Secure Technology Alliance Webinar to Explore Payment Platform Innovations for Electric Vehicle Charging

PRINCETON JUNCTION, N.J., Jan. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Electric vehicle (EV) charging stations have seen immense growth in North America: there are now 18 EV charging networks1 offering over 28,900 public charging locations with over 87,000 charging outlets in U.S. and Canada.2 With this rapid growth, the industry faces challenges in providing drivers with a consistent and easy-to-use payment experience from one EV charging station to the next. The Secure Technology Alliance is hosting a webinar on payment platform innovations for EV charging stations to educate industry stakeholders on new technologies that can address this challenge.

The webinar, “Electric Vehicle Charging Payments,” will be held on February 5, 2020 at 1pm ET/10am PT. EV charging networks, automotive manufacturers, issuers, processors, merchants and industry suppliers can register at

“No driver today questions the ability to approach a gas station and pay to fill-up their tank with gas.  This is not the case with EV charging today,” said Randy Vanderhoof, executive director of the Secure Technology Alliance. “Speakers at this webinar will cover the current status of electric vehicle charging payments and present emerging standards and technologies that will enable convenient, secure payments. The approaches discussed in this webinar will address the uncertainty EV drivers face when charging their vehicles, and ultimately work towards helping to drive EV adoption and use.”

Speakers for the webinar are: Jordan Kaplan, UL; Oliver Manahan, Infineon Technologies; Nick Pisarev, G+D Mobile Security; Barton Sidles, Hubject; and Randy Vanderhoof, Secure Technology Alliance.

Attendees of this webinar will leave with a better understanding of an open payment platform for electric vehicle charging, and:

  • The EV charging market and use cases in the U.S.
  • The existing EV charging infrastructure and methods of payments for EV charging stations
  • New capabilities provided by the ISO 15118-2 standard and Plug & Charge
  • The benefits of open payment technology for EV charging

This webinar was created by the Secure Technology Alliance Payments Council. The council focuses on securing payments and payment applications in the U.S. through industry dialogue, commentary on standards and specifications, technical guidance and educational programs.
