E-mobility testing

The electrification of the automotive industry

E-mobility is on the rise. The electrification of the automotive industry is happening at a dizzying pace. Due to a combination of environmental legislation, sustainability targets, rising consumer demand and technological advancements. So how can you, as an industry professional, keep up with all these developments?

Because of rising demands, car manufacturers have little choice but to develop new hybrid and full-electric vehicle (EV) models. In the coming years, hundreds of new full-EV models are expected to be launched in Europe alone.This trend is having an impact on the energy grid and charging infrastructure, not to mention on manufacturers of batteries and electrical automotive components.

While vehicle technology advances, consumers are becoming more environmentally aware. Simultaneously, mandatory emission reduction targets force OEMs to introduce more electric vehicles. This adds a whole new dimension to the automotive industry. As a result, the e-mobility trend causes two previously separated worlds to collide: the automotive industry, which uses ISO standards, and the electrical world, where IEC standards are the status quo. At DEKRA, we are uniquely positioned to bridge the gap between those two industries. We not only closely monitor the latest legislative requirements and industry standards, but we actually help with driving you forward. Why is high power charging so important nowadays and what is the role of Plug & Charge? Beat Kreuter explains!

What do we test?

Our main expertise lies in the following e-mobility products:

  • Charging stations
  • Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE)
  • (HV) Plugs, (HV) cables, wiring
  • Battery modules, packs, cells
  • Battery management systems
  • Converters, inverters
  • ECU, ICs
  • E-motors

Which standards do we test?

DEKRA provides testing and certification services for all types of electric vehicle (EVSE) power equipment, including residential and heavy-duty charging stations (such as electric buses and trucks), fast chargers, vehicle-to-grid (V2G) systems, inductive charging systems and interoperability with back-office systems. Such as:

  • IEC 61851 (EMC)
  • ISO 17409
  • ISO 15118-1
  • CHadeMO
  • CharIN
  • OCPP 1.6
  • OCPP 2.0
