Ensuring safety, security and sustainability in the e-mobility and energy transition

Thanks for visiting us at Power2Drive Europe

As the EV market continues to grow in Europe, interesting topics on the rise are Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) technology and cyber security for EV charging stations. V2G technology enables EVs to exchange energy with the power grid, providing benefits for both individual drivers and businesses/utilities providers.

To ensure the safe, secure and sustainable growth of the electric vehicle (EV) industry, DEKRA provides extensive services to support the complete energy and e-mobility transition. DEKRA offers the first cybersecurity seal for the EV charging stations. We created a comprehensive test to ensure safe and secure communication between EVs, charging stations, and charge point operators. This end-to-end testing covers a wide range of EV supply equipment, including cables and plugs.
Furthermore, we conduct extensive testing, inspection and certification for end products, product components, batteries and energy storage systems. Industrial safety solutions and their Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) can be tested to ensure the safety of the cell, module, installation, or system as a whole. On top of all of this, we can help you get an extra competitive advantage with our global market access services and our hero product certification mark DEKRA Mark .

Vehicle to Grid integration

Vehicle to Grid (V2G) technology is a system that enables electric vehicles to exchange energy with the power grid. This allows the vehicle's stored energy to be sent back to the grid and vice versa. The system can be operated manually or automatically, and it provides benefits for both individual drivers and businesses/utilities providers. For example, drivers can access lower rates for electricity during off-peak hours, check their battery life, and access renewable energy sources more easily. V2G also enables businesses to reduce their environmental impact by accessing renewable energy sources with fewer emissions. Utilities providers benefit from having additional storage capacity to manage electrical demand during peak times.

Cybersecurity for EV chargers

DEKRA has developed the world's first cybersecurity certification program for EV charging stations to ensure a secure EV charging experience for users. EV charging stations are potential targets for cyber-attacks, which can have a significant impact on energy and transportation infrastructure, user privacy, and the charger itself. The cybersecurity certification program helps address security threats by implementing solutions such as securing access to the device, protecting access to configuration and firmware, and safeguarding against software vulnerabilities.
