e-Mobility Infrastructure

Ensure the quality, safety and interoperability of your charging infrastructure

What does E-mobility infrastructure mean?

E-Mobility infrastructure refers to the charging infrastructure and connectors needed for new energy vehicles. The widespread adoption of e-Mobility can only be achieved by having safe, reliable and convenient charging infrastructure in place. This is a major factor in consumer acceptance. Modern energy grids can provide the electricity. The key is making this supply safe, convenient and compatible.

Why are e-mobility infrastructure services important?

Manufacturers of charging infrastructure and connectors are developing equipment based on new technologies that require extensive testing and certification to relevant standards by an independent party. There are several benefits delivered by specific e-mobility infrastructure Services:

  • Ensure your products meet international standards, as wells as market and regulatory requirements for safety and Quality
  • Improve your design based on relevant testing results and avoid costly rework in the end
  • Achieve compliance with relevant requirements to enter global markets for new energy vehicles
  • Ensure compatibility of your technology and products with local electricity supply

TÜV SÜD supports you in testing and certifying your charging infrastructure

Working side by side with companies and local authorities worldwide, TÜV SÜD is laying the foundation for battery-charging infrastructure. We have decades of experience in testing and certifying conventional filling stations. Now we are using this experience to help establish global electric vehicle industry safety standards.

Our team of multidisciplinary experts leverages extensive expertise in the areas of automotive, infrastructure, battery and alternative energy concepts to help top industry players develop and test e-Mobility technologies. Our experts provide the full range of services for electric vehicle charging infrastructure and systems. From site assessment and selection to the initial testing and certification of charging units, as well as on-site commissioning inspection after installation.

With our globally accredited laboratories (DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025) we assist you in testing your products and overcoming existing challenges.

TÜV SÜD services for E-mobility infrastructure

TÜV SÜD provides testing and certification of charging infrastructure, including charging stations, connectors and electrical components for:

  • AC charging poles and wall boxes
  • DC charging stations (CHAdeMO and CCS)
  • Inductive charging systems

We provide the following services for charging infrastructure:

Advisory services

  • Site selection advisory for charging station operators of AC, DC or inductive charging:  We investigate the local grid conditions and issue grid compatibility documents for public authorities, subsequent to performing grid simulations (for larger installations i.e. 10 spots in line).

  • International compliance advisory for manufacturers of electrical charging units

  • Advisory on vehicle and charging station interoperability

  • Advisory for government authorities and grid operators on feedback effects of battery charging units on the local power grid

Testing and certification

  • Testing of the charging station and components, e.g. according to the standards IEC 61982, IEC 62133, IEC 62196, IEC 61851, IEC 61851-1, -21, -22, -23, IEC 61850, IEC 60950, SAE J2929, SAE J2464, SAE J2894, SAE J1772 and SAE J2293.

  • Compliance certification of the charging station and components to national and international standards (e.g. CE Mark or UL Mark)

  • Inspection

  • Periodic inspection of the charging station
