To ensure the seamless functionality of Plug&Charge technology, all ecosystem partners must adhere to ISO 15118 standards. These standards define communication protocols and infrastructure requirements for EV charging systems. Longship has demonstrated its commitment to upholding these standards through rigorous testing and quality assurance processes, resulting in a successful audit.
This achievement is a significant turning point for Longship. Longship’s full-service environment can now support Charge Point Operators (CPOs) and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in implementing Plug&Charge. This breakthrough is expected to accelerate the adoption of PnC, setting a new industry precedent. Longship’s successful audit is an internal victory and brings us closer to realizing a seamless and uncomplicated EV charging vision for all drivers. As more companies like Longship meet the ISO 15118 standards and pass Hubject’s Plug&Charge audit, the likelihood of turning this vision into reality increases.
The emergence of Plug&Charge technology holds great promise for transforming the EV charging experience into a simple process akin to plugging in the vehicle. Longship’s recent accomplishment represents a significant stride toward making this future a reality.
Looking ahead to the future of EV charging, Longship IT Solutions’ success in passing Hubject’s Plug&Charge audit is a cause for celebration. It signifies progress for the company and the entire PnC ecosystem and, ultimately, for every EV driver on the road today and in the future.
