SGS Looks at the Issue of EV Charging to Help Manufacturers Successfully Access Global Markets

SGS, the world’s leading testing, inspection and certification company, has published a Consumer Compact article looking at the issues surrounding electric vehicles (EV) and the solutions available to manufacturers.

By 2040, some estimates suggest that 100% of new passenger vehicle sales will be EV. What could contribute to holding this back is the need for an effective EV charging network. Issues include coverage, housing association attitudes to EV changing, difficulties with street charging and the multiple different, non-compatible charging devices that are available.

The key to an effective EV transport system is the quality of the charging device. They must meet recognized standards for a variety of parameters, including anti-corrosion, dust tightness and UV protection.

SGS’s Consumer Compact article looks at the challenges involved in testing and certifying EV chargers. It considers the issues surrounding a move to EVs and the testing solutions available to manufacturers.
