2:10 pm–2:40 pm | Fri, March 22, 2024
While the path to interoperability seems simple in theory, the EV charging sector is not in alignment when it comes to standardization and stakeholder collaboration. Merely a small portion of charging stations globally actually achieve true interoperability, leading to disjointed user experiences, constrained accessibility choices, and higher costs for EV charging station owners.
This panel will discuss:
- The systems and collaborations required from the entire EV ecosystem (automakers, charging solution providers, and regulatory support) to make interoperability a reality
- The current solutions and system integration technologies that are paving the way right now for interoperability success
- How interoperability can lead to reduced infrastructure costs, better customer experience, and enhanced revenue opportunities
