Takafumi Anegawa
President of CHAdeMO Association

First of all, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all of you for your understanding and continuous support for activities of CHAdeMO Association.

Since its establishment in 2010, CHAdeMO Association has continued efforts to support the spread of Electric vehicles and charging infrastructure in the world. This year, CHAdeMO has reached the 10 year anniversary, and it is an honer for me to be inaugurated as a president in the year of that milestone. I would like to thank the former President Mr. Shiga for driving the activities of the Association for eight years from 2011.

As regulations on gasoline and diesel vehicles in Europe and China have become increasingly severe, and electric mobility is becoming a global megatrend, we are developing new technology expansion, such as high-power charging, ChaoJi,  unified standard between Japan and China, low-power charging standard for motorcycles and small vehicles, and deployment of V2X technology around the world.

By steadily promoting these activities, we will work to achieve the two priority issues of 2019 action plan, “Extend Functionality” and ”Geographical Expansion“. We would highly appreciate your continuous support.
