EDITORIAL – EV charging roaming interoperability to play a major role in pushing EV adoption
Higher adoption of open standards for charging points and charging interface will be necessary for EV charging infrastructure to meet the demands of the market and consumers
It is not very often that we see competing companies coming together to share their core technology and resources, especially when it can directly affect their business. Partnerships of this nature are now regularly happening in the EV charging infrastructure segment across major EV markets where network operators are coming together and signing roaming interoperability, or ‘eRoaming’ agreements to make EVs more practical and affordable, thus accelerating their adoption. Interoperability pact between operators basically allow an EV user to use various charging networks under different operators by taking membership with just one operator.
