About:Energy revealed a technology demonstrator for battery management systems developed with support from STMicroelectronics.

About:Energy has seamlessly integrated its Voltt battery data with STMicroelectronics’ automotive solutions to enable companies to develop safe, efficient, and cost-effective Battery Management Systems (BMS) in-house.

The offering addresses the time- and cost-intensive BMS development process by combining About:Energy's validated battery data across diverse chemistries with STMicroelectronics' AutoDevKit platform. This streamlines design cycles, protects intellectual property, accelerates BMS prototyping, and provides comprehensive solutions for safety monitoring, efficiency optimisation, state of charge assessment, and fast charging.

The integrated BMS solution demonstrated its capabilities at the Plug and Play EXPO2024 in Stuttgart on 6th June, where it won the Global Innovation Award.

Gavin White, Co-Founder and CEO of About:Energy said: "We are thrilled to collaborate with STMicroelectronics, a renowned leader shaping the future of automotive electronics. By fusing our expertise in battery modelling with their cutting-edge hardware and software, we are empowering companies of all sizes and across industries from electric vehicles, aviation, grid storage and more, to unleash new levels of safety, efficiency and performance in their electrification initiatives.”

STMicroelectronics support BMS technology by combining its automotive solutions with About:Energy's innovative models, enabling companies to transform their electrification visions into reality while safeguarding intellectual property.
