One of the main targets of iModbatt is to increase the BP energy density by minimizing its weight. Alternative mechanical attachments between modules are proposed and conductive layers used to minimize wiring. Thermoplastic material is added to lower the weight of the cooling system and a main light cooling system independent from the vehicle is developed.
The second important target focuses on automated BP industrial manufacturing by an assembly unit designed within the project.
BP design is led by European industry and ruled by eco design recommendations and smart recyclability based on cell status check is implemented.
Final validation is accomplished at laboratory, in a Renault Zoe EV and an e.Go Life LEV. Additionally to this main goal the second use and reuse scenarios are validated in a stationary energy storage application.
