Certification for EV infrastructure

Electric Vehicle (EV) chargers are rapidly increasing as the EV demand rises. Globally, the EV charging infrastructure industry is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 46.8 percent from 2017 to 2025, reaching $45.59 billion in revenue by 2025. Source. UL customers can help fuel this demand by developing EV infrastructure components that meet emerging standards for safety and performance, as well as interoperability with smart grid technologies.

UL currently offers certification for EV infrastructure components, including:
