On June 20-21, 2011, in Detroit, the first plenary meeting of the ANSI Electric Vehicles Standards Panel (EVSP) will take place to initiate work on a strategic roadmap identifying the standards and conformity assessment programs needed to enable the widespread acceptance and deployment of electric vehicles and associated infrastructure in the United States.

"Time is of the essence, and the U.S. standards community must come together to keep up with the fast pace of technological developments," said S. Joe Bhatia, ANSI president and CEO. "We must also keep up with our trading partners who are accelerating their national and regional standardization initiatives, recognizing the enormous opportunity to grow this emerging industry. I encourage all interested parties to take part in this important work and join the EVSP today."

EVSP Plenary Meeting The June 20-21, 2011, plenary meeting of the EVSP will be held at the Atheneum Suites Hotel in Detroit. Interested parties wishing to attend are requested to RSVP by June 10 to evsp@ansi.org. The draft agenda is available here.

Accommodations can be reserved online or by contacting the hotel directly at (313) 962-2323. Please note: there is no dedicated room block for this event.

The decision to form the EVSP was reached at the March 4 meeting of an interim steering committee convened by ANSI in response to suggestions that the U.S. standardization community needs a coordinated approach to keep pace with electric vehicles initiatives moving forward in other parts of the world. The need for the panel was reinforced at the April 5-6 ANSI Workshop: Standards and Codes for Electric Drive Vehicles that looked at standards, codes, conformance and training issues.
