American National Standards Institute (ANSI)
25 West 43rd Street, 4th Floor
New York, NY, 10036

Press release date: October 2, 2012

The Department of Energy (DOE) is requesting public comments on the preliminary framing document for its EV Everywhere Grand Challenge, which seeks to assist U.S. companies in the development of convenient and affordable plug-in electric vehicles within the next 10 years. The challenge, which was announced by President Barack Obama in March 2012, is part of the DOE’s Clean Energy Grand Challenges program, which established ambitious clean energy and sustainability goals intended to benefit the whole country.

In April, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) bolstered that effort by releasing its comprehensive Standardization Roadmap for Electric Vehicles – Version 1.0, developed by the Institute’s Electric Vehicles Standards Panel (EVSP). The roadmap assesses the standards, codes, and regulations, as well as conformance and training programs, needed to facilitate the safe, mass deployment of electric vehicles and charging infrastructure in the United States. Work on the Standardization Roadmap and its associated ANSI EVSP Roadmap Standards Compendium, a searchable spreadsheet which inventories standards connected to EV and related infrastructure, began in June 2011 and involved representatives of 80 relevant organizations.

The EV Everywhere Grand Challenge seeks to encourage government, nonprofit, and industry collaboration that will allow the widespread successful introduction of cost-competitive electric vehicles that can be manufactured and sold without government subsidies. The DOE has held a number of workshops with relevant stakeholders – including a June meeting in Detroit, Michigan – as part of its efforts to bring together stakeholders from industry, academia, state and local government, and other energy organizations.

The DOE is seeking feedback on all major elements of the framing document, which can be accessed here. Specific input is sought regarding the initiative’s overarching goal and the metrics used to determine whether a given electric vehicle is competitively priced, potential scenarios for EV deployment that would achieve this goal, and DOE’s role in supporting the effort. General comments, updated technical data, and factual corrections are also welcomed.

Comments on the initiative’s framing document should be sent to All public comments must be received on or before Monday, October 29, 2012, in order to be considered. In keeping with DOE policy, all comments received from outside sources will be posted online here.
