First electric vehicle charging stations tested at PTB

PTBnews 2.2019

In 2018, PTB issued the first type-examination certificate for electric vehicle charging stations. This confirms that the stations meet all of the requirements of the measuring and verification legislation of Germany and not only guarantee exact measurements, but also a charging process that is transparent and comprehensible to the customers. This system also states explicitly when, where and how much energy was charged; the subsequent bill is based on these data. PTB, as the currently only conformity assessment body for the field of electromobility, has developed an assessment procedure for charging stations and is actively assisting the German Federal Government's national development plan for electromobility in its work.
