The introduction of new electricity storage components such as electric double-layer capacitors or lithium batteries creates the necessity for relevant and reliable standards to assess components’ performance and safety. Technical committees within international standardization bodies such as IEC and ISO have thus increased the intensity of standardization work on the matter. The paper will describe current work on the matter, concentrating on the characteristic action points where standardization work is needed.
