This document describes existing standards and standards under development relevant to electric vehicle battery performance, degradation and lifetime. It identifies measuring and testing methods to be used in the compliance assessment of electric vehicle batteries in order to meet Ecodesign requirements. Additionally, gaps and needs not covered by existing standards are identified. Standards at both European and international level have been analysed, aiming at assessing the feasibility of an Ecodesign proposal including specific requirements for this product group.
