The Switzerland Innovation Park Biel/Bienne (SIPBB) supports start-ups in the development of marketable products. The Swiss Battery Technology Center brings a unique mix of experts from research and development.
The team consists of engineers and technicians covering a wide field from design, engineering, simulation to AI and machine learning. This allows modern technologies such as li-ion batteries, advanced sensors, blockchain, 5G or AI to be integrated into the products.
The new building of the Switzerland Innovation Park Biel/Bienne serves to test and optimize modern storage technologies. The building contains a state-of-the-art battery storage and a compressed air storage, which is used for sector coupling with the heating and cooling system.
Old batteries must be recycled in such a way that the reusable materials can be added back to the product cycle. Batteries from electric vehicles contain high voltages and during the course of use, toxic gases can be produced within the battery. The SBTC develops solutions for the demanufacturing of battery packs and supports the planning of digital solutions to monitor the entire recycling process.
- Electrical and mechanical battery system design with integration of thermal management for high and low voltage battery systems.
- Support and advice on the risk analysis of the entire system and the necessary measures for mechanics, electrics and electronics as well as fire protection.
- Implementation of the storage systems into a complete system, like a vehicle for special markets such as commercial vehicles or urban mobility.
- Creation of digital twins of the battery or the overall application and evaluation of the data with Machine Learning and AI
