Hubject, the world’s largest network for electric vehicle charging among providers, announces that Josev, the operating system for Switch’s integrated chargers, is now certified for Plug&Charge.

Manufacturers and EVSE networks can now integrate Plug&Charge into hardware and networks quickly and competitively.

Josev enables integration of next-generation ISO 15118-2 and ISO 15118-20 functions, including bidirectional AC and DC current flow and megawatt charging system (MCS).

In addition, electric vehicle charging system manufacturers will save considerable time in the ISO 15118-2 Plug&Charge certification process.

Hubject certification can now be condensed into a single session, reducing the certification process by weeks.

This process also reduces costs, with some Josev customers reporting savings of up to 10,000 pounds.

“Incorporating the latest industry standards into our products to enhance user experience and thereby increase electric vehicle adoption is a vital part of Switch’s DNA,” said Marc Mültin, founder and CEO of Switch.

“Our goal is to help electric vehicle infrastructure developers create new revenue streams at the same pace. Additionally, we are excited to pass on time and cost savings to our customers – Josev is user-friendly and solid as a rock,” Mültin added.

Steffen Rhinow, Director of Plug&Charge at Hubject, commented: “Now that Josev has Plug&Charge certification, charger manufacturers who are its clients have an advantage in obtaining Hubject certification.”

“This represents a significant step forward for the industry, which can now scale more reliably and quickly than ever before,” Rhinow added.
