Updated standards to better address safety of EV fast charging stations

Case study preview

Electric vehicles are currently the most popular option for replacing fossil fuel-powered cars. As a result, governments are heavily investing in the development of charging station infrastructure to support the growing demand for electric vehicles (EVs).

But the path to electric vehicles hasn’t been an easy one. Multiple incidents were reported when EVs consumed a current of 30A or higher while charging.

This case study explores:

  • The growing demand of electric vehicles;
  • Safety concerns related to electric vehicles; and
  • Standard updates to address safety gaps.
