V2G Clarity


Expert Knowledge on 

Vehicle-2-Grid Communication (ISO 15118) 



Clear. Informative. Sound. 

Imagine ...

A world where charging an electric vehicle is as easy as charging your phone. 

A system where no RFID card or smartphone authentication is needed, and secure communications and billing are taken care of automatically.

Having technology that goes a step further and enables smart grid applications like load control and bi-directional energy transfer.

Guess what? This idyllic future is here now. All that's left is to find out how to implement it into your business.

Master Vehicle-2-Grid (V2G) Communication

with in-depth ISO 15118 guides

Easy access to a future-proof EV charging standard

The standardization bodies ISO and IEC joined forces to specify a digital communication protocol between electric vehicles (EVs) and charging stations called "Road vehicles - Vehicle-to-Grid Communication Interface," also known as ISO 15118.

These ISO 15118 Manual and online courses are your knowledge shortcut to understanding exactly how this technology works.
