IEEE Standards Association

The IEEE Standards Association is a leading organization in the arena of standards development. In our effort to build and mature Transportation Electrification standards we hope to promote, nurture, develop, and advance global technologies which are transportation related. Our work drives the functionality, capabilities, and interoperability of a wide range of products and services that transform the way people live, work and communicate.


What are Standards?

Standards are published documents that establish specifications and procedures designed to maximize the reliability of the materials, products, methods, and/or services people use every day. Standards address a range of issues, including but not limited to various protocols to help maximize product functionality and compatibility, facilitate interoperability and support consumer safety and public health.

Standards form the fundamental building blocks for product development by establishing consistent protocols that can be universally understood and adopted. This helps fuel compatibility and interoperability and simplifies product development, and speeds time-to-market. Standards also make it easier to understand and compare competing products. As standards are globally adopted and applied in many markets, they also fuel international trade.

It is only through the use of standards that the requirements of interconnectivity and interoperability can be assured. It is only through the application of standards that the credibility of new products and new markets can be verified. In summary standards fuel the development and implementation of technologies that influence and transform the way we live, work and communicate.


IEEE Standardization Efforts in Transportation Electrification

Call for Participation

IEEE Standards Association Working Group P2030.13
You are invited to join the IEEE Standards Association Working Group P2030.13 developing a Guide for Electric Transportation Fast Charging Station Management System Functional Specification. The Working Group is seeking members that are experts in power electronics and power systems to help develop the functional specification of a charging station incorporating local energy resources and storage and capable of charging a number of large trucks and buses. Fast charging stations are receiving increased attention in the context of the energy transition and in efforts to decarbonize the long-haul heavy transportation infrastructure through the electrification of highways. They are a key element in deploying a high-power truck and bus charging infrastructure. 

The working group is sponsored by the IEEE Power and Energy Society and its Transmission and Distribution Committee. The purpose of the guide is to assist electric transportation system owners and operators, vendors, and consultants to specify and configure fast-charging station control systems. It describes approaches to integrate stations in distribution system planning and operation, for use by distribution system operators. The Project Authorization Request (PAR) can be found at
