Plenary Meeting Overview

The ANSI Electric Vehicles Standards Panel (EVSP) will convene its second plenary meeting on November 17-18, 2011, in Arlington, Virginia, to continue work on a strategic roadmap identifying the standards and conformity assessment programs needed to enable the widespread acceptance and deployment of electric vehicles and associated infrastructure in the United States.

Work to develop the standardization roadmap began in June, with representatives from more than forty leading organizations from the public and private sector actively participating. To date the work has been carried out electronically among seven working groups focused on energy storage systems, vehicle components, the vehicle-user interface, charging systems, communications, infrastructure installation, and education and training.

The November meeting will be the first opportunity to discuss and refine in a face-to-face setting an initial draft of the roadmap. The meeting will include both general sessions and breakout groups to discuss the roadmap narratives relating to standards for electric vehicles, the associated infrastructure and support services. While in person attendance is strongly encouraged, teleconference participation will be available.

Participants

Participation in the November meeting is open to all affected parties, including representatives of the automotive, electrotechnical and utilities industries, relevant trade associations, standards development and conformity assessment organizations, government agencies, and academia.
