USA: Fast-Charging “Combo” Coupler Standard Published by SAE

A new technical standard for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) and electric vehicles (EV) has been approved and just published today by SAE International, “a global association of more than 133,000 engineers and related technical experts in the aerospace, automotive and commercial-vehicle industries.” The SAE International standard is a huge step forward for EV and PHEV charging.

“Developed in a consensus environment by more than 190 global experts representing automotive, charging equipment, utilities industries and national labs, ‘J1772™: SAE Electric Vehicle and Plug in Hybrid Electric Vehicle Conductive Charge Couple‘ enable charging time to be reduced from as long as eight hours to as short as 20 minutes,” a news release on the new standard stated.

“The standard represents the future of charging technology and smart grid interaction, while addressing the needs of today. Such needs include reduced times at public charging stations, enabling consumers to travel greater distances in their PHEV’s and EV’s.”

There are a handful of big steps that we need to take in order to find ourselves in an EV-abundant world, and developing better, mass manufactured charging stations is arguably one of them. It’s exciting to see so many talented people working together to help move this side of things forward.
