Econnect – Smart Farm(cility): electric mobility in agriculture
Vehicle and battery concept for agricultural machines
On behalf of John Deere, B.A.U.M. prepared several studies for the project Smart Farm(cility) within the framework of the funding programme „econnect Germany“. These studies contributed to the development of a mild hybrid tractor with an easily exchangeable Li-Ion battery. Furthermore, B.A.U.M. supported public relations work of the project.
Within the framework of „econnect Germany“, the overall aim of Smart Farm(cility) was to develop a mild hybrid tractor with an easily exchangeable Li-Ion battery. Through a stationary bi-directional interface (battery charging station) the battery is charged with locally generated electricity from renewable energy sources and provides network services.
- Development of a study on legal requirements for renewable energies
- Support for the creation of requirement and function specifications
- Preparation of a study about grid integration
- Drafting of reports and publications
Tractors with emission level 3A can easily operate in a climate-friendly manner with decentrally produced and purified vegetable oil. A wide range of different oils can be used as fuel. The principle feasibility of emission levels 3B and 4 has been proven. read more
On behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy, B.A.U.M. coordinated the ancillary research of the funding programme “ICT for electric mobility”. In the framework of this programme, seven pilot projects examined technologies and services for the integration of electric mobility in energy and transport networks. read more
15 partners from five countries of the Alpine Space carried out 13 pilot projects testing and demonstrating how mobility could enter the solar age. B.A.U.M. coordinated the EU project CO2NeuTrAlp. read more
