EVerest: AC and DC electric vehicle charging with open source software and hardware

We will give a brief introduction to electric vehicle charging technology, including an overview of the standards and protocols involved. This will be followed by a deep dive into how you can build your own AC charging station with open hardware, utilizing the EVerest open source software stack. Concluding the talk, we will present an outlook on how you could assemble a DC charging station with readily available components.

The primary goal of EVerest is to develop and maintain an open source software stack for EV charging infrastructure. You can think of it as an operating system for EV chargers with implementations of communication protocols, software modules for representations of hardware devices and tools for simulating the charging process. In this talk you will learn how you can adapt and use EVerest with existing charging station hardware, as well as building your own AC and DC charging stations. We will show you how you can get started by using open hardware designs and schematics in combination with open source software to build a charging station that will reliably charge your electric vehicle.
