The increasing use of EVs will reduce oil dependency and the environmental impact of transportation. Beyond the personal vehicle market which includes cars, electric scooters and bikes, service providers and e-tailers are purchasing thousands of electric delivery vehicles. Electric buses are becoming widespread in many cities.
Improved battery technologies have reduced the cost and extended the operational range of EVs. Wireless and plug-in charging systems are also evolving rapidly. EVs will even be able to store energy and feed it back into the grid when required. IEC Standards are essential in helping stakeholders to provide the whole EV infrastructure.
IEC work ensures that electric vehicles operate and connect safely to the electricity grid.
