Automakers Commit to Electric Vehicle Charging Standards – Newsweek
Standards help streamline life. They ensure that nutrition labels are on food, tap water is drinkable, and electrical sockets are all the same voltage within a country.
The auto industry is not immune to standards. Several regulating bodies, including the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are working to standardize how public charges its electric vehicles (EVs) in the same way gas stations and gas pumps are standardized.
The National Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Standards and Requirements is a series of rules made by the FWHA initiated by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. It's one part of the equation.
The Society of Automotive Engineers, SAE, also sets standards. The organization works with current and emerging technologies to create non-binding rule making across the globe.
