American National Standards Institute’s Electric Vehicles Standards Panel released a report April 23 finding that at least 36 standards, regulations, codes, and other measures are needed to facilitate the safe, mass deployment of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure. The report, Standardization Roadmap for Electric Utilities – Version 1.0 identified and assessed existing standards, codes, and regulations, as well as gaps where new or revised standards are needed for plug-in electric vehicles, and plug-in electric hybrids. The gaps identified related to delayed battery overheating events; storage of lithium-ion batteries; packaging and transport of waste batteries; audible warning systems; and the labeling of high-voltage batteries, cables, and disconnect devices.
