The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Electric Vehicles Standards Panel (EVSP) announced this week the publication of a Progress Report on activity within the standardization community to address the gaps and recommendations described in the ANSI EVSP’s Standardization Roadmap for Electric Vehicles – Version 2.0 (May 2013).
Developed by representatives from nearly 60 private- and public-sector organizations, including the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), the Progress Report provides a snapshot of the current state of work by those developing standards for PEVs (both all-electric and plug-in hybrids) and the charging infrastructure needed to support them. NECA is involved in ongoing work on standards related to this type of technology.
Available as a free download, the report outlines significant developments including new areas where there is a perceived need for additional standardization work to facilitate the safe, mass deployment of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs) and charging infrastructure in the United States. A companion document, the ANSI EVSP Roadmap Standards Compendium, has also been updated, providing additional information about relevant standards.
The ANSI Electric Vehicles Standards Panel (EVSP) is a cross-sector coordinating body whose objective is to foster coordination and collaboration on standardization matters among public and private sector stakeholders to enable the safe, mass deployment of electric vehicles and associated infrastructure in the United States with international coordination, adaptability, and engagement.
