On a European level, it’s important we develop joint standards

Dietrich Sümmermann is e-mobility expert and strategist and Chairman of the Share & Charge foundation. During the 2019 symposium, he discussed his experience with applying Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) such as blockchain in service delivery for charging EVs. In what way can this benefit users, public authorities, charging service providers and mobility service providers? Does it offer practical and comfortable charging solutions? ‘Millions of people are crossing borders every day, so on a European level, it’s important we develop joint standards in order for EV drivers to have a similar, seamless charging experience, in every country. Ideally, you just plug in and everything else is automated.’
