The American National Standards Institute on Dec. 2 issued a progress report (http://publicaa.ansi.org/sites/apdl/evsp/ANSI_EVSP_Roadmap_May_2013.pdf) on an organized standardization effort to help electric vehicles thrive in the U.S. marketplace. The effort focuses on both the vehicle and the charging infrastructure. The report describes advances made, and challenges that persist, since May 2013 when ANSI published a document titled "Standardization Roadmap for Electric Vehicles – Version 2.0." Developed by about 60 private and public organizations constituting ANSI's Electric Vehicles Standards Panel (EVSP), the progress report reviews 61 specific areas. Of those, it notes that 44 still have standardization "gaps" that need to be filled. In many cases, SAE International standards are being developed and/or revised to fill gaps, including J2907 Hybrid Motor Ratings and J2908 Hybrid Electric Powertrain Power Test Methods and Definitions. "Three and half years ago, the ANSI EVSP took up the challenge of articulating a roadmap of needed areas of standardization that would help foster consumer adoption of electric vehicles in the United States," said S. Joe Bhatia, ANSI president and CEO. "The panel's latest progress report demonstrates the ongoing commitment by private- and public-sector stakeholders to keep moving this work forward."
