Recharge des véhicules électriques : comment simplifier l’expérience utilisateur avec le “Plug & Charge” selon la norme ISO 15118 ?

Les standards d’émission agressifs imposés par l’UE stimulent la croissance des nouveaux véhicules électriques (VE). Avec autant de fabricants et de nouveaux véhicules électriques sur la route, il est nécessaire de répondre rapidement aux problématiques complexes et diverses auxquelles l’écosystème de la recharge publique est confronté, afin d’en améliorer l’adoption : en particulier les questions de tarification et facturation, de cybersécurité et enfin d’anxiété liée à l’autonomie des batteries.

Rejoignez les leaders de l’industrie et de l’innovation technologique Thales et Vedecom pour découvrir comment la nécessité de sécuriser les technologies pousse à mettre en place un véritable écosystème de la recharge du véhicule électrique, global et transparent, afin d’offrir une meilleure expérience aux utilisateurs avec le plug & charge.

Main issues

  • Europe has seen impressive sales of plug-in electric vehicles (EVs) with an increase of 44% in 2019. The European Union’s emissions standards require all passenger cars reach 95 grams of carbon dioxide per kilometer in 2021 with plans for 30 million EVs on the roads by 2030.
  • Increased volume often brings complexity: confusing EV charging pricing and billing, complicated public charging, plus anxiety about battery life and range capacity/availability of charging stations for EVs top the list.
  • Tech solutions must smooth out the EV ecosystem and alleviate driver and industry concerns to drive higher adoption and meet emission deadlines.
  • Plug & Charge automates charging payments for all EV manufacturers using the ISO 15118 standard with secure encryption, decryption and two-way authentication.

The implementation of the user-friendly Plug & Charge and international ISO 15118 standard will enable drivers, OEMs, and charging points to interact smoothly for a seamless charging experience. EVs will be automatically identified at a charging station and drivers enabled to plug in their charging cable to any station with secure, automatic billing without the need for an app, RFID card or physical charging card on site.

Seamless Plug & Charge requires safe, secure technology to make a reality

To move to a seamless Plug & Charge experience, Thales and Vedecom will discuss current challenges and explore how to implement a solid cybersecurity architecture to solve identified issues.

Thales – Pierre Girard : Pierre is a Senior Cybersecurity Expert in the Automotive and mobility services business line at Thales. He co-designs security solutions with customers and partners. He is also technology advisor at corporate level. He was previously Principal investigator for smart cities in the Strategy and Innovation division. Before that, Pierre has managed the security architecture team in Gemalto security labs for more than 10 years. Pierre holds a PhD in computer security.

Vedecom – Joe Matta : With a strong background in systems engineering, Joe joined VEDECOM’s innovative charging team in 2016. As a systems architect, he led the research and development of wireless power transfer solutions for almost three years. Since 2019, Joe is the head of VEDECOM’s smart charging activities working on multiple technologies and use cases, including Plug and Charge and Reverse Power Transfer. Joe is also the coordinator of the Mobena initiative – towards a new generation of electromobility – and the official representative of VEDECOM at the European Commission’s STF sub-group on governance and standards for communication exchange in the electromobility ecosystem.


VEDECOM is a French Institute of public/private Research dedicated to sustainable mobility. Created in 2014, VEDECOM is an “ITE” (Institute for Energy Transition) and regroups more than 50 members for a large-scale collaboration between industrials, academics, and local authorities.

VEDECOM is organized in three research domains: Electrification, connected and automated vehicle, and New mobility solutions & shared energies.  Our mission is to develop disruptive technologies and cross-disciplinary vision of new usages, for sustainable, safe, efficient, and affordable mobility.


Thales : Thales (Euronext Paris: HO) is a global leader in advanced technologies, investing in digital and “deep tech” innovations – connectivity, big data, artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and quantum computing – to build a confident future crucial for the development of our societies. The Group provides its customers – businesses, organisations and governments – in the defense, aeronautics, space, automotive, and digital identity and security domains with solutions, services and products that help them fulfil their critical role, consideration for the individual being the driving force behind all decisions. Thales has 81,000 employees in 68 countries. In 2020 the Group generated sales of €17 billion.

In the scope of EV Charging, Thales is involved in two consortiums developping PlugNCharge ecosystem :

  1. Mobena :
  2.  Software Republic :
