New international interest group to promote harmonized electromobility data standards

22 October 2012

Hubject GmbH, a joint venture formed by BMW Group, Bosch, Daimler, EnBW, RWE and Siemens earlier this year, and eighteen other companies have formed the “eMobility ICT Interoperability Interest Group”—an international interest group to promote harmonized electromobility data standards. These would support, for example, integrated charging infrastructures and the easier provision of supplementary services.

Electric cars will become more integrated into the intelligent traffic infrastructure and energy networks of the future than conventional combustion engines, with modern Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) forming the backbone for the integration of electric vehicles into these networks, the partners note. The cooperation between as many service providers as possible provides the foundation needed to ensure a standardized data exchange between all players and to reduce barriers for the users.

In the emerging electromobility market common standards are needed. From our point of view the formation of the eMobility ICT Interoperability Interest Group marks a milestone in the development of a functioning and complete electromobility system.

—Andreas Pfeiffer, Managing Director of Hubject GmbH

Over the last years significant progress has been achieved in this field in a range of research projects across Europe. The diverse range of services that have emerged from these projects now need to be connected on a global level to ensure that electromobility can be established as a sustainable alternative to conventional combustion engines.

The eMobility ICT Interoperability Interest Group—a joint initiative by leading electromobility companies seeks to enable interoperable international services by harmonizing current and future data standards. Harmonized standards and a diverse service offering in the global market will make it easy and attractive to use electromobility.

Companies involved in the eMobility ICT Interoperability Interest Group include: Betterplace; Bayerische Motoren Werke Aktiengesellschaft; Bosch Software Innovations GmbH; Coulomb Technologies Inc.; Daimler AG; e-laad; EnBW Operations GmbH; ENEL Distribuzione; ESB; EValu8 Transport Innovations Limited; Fitsa; Green eMotion Project; Hubject GmbH; IBM Deutschland GmbH; INTELI - Inteligência em Inovação (MOBI.E); Renault; SAP; Siemens - Aktiengesellschaft; and smartlab Innovationsgesellschaft GmbH.

Hubject GmbH is a joint venture formed by the BMW Group, Bosch, Daimler, EnBW, RWE and Siemens based in Berlin. The company is developing a cross-industry data platform connecting infrastructure, service and mobility providers.

In France recently, the Caisse des Dépôts investor group; Électricité Réseau Distribution France (ERDF), the manager of electricity distribution to 95% of the metropolitan area in France; PSA Peugeot-Citroën; and Renault signed a memorandum of understanding on the creation of a common framework to develop roaming services for recharging plug-in vehicles in France.
