Responding to the surge of investment in infrastructure to charge the batteries of electric vehicles, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has formed the Electrical Vehicle Supply Equipment/Systems Section (EVSES). The group will “represent manufacturers of products or assemblies that are installed for the purpose of safely delivering and managing electrical energy between an electric vehicle and an electrical source,” the association said. EVSES is only the second new section NEMA has formed in the past decade.

“This NEMA section will drive the cohesive efforts of the products and services involved with the electric vehicle supply system,” said Michael Mahan, EVSES Section Chair and GE Global Product Manager. “It will facilitate standardization and communicate the role EVSE plays in the electric vehicle infrastructure.”
