At its plenary session of 26 November 2020, on proposal of DG MOVE, the Sustainable Transport Forum decided to set up three new sub-groups, including the sub-group on governance and standards for communication exchange in the electromobility ecosystem (with particular focus on ISO 15118-20 and related PKI).
This sub-group will assist the Commission in defining minimum principles and creating a governance framework that allows an open, single, secure and economically efficient management of the digital communications between the electric vehicle and the recharging infrastructure. The resulting governance framework will need to ensure full coherent among the different communication areas of the EV recharging ecosystem. Moreover, the sub-group will assist the Commission in order to support European and international standardisation, identifying and covering existing gaps, paving the way for harmonisation and convergence of communication standards and protocols.
Following a call for applications, the Director-General for Mobility and Transport has appointed twenty-two members and one observer to this sub-group.
The sub-group will discuss and adopt Terms of Reference at its first meeting, after which these will be published here.
