A Plugfest is the chance for OCPP developers to test their Charging Station or Charging Station Management System with other implementations from all over the world. That way you can see if your OCPP 2.0.1 or 1.6 device performs correctly. During the Plugfest you will be able to share knowledge and questions with the leading OCPP experts. The Plugfest will also host an interesting side-program with presentations and demonstrations on OCPP & Battery Swapping, Complaince Testing Tool and Energy Management. Check out the video below for an impression of the Plugfest.
