SAE International and the IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) on April 27 announced that the two organizations have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to establish a strategic partnership in vehicular technology related to the smart grid. In doing so, IEEE-SA and SAE are striving to create a more efficient and collaborative standards-development environment. "Our stakeholders have keen interest in the smart grid because it’s the infrastructure needed to recharge hybrid and electric vehicles,” said Jack Pokrzywa, Director of Global Ground Vehicle Standards for SAE International. “IEEE-SA is a natural partner for us in this area because of its international leadership position in smart grid standards development. Closer collaboration between SAE International and IEEE-SA will benefit industry by accelerating more meaningful standards that drive greater improvements in market access, cost reductions, and technological innovation.” Both SAE International and IEEE-SA have made significant contributions in standards areas including plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs), vehicle-to-grid (V2G) communications and power, and the smart grid. SAE says its ground vehicle standards technical committees are leading the vehicle transportation industry in development of standards to provide safer processes and practices for effective implementation of hybrid-electric vehicles. A total of 24 SAE ground vehicle electrification committees with more than 780 members have developed 46 standards; more than 30 others are in progress.
