ISO 15118 Testing Symposium 
The 10th anniversary edition of the ISO 15118 testing symposium and the OCPP2.0 Plugfest is hosted by ElaadNL and takes place at the same time and location. You can find the official announcement of the Testing Symposium via the following link:
The registration is closed for testers. If you would like to participate as an observer, please let us know via

The ISO/IEC 15118 Testing Symposium brings together companies from the Smart Charging community and their technology experts to conduct conformance & interoperability tests for Electric Vehicles and Charging Infrastructures or respective Electronic Control Units (ECUs) and Communication Controllers.

OCPP 2.0 Plugfest

The OCPP 2.0 Plugfest brings together companies from the Open Charge Alliance community and their technology experts to conduct OCPP 2.0 conformance and interoperability tests. This is a hands-on event digging deep into implementing, supporting and testing OCPP 2.0. You can join this event even if you only have some basic use cases implemented. See for more information

Elaad Talks
On Thursday afternoon inspiring speakers will present their view on “the Four Freedoms of EV Charging”. 
The final program will follow soon.

Anniversary dinner and party
Enjoy the possibility of an informal exchange during a joint dinner. And after that: party time!

Public Key Infrastructure Workshop
An important aspect of ISO 15118 is a supporting Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) for managing certificates. This workshop will explain how a PKI works and how it fits into the EV charging ecosystem. You will see two different demonstrations of PKI services. We will discuss what would be a practical and open way to design the PKI for the future that will be widely accepted by the industry.

Smart Charging Showcase
The Smart Charging Showcase will demonstrate how pricing information of an EMSP, charging needs from the EV, grid restrictions from the DSO and charging limits from the CSO are all combined to result in an optimal charging schedule to meet everybody’s wishes.

OCPP Tutorial
– Learn more about the background of OCPP, when and where it started and where it is used. 
– Learn more about the different OCPP versions (OCPP1.5, 1.6 and 2.0) and their functionalities.
– Learn more about the OCPP Certification Program.
– Take a deep dive in OCPP2.0 and its support option for ISO 15118.
