Plug & Charge Video Tutorial

putting the pieces together

ISO 15118 only defines the communication between electric vehicles and charging stations. But if you don't know how the Public Key Infrastructures (PKIs) and e-mobility business processes work to bring the complete Plug & Charge experience to life, then it's as if you built a brand new and fascinating car - but forgot to put the engine in it.

Don’t worry! With the resources here, you’ll be covered from A to Z.

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

The ISO 15118 Manual lays the foundation for a perfect understanding of the standard itself. The Plug & Charge Video Tutorial will build on this groundwork  and expend on the intricacies within this ecosystem. It let's you in on the implementation details of the necessary PKIs and 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 Q3 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.
