UL Solutions opens Illinois EV charging laboratory

The facility will supply EV charging OEMs and their suppliers with shorter development cycles.

UL Solutions has officially opened its North America Advanced Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging Laboratory in Northbrook, Illinois. The company says the facility will help enable EV charging original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their suppliers with shorter development cycles, faster time-to-market and the ability to be more competitive in the global marketplace.

Adjacent to UL Solutions’ global headquarters, the facility has capabilities for Level 1 and Level 2 alternating current (AC) EV chargers, direct current (DC) fast chargers and grid connectivity testing for vehicle-to-grid and distributed energy resources. It also features vehicle simulation equipment and a chamber to test EV chargers in various environmental conditions.

At the new facility, UL Solutions will offer testing services for AC and DC EV chargers for passenger and light commercial vehicles, vehicle-to-grid connectivity and personnel protection equipment:
