SAE INTERNATIONAL AND GERMAN INSTITUTE FOR STANDARDIZATION (DIN)
IEEE-SA, SAE International and DIN organizing International eMobility Standards Symposium
for 18 February 2013 in Anaheim, Calif.
Bangalore, 22ndJanuary, 2013– IEEE, 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)
“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—
All three organizations—
SAE International 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 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 standardization projects with direct focus on EVs. Beyond, DIN is strongly engaged in the continuous enhancement of international collaboration between all relevant organizations.
A leading global developer of smart grid standards, IEEE has more than 100 standards and standards in development spanning the wholesmart gridspectrum, including many that are specifically related to electro-mobility. For example, IEEE P2030.1™ “Guide for Electric-Sourced Transportation Infrastructure”
“Consolidation around a global framework of broadly adopted standards would infuse eMobility with new momentum for market growth and technological innovation,”
The target audience for the International eMobility Standards Symposiumspans original equipment manufacturer (OEM) design engineers; battery manufacturers;
The International eMobility Standards Symposium will take place the day before the SAE 2013 Hybrid & Electric Vehicle Technologies Symposium (http://www.sae.org/
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.
IEEE, a large, global technical professional organization, is dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. Through its highly cited publications, conferences, technology standards, and professional and educational activities, IEEE is the trusted voice on a wide variety of areas ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics.
