New Group Formed to Support Electric Vehicle Industry

The Electrical Vehicle Supply Equipment/Systems Section is only the second section formed by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association in the past decade.

The Rosslyn, Va.-based National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) announced it has formed the Electrical Vehicle Supply Equipment/Systems Section to represent manufacturers of products and assemblies that are installed to safely deliver and manage electrical energy between an electric vehicle and an electrical source. Interoperable equipment is one aim of the section, which will develop positions for codes and standards by aligning the strengths of stakeholders that include auto manufacturers, utilities, and government, according to NEMA.

"As the hub of electrical manufacturing innovation, NEMA is proud to announce a section that will drive business and advancements in technology through global strategies for an electric vehicle supply equipment sector," said NEMA President and CEO Evan R. Gaddis. "NEMA supports the development of the EVSE industry and leads efforts to educate the market on the values and features of EVSE infrastructure around the world."

This is only the second section NEMA has created in the past decade. "This NEMA section will drive the cohesive efforts of the products and services involved with the electric vehicle supply system," said Michael Mahan, EVSES Section chair and GE global product manager. "It will facilitate standardization and communicate the role EVSE plays in the electric vehicle infrastructure."
