EELECTRIC MOBILITY NEEDS EXPERTS
DEKRA, the globally active organisation of experts, under the coordination of the DEKRA Competence Center Elektromobilität in Stuttgart, has given much thought to the complex issue of electric mobility. In this fi eld, DEKRA is involved in the areas of homologation, product safety, standardisation, fi eld tests, crash tests, certification and training. DEKRA provides for charging station infrastructure safety - for example with its DEKRA certifi cate it launched in 2012 the fi rst independent testing and certification standard specifi cally designed for e-mobility charging stations. The homologation and testing experts at the DEKRA Automobile Test Center have years of experience in examining and assessing components, systems and vehicles. They test electric and hybrid vehicles in accordance with national and international standards. At the DEKRA Crash Test Center, electric and hybrid vehicles have been tested for years, in addition to conventionally powered vehicles. In the area of education and training, DEKRA developed a detailed training concept for work on high-voltage vehicles. In addition, DEKRA has always committed its activities to making electric mobility safer - for example by developing safety standards as a member of the National Platform for E-Mobility (NPE), or by conducting research together with various partners. It is also the offi cial technology partner of Formula Student Electric, a competition for electrically powered race cars, where DEKRA contributes its racing and e-mobility expertise.
