Germany: Leading market for electromobility – The market launch phase of electromobility has begun.

The EmoStar²K collaborative project led by DIN, DKE (VDE) and NAAutomobil (VDA) is helping to achieve this goal by executing coordinated and suitable measures in standards work on electromobility.

Sub-project to examine different concepts of protection in connection with DC charging


Examination of different concepts of protection in electromobility in connection with low-voltage DC charging


To make up for the lack of comprehensive analyses of consumer protection objectives and provisions to ensure these are met, safety requirements are being evaluated in a sub-project that began on 15.03.2017. This requires extensive studies based on existing safety philosophies and the specific requirements necessitated by their practical application.


The project will involve studies monitoring standards activities. The findings will be used to identify safety requirements that are needed in connection with low-voltage DC charging but that cannot be delivered within the standardization process itself.

Existing national and international concepts of protection relating to low-voltage charging of electric vehicles in the context of electromobility will be compared with actual needs in practice, and will be subsequently evaluated. The results will then be handed over to standards committee DKE/K 353 “Electric road vehicles”, as the subject is particularly relevant to the scope of its work. In addition, other standards committees involved in developing, modifying and/or adding content to safety standards will be kept informed of the findings.
