The California Energy Commission (CEC) and ElaadNL will host a joint hybrid workshop to discuss public key infrastructure (PKI) and governance for electric vehicle (EV) charging.
Recent market and policy developments have accelerated industry interest in PKI for EV charging in North America. Notably, the final rules for the National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Formula Program require funded chargers to be capable of Plug and Charge beginning February 28, 2024, which will rely on PKI to ensure secure transactions. Further, the expected presence of multiple PKI operators in both North America and Europe will necessitate agreement on governance and rules to ensure interoperability across PKIs, fair competition, and a consistent Plug and Charge experience.
This workshop will continue cross-industry discussions about PKI and governance which began at the Vehicle Interoperability Testing Symposium (VOLTS) in May 2023. A key goal for this workshop will be to identify a neutral, industry-accepted forum for future discussions about PKI and governance in North America.
