IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Collaborating With SAE International and German Institute for Standardization (DIN) on Electromobility
PISCATAWAY, N.J. --(Business Wire)--
IEEE (News - Alert), the world's largest professional organization advancing technology
for humanity, today announced that the IEEE Standards Association
(IEEE-SA) is collaborating with DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung e.
V.), the German Institute for Standardization, and SAE International,
the global body of engineers and technical professionals developing
volunteer consensus standards for passenger cars, in organizing a new
event to explore how standards are driving innovation in electric
vehicles (EV) and charging infrastructure globally, lessons learned from
the field of "electromobility" standards implementation and gaps where
standards are needed to propel the EV market to its next stage of
growth. The International eMobility Standards Symposium is scheduled to
take place 18 February 2013 at the Hilton Anaheim (Calif.)
"The vehicle electrification will be successfully implemented only if
consumer experience is repeatedly positive," said Jack Pokrzywa,
director of global ground vehicle standards with SAE International.
"Standards developed collaboratively across various sectors and regions
will assist in creating that type of experience and will lay foundation
for more advanced solutions of the future. A conference organized by
three prominent standards-development organizations (SDOs) such as DIN,
IEEE and SAE clearly enables and promotes that collaboration."
Rüdiger Marquardt, vice director, DIN, added: "The promise of
electromobility is tremendous in terms of reducing society's dependency
on fossil fuels and providing low-emission mobility in urban
environments and beyond. The success of eMobility depends largely on
international cross-sectoral and cross-border coordination in standards
development. Uniform standards and specifications-for charging stations,
billing systems, etc.-are needed so that EVs can be produced, sold and
used across borders. Global standards will help ensure vehicle safety
and data protection."
All three organizations-SAE International, DIN and the IEEE-SA-already
have made significant contributions in standards in areas such as EVs,
vehicle-to-grid (V2G) communications, power and the smart grid.
SAE International (http://ev.sae.org/)
develops standards to provide safer processes and practices for
effective implementation of hybrid/electric vehicles. Over 25 SAE
International Ground Vehicle electrification committees with 780 members
have developed 64 standards and are currently focusing on continue
development of standards in critical areas such as battery safety and
vehicle-to-grid interoperability. As a leading SDO in the US National
Roadmap for Smart Grid and "Interoperability Standards to Support
Plug-In Electric Vehicles," SAE International works very closely with
all domestic, but also international stakeholders, to help enable safe,
reliable and effective global implementation of vehicle electrification
technology based on universal and agreed standards.
DIN and its electromobility office, established in 2009 (http://www.e-mobility.din.de),
serves as a central and neutral contact point for all aspects of
electromobility standardization, with the aim of introducing technical
standardization within the international context at an early stage and,
thus, sustainably strengthening the German economy. At present, with its
committees for automotive and electrotechnical standardization, DIN
contributes actively to more than 30 ISO and IEC (News - Alert) standardization
projects with direct focus on EVs. Beyond, DIN is strongly engaged in
the continuous enhancement of international collaboration between all
A leading global developer of smart grid standards, IEEE has more than
100 standards and standards in development spanning the whole smart
grid spectrum, including many that are specifically related to
electromobility. For example, IEEE P2030.1™ "Guide for Electric-Sourced
Transportation Infrastructure" is being developed to establish a
knowledge base addressing terminology, methods, equipment and planning
requirements for road-based personal and mass transportation and
its impacts on commercial and industrial systems such as for generation,
transmission and distribution systems of electrical power.
"Consolidation around a global framework of broadly adopted standards
would infuse eMobility with new momentum for market growth and
technological innovation," said Edward Rashba, director, new business
ventures, with the IEEE-SA. "Our collaboration with DIN and SAE
International in organizing the International eMobility Standards
Symposium is intended to share intelligence on the existing landscape of
standards and frame consensus around future needs."
The target audience for the International eMobility Standards Symposium
spans original equipment manufacturer (OEM) design engineers; battery
manufacturers; tier and component suppliers; product-design engineers
for light-, medium- and heavy-duty vehicles; infrastructure suppliers
(such as for charging stations); researchers; governments; utilities,
and other SDOs. To participate in the International eMobility Standards
Symposium, please visit http://www.sae.org/events/iemss/.
The International eMobility Standards Symposium will take place the day
before the SAE
2013 Hybrid & Electric Vehicle Technologies Symposium (http://www.sae.org/events/hybridev/),
also at the Hilton Anaheim and now in its 10th year.

About the IEEE Standards Association
The IEEE Standards Association, a globally recognized standards-setting
body within IEEE, develops consensus standards through an open process
that engages industry and brings together a broad stakeholder community.
IEEE standards set specifications and best practices based on current
scientific and technological knowledge. The IEEE-SA has a portfolio of
over 900 active standards and more than 500 standards under development.
