CEN-CENELEC FOCUS GROUP ON EUROPEAN ELECTRO MOBILITY
Going-Electric is part of the CEN-CENELEC Focus Group on Electro Mobility, in charge of electric vehicle charging standardization. The mission of this group is to define the future standards for the infrastructure needed to be able to safely charge electric vehicles and exchange their batteries all over Europe.
Going-Electric's main objective in this Group is to ensure that the primary need of electric vehicle users is not overlooked: being able to safely charge on a domestic socket.
CENELEC, the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization is a non-profit technical organization set up under Belgian law and composed of the National Electrotechnical Committees of 31 European countries. In addition, 11 National Committees from neighbouring countries are participating in CENELEC work with an Affiliate status.
CENELEC members have been working together in the interests of European harmonization since the 1950s, creating both standards requested by the market and harmonized standards in support of European legislation and which have helped to shape the European Internal Market.
CENELEC works with 15,000 technical experts from 31 European countries. Its work directly increases market potential, encourages technological development and guarantees the safety and health of consumers and workers.
CENELEC’s mission is to prepare voluntary electrotechnical standards that help develop the Single European Market/European Economic Area for electrical and electronic goods and services removing barriers to trade, creating new markets and cutting compliance costs.
