Batteries and battery management systems are essential support elements for all types of solar-powered equipment. As such, they can be employed in a variety of markets and applications – from future electric vehicles to street lighting. Their main purpose and toughest challenge is to provide reliable long-term service to the equipment they support. Solar-powered, off-grid street lighting has been identified as a demanding application in need of an upgrade. The ENIAC JU project BattMan will therefore develop and validate a new approach in a challenging solar-powered offgrid lighting system.
