What is the fire risk when charging an EV?

It is necessary to consider two aspects of EV charging fire protection: the charging station and the battery storage system inside the EV itself. Typically, fires originate from either of these two areas.

Electric vehicle charging stations ( Lvl1,2,3) all consist of a charger, a cable, and a connector that connects to the vehicle.

With hundreds of thousands, and eventually millions, of EV charging stations expected, failures and fires are inevitable and hence the requirements for safety standards with a particular emphasis on protecting against a fire. In response to these risks, fire authorities including QFES have recommended that buildings with electric vehicle charging or parking be considered special hazards under NCC Clause E1.10.

EV charging stations in buildings:

QFES asks building certifiers to consider the following items under NCC Part E1.10 when considering Building Development Applications (BDA):

  • Emergency shutdown controls for EV charging stations
  • Block plans for building to include location of EV charging stations
  • Block plans for building to include location of EV distribution boards and EV emergency shutdown controls
  • Vehicle impact protection (e.g.bollards) for EV charging stations.
