Dear Battery Expert!
The challenges to build up a highly scaled, sustainable and efficient battery ecosystem and circular economy are manyfold. In addition, in the current phase of critical market development the timeframe for innovations, business and strategic decisions and actions are becoming more and more dynamic. Digital tools hold the promises to accelerate innovations and to help achieving this enormous task more efficiently, smarter and faster. However, these tools require an extensive database. The creation of an overarching data, information and knowledge platform with regard to digitalisation in battery technology might thus accelerate battery development with many actors and partners, make battery production more resource-efficient, effective and enable safe battery use and effective recycling.
The Project „BatterieDigital“
In this context several Fraunhofer Institutes are addressing the challenges and opportunities of establishing a federated data space across the entire development and life cycle of electrical battery storage systems (today mainly lithium-ion batteries LIB) within the Fraunhofer internal project „BatterieDigital“. A federated data space here means a system of decentrally (jointly) organised databases whose data stock is made accessible by metadata and semantically linked (via a knowledge graph). Data sovereignty always remains with the owners of the data and digital tools (e.g. algorithms), The use and exchange of data and tools is negotiated among the actors.
Target of the online survey
The goal of this survey is to more broadly understand the current expectations and needs of the battery community with respect to a Battery Digital Data Space (BDDS). The survey is structured along the following blocks:
(1) Initial questions (to align needs along the battery value chain and stakeholders)
(2) Offers for the use of digital data which are known (to understand the status quo)
(3) Offers for the use of digital data which are needed (to understand the target)
(4) Financing conditions of external data and databases (to understand the benefit)
(5) Legal and other frame conditions (to understand modalities to set up a BDDS)
The participation is voluntary. The survey should take no longer than 20 minutes. All your data and responses remain strictly confidential and are anonymous, so that they cannot be traced back to you.
To thank all participants for their participation in the survey we plan to publish the main results of the survey on the website xxx in the next few month (until around April 2023).
The entire Fraunhofer „Batterie Digital“ Team highly appreciates your input!
