The Summit gathered individuals, organizations and agencies to develop a common knowledge to ensure that the fire and electrical safety standards that impact electric vehicles and their supporting infrastructure will not serve as a barrier to their deployment. As a result, the information considered throughout the summit led to the identification of the three action plan considerations. They are: vehicle charging infrastructure; battery hazards identification and protection; and training for emergency responders and enforcement officials.
Plans for a similar follow-up summit are currently under consideration.
