The ANSI Electric Vehicles Standards Panel (EVSP) is a cross-sector coordinating body whose objective is to foster coordination and collaboration on standardization matters among public- and private-sector stakeholders to enable the safe, mass deployment of electric vehicles and associated infrastructure in the United States with international coordination, adaptability, and engagement. Outputs of the EVSP in the 2011-2014 timeframe included a Standardization Roadmap for Electric Vehicles (Version 2.0, May 2013)a Progress Report (November 2014) against same, and a Standards Compendium. Though the priorities have shifted in many respects with the new focus on EVs@Scale, aspects of the earlier EVSP work may be drawn upon as needed.


In 2022-23, the EVSP is planning to develop a Roadmap of Standards and Codes for Electric Vehicles (EVs) at scale. In furtherance of the Biden Administration’s goal for a clean energy future, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy (EERE) Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO) issued a June 2021 lab call funding opportunity announcement. The lab call included a pillar on codes and standards with the goal to “identify and address challenges and barriers to the integration of EVs@Scale charging with the grid created by uncoordinated development of codes and standards and the rapid advances in vehicle and charging technologies.” The EVs@Scale lab consortium formed in response committed to develop a 2022 roadmap like the earlier ANSI EV standards roadmap. Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) is the lead lab for the codes and standards pillar, supported by consortium members National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), Idaho National Laboratory (INL), and Sandia National Laboratories (SNL). The EV@Scale initiative supports federal and state funding associated with deploying EV charging infrastructure nationwide.

The priorities of the codes and standards effort will be to identify the most critical standards for EVs at scale, including for standards to address high power DC charging, storage (i.e. microgrid, distributed energy resource management systems) integrated with DC charging, vehicle grid integration, high power scalable/interoperable wireless charging, and vehicle-oriented systems.

The EVSP provides a forum for the development of the public-private partnership needed to facilitate the large-scale introduction of electric vehicles into the market. Participation in the EVSP is open to EV stakeholders that have operations in the U.S. Participants include representatives of the automotive, electrotechnical and utilities industries, relevant trade associations, standards development and conformity assessment organizations, government agencies, and academia, providing a range of perspectives.

Subject-matter experts interested in participating are invited to review the WG architecture and sign up for one or more working groups. It is envisioned that the working groups will hold virtual meetings, twice per month, over the course of the coming year. A draft roadmap is targeted for mid-February 2023, which will then undergo public review before being finalized by mid-May 2023.

As a general matter, ANSI undertakes to coordinate standardization activity for emerging technologies and national/global priorities on behalf of the community of interest. Those who benefit are encouraged to support ANSI’s engagement through ANSI membership. ANSI welcomes direct sponsorships of the EVSP activity with appropriate recognition benefits. All sponsorship revenue is directly applied to help offset the Institute’s costs of operating the EVSP.
