TWAICE Vision Summit 2024 Report

Battery Software in the spotlight

Software is vital for the future of batteries: Economic efficiency and sustainability in the battery sector are closely linked to software. During the TWAICE Vision Summit industry experts shared their knowledge on these topics:

  • David Howey (University of Oxford) emphasized the value of battery models for insights into battery understanding, design, and usage, highlighting the need for standardization in the industry.
  • Sophie Solchenbach (BMW) discussed BMW’s R&D cell research, regarding lithium plating during fast charging due to electrolyte motion.
  • Susan Babinec (Argonne National Laboratory) introduced the Rapid Operational Validation Initiative (ROVI) aiming for a 15x reduction in time from lab to market to meet 2035 US Decarbonization Goals.
  • Miguel Gfall (BayWa r.e.) stressed the importance of monitoring for process optimization and analytics in BESS installations, with a focus on safety.
  • Lakshmi Srinivasan (EPRI) reported that most BESS failures occur in the first year, advocating for industry collaboration on safety.
  • Quentin Scrimshire (Modo Energy) highlighted the significance of availability in energy markets, particularly in ERCOT, and its impact on revenues.
  • Thomas Raffeiner (The Mobility House) predicted the VGI/flexibility market to surpass the automotive & oil/gas industry, emphasizing the potential of EV batteries for flexibility.
  • Richard Mohr (ChargePoint) pointed out that with EVs battery health is a critical factor for vehicle performance and management.
