Background & Policy context

Electric mobility applies to very different kinds of sectors, use cases and vehicle categories, including forklifts, light vehicles, sweepers or motorboats. In order to handle different types of vehicles with an electric drive train, a large number of different energy storage devices are still needed. This keeps system costs high and thus constitutes a barrier to innovation and market development.


The aim of the project is to create a demonstrator for standardized battery modules for mobile applications and stationary storage (e. g. for residential buildings). As a result, this is to be converted into a standard in order to exploit synergy effects, reduce costs, conserve resources and make the technology accessible to a large number of manufacturers and users.


To achieve the BaSyMo project’s objectives the different work packages pursue the following tasks:

  • Explore the basic usability features of the modules, analyse the impacts of charging and safety concepts on usability and definition of the requirements to design;
  • assembly of a simplified functional prototype;
  • assessment of the design concept and derivation of recommendations including electrical and mechanical interfaces based on various test cycles concerning usability, safety and environmental issues;

 Of high relevance for the design and development work in the project is the consideration of existing norms and standards, as well as the contribution to international standards conventions.
