MobileBattery can boost EV range and provide home back-up power

Nomadic Power BMW i3

Germany-based Nomadic Power has received a €2-million grant from the European Commission for its MobileBattery system, which features a trailer-mounted battery pack that can be towed behind an EV to boost range, and also serve as a residential back-up power source when stationary.

The Nomad mobile battery comes in several sizes, with capacities from 40 to 85 kWh. According to the company, an 85 kWh Nomad can add about 373 miles of range to a small electric car.

The Nomad battery, or Mobile Energy System, is controlled by an energy management software system that can also interface with a home photovoltaic installation. All system components are connected to the Nomadic Power Secure Cloud Platform, which connects the smart energy managers in the home and the Nomad, and allows 4G/LTE access from the user and/or Nomadic Power’s service team.

“Nomadic Power has developed a simple and efficient solution to extend the range of battery-powered electric vehicles,” said CEO Dr. Manfred Baumgaertner. “We see a strong future in electricity-powered mobility and an increasing use of renewable energy, photovoltaic power in particular. Our mobile batteries have great potential in these markets that recently got a significant shot in the arm by Tesla’s announcements.”
