Intelligent platform for e-mobility and networking of energy information

As part of a publicly funded project, BatterieIngenieure GmbH is working as part of a consortium on the conceptual design and development of an intelligent platform for the optimal coupling of the mobility and energy sectors.

The coupling of the energy sector with the mobility sector, in particular the load traffic, aimed at in the context of this project, optimizes both sectors in the sense of the energy turnaround and thus under the objective of “decarbonization through the use of renewable energies”. To this end, suitable zones for the formation of energy quarters will first be identified, taking into account not only the energy sector but also the requirements of logistics service providers for the charging infrastructure to be implemented. The expansion of this infrastructure as well as an optimal dimensioning of the neighborhood storage allow an improved utilization of the local supply of renewable energies. On the mobility sector side, an analysis and evaluation of the use of e-trucks and e-vans will first be carried out, taking into account logistical, ecological, economic scenarios and boundary conditions, followed by the determination of the optimal degree of electrification in load transport. Finally, the development of a data-based platform and a context-based application will enable mediation between energy supply and demand (energy information) as well as real-time planning of charging cycles, times and locations. In this way, the research project is intended to contribute to the ecological and economic design of electromobility, in particular of load transport, and sustainable neighborhood formation, as well as the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions through the integration of regenerative energy sources and storage technologies. The prototypical implementation in the project is to show exemplary synergetic potentials, especially at the location NRW, and to form a building block for a smart mobility (Mobility 4.0).

This project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). The project started in October 2019 and will end on schedule in September 2022.
