The main goals of the 1st workshop were:
· To present the initial ideas and underlying thoughts for the specific guidelines and to provide an opportunity for early stakeholder feedback
· To obtain information on specific topics in order to further sharpen the guidelines’ focus and to define a realistic technological platform of system parameters
· To define concrete and specific goals with importance for stakeholders of the e-mobility sector in general and for practitioners of the EGCI in particular
· To exploit the expertise and knowledge of the stakeholders in order to identify the main values of a Common Parameter Platform (CPP) covering, for example, typical vehicle sizes and weights or battery capacities.
