Workshop on standards and codes for electric drive vehicles

ANSI workshop will consider current, future standards, codes, conformity assessment activities needed to facilitate the deployment of grid-connected electric vehicles, charging infrastructure, support services

On April 5–6, 2ANSI Workshop011, in Bethesda, Maryland, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) will host the ANSI Workshop: Standards and Codes for Electric Drive Vehicles to drive the safe and effective implementation of electric vehicles through standards and conformance.

Convened on behalf of the U.S. Department of Energy and the Idaho National Laboratory, the workshop will consider current and future U.S. domestic, regional, and international standards, codes, and conformity assessment activities needed to facilitate the widespread acceptance and deployment of grid-connected electric vehicles, charging infrastructure, and support services.

With billions of dollars in public and private-sector investment at stake, few technological innovations have captured as much attention in recent years as electric vehicles. With both the Obama administration and consumers pushing for electric vehicle technology, the standardization community needs to work together to establish technologies and infrastructure that are effective, safe, and ready to accommodate this major shift in our national transportation landscape.

The workshop will consider current and future U.S. domestic, regional, and international standards, codes, conformity assessment activities, and education and training initiatives. The workshop will provide a neutral environment where all interested stakeholders can engage in discussions that will identify gaps in coverage and explore opportunities for collaboration and coordination. The input from the workshop will go into a report to be prepared afterwards.
