BVB INNOVATE – Innovation at Work

Innovation at work

BVB INNOVATE supports technology companies in technology development and financing of innovation projects.

Projects initiated or carried out by BVB INNOVATE have won numerous prizes, e.g. the European Satellite Navigtion Competition. Some are lighthouse projects supported by the German government (DriveBattery2015).

Battery buffered DC rapid chargers

BVB INNOVATE develops battery buffered DC rapid chargers. Battery buffered systems enable rapid charging without medium voltage grid access. The systems can also be used as mobile rapid chargers – providing electric energy wherever it is needed. Thus e-vehicles and e-vehicle fleets can be charged anywhere.

Octopus charging clusters for electric vehicles

BVB INNOVATE has developed charge columns for charging up to 8 electric vehicles in parallel. This enables cost efficient roll-out of charging infrastructure on corporate and residential car parks. Users appreciate easy handling without an extra charging cable. Currently, BVB INNOVATE extends the Octopus system to DC charging from on-site PV car park covers or buffer batteries.

Mobile Rapid Chargers



BVB INNOVATE has gained more than eight years’ experience in developing charging infrastructure and battery systems from numerous projects with partners such as Audi, Infineon, VW, Deutsche ACCUmotive, Fraunhofer IPA or the Technical University of Munich.
