At present, the charging station standards in Southeast Asian countries are mainly based on China’s GB and Europe’s CCS2. Some countries have explicitly proposed that charging stations for medium and large electric vehicles need to include chargers according to China’s GB standards.
The State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMC) of China has issued the highly anticipated National Standard Announcement No. 9 of 2023, announcing the approval of a series of new electric vehicle charging standards. These standards are not isolated products, but originate from the electric vehicle (EV) charging interface technology standard jointly developed and developed by multiple countries such as China, Japan, and Germany, named “ChaoJi” (Super). This pinyin naming reflects China’s leading position and close cooperation with countries such as Japan and Germany.
At present, there are five main international charging station standards, namely: Chinese National Standard GB/T, CCS1 American Standard (combo/Type 1), CCS2 European Standard (combo/Type 2), Japanese Standard CHAdeMO, and Chaoji charging port.
