Electric vehicle supply equipment NEMA update

Issue 31 – September 2011

The National Electrical Manufacturers' Association (NEMA) in the US recently visited Capitol Hill in support of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) deployment incentives in the 2012 budget. The NEMA EVSE/Systems Section communicated the impact of electric vehicles (EVs) on infrastructure (and vice versa). NEMA organised the EVSE/Systems Section to:

  • support the development of the electric vehicle supply equipment market
  • educate the market on the features and value of EVSE infrastructure around the world
  • develop the technology, application, and product standards.

By developing consistent domestic and international codes and standards that ensure the safety and interoperability of equipment, NEMA and its EVSE Section members understand the importance of providing consumers with a product that is safe and provides a quality driving experience.

Summarised from an article by Harry Massey, NEMA Industry Director, in NEMA's Electroindustry magazine, August 2011.
