Powering the future of the automotive industry with clean energy   

As the EV industry grows, the global EV charging infrastructure is expected to have grown at a compound annual rate of 46.8% from 2017 to 2025, reaching $45.59 billion (USD) in revenue by 2025.1 But the clean energy future of mobility and its charging infrastructure will not truly succeed without the customers’ and stakeholders’ trust that EV supply equipment (EVSE) and EV chargers have been tested for safety, performance and interoperability with grid-tied applications.

UL Solutions supports the growing EV industry by offering comprehensive safety, security and performance testing and certification services for the electric vehicle (EV) systems and electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) supply chains.
