As of the 10th January 2017, Ingeteam has been part of the CharIn organisation (Charging Interface Initiative e.V.), focused on growing the fast charging system for CCS Combo electric vehicles.
This Berlin-based CharIn e. V. association was founded by Audi, BMW, Daimler, Mennekes, Opel, Phoenix Contact, Porsche, TÜV SÜD and Volkswagen. The purpose of the association is to provide sufficient support to the fast charging infrastructure for the next generation of electric vehicles with higher operating ranges, which are currently being developed by many manufacturers.
CharIn is drawing up the specification for a new 350 kW ultra-fast charger offering charging times of just 20 minutes for 300 kms.
Now that Ingeteam is a member of this organisation, the company is in a position to collaborate in drawing up the technical specifications required for the development of rapid charging
, and may possibly conduct interoperability tests.
