Plug & Charge Video Tutorial - V2G Clarity

Video tutorial

putting the puzzle pieces together

ISO 15118 is only half the truth - it defines only the communication between the electric vehicle and charging station. But if you don't know how the PKIs and e-mobility stakeholders' business processes work to bring the complete Plug & Charge experience to life, then it's as if you built a brand new fascinating car - but forgot to put the engine into it. I'm here to fill that missing (knowledge) piece.

This video tutorial will lift your ISO 15118 expertise to a whole new level.

The ISO 15118 Manual is the basis for a perfect understanding of the standard itself. But this video tutorial goes even beyond. It let's you in on the implementation details of the necessary PKIsand business processes of all e-mobility stakeholders involved in the Plug & Charge experience. 

Based on a drafted but not yet published standard. You won't get this knowledge anywhere else. 

This video explains the so-called certificate provisioning - business processes, interfaces and data that needs to be exchanged between the e-mobility stakeholders using a set of PKIs in order to bring the user-friendly Plug & Charge experience to life. Exlusive knowlege which you will get nowhere else.

This is a free sneak peak into the paid version.

This VDE Application Rule prepares an international standard and closes the specification gaps of ISO 15118 with regards to the provisioning of digital certificates and cryptographic key material necessary for the Plug & Charge use case.

It is only available in German so far but will be officially translated into English as well when published in Q2 2017.

As a little favor, I translated the first passages and the table of contents into English (highlighted in green).

As soon as the VDE application rule is published, I'll set the link to that published document.

My video tutorial is specifically about chapter 9 which covers the necessary business processes, interfaces and data that needs to be exchanged between the e-mobility stakeholders.
