The TEC Standards Committee has been charged with the following missions:

  • Identify standardization gaps and opportunities in transportation electrification
  • Promote IEEE transportation electrification standards and standardization efforts through various channels (events, publications, etc.)

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 EV 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.
