"RouteCharge" - battery exchange system for the development of medium distances for branch deliveries with e-NFZ

The aim of this project is to open up medium distances (300 km) for the transport of goods with electrically driven commercial vehicles and to integrate long-distance supply chains into distribution logistics with electric commercial vehicles. This is intended to broaden the possible range of application of the eNFZ from the fleet operator's point of view, thus achieving further progress in the economic efficiency of the eNFZ. Field tests to date have shown that the vehicles can only be operated within a tight logistical corset - typically as an inner-city distribution vehicle with low tour variance. The aim is therefore to develop and implement a concept that guarantees the fleet operator a freedom of disposition comparable to that of a diesel vehicle. This should improve the economic acceptance of the eNFZ, so that the fleet share of electric vehicles can grow more strongly than before.

Battery changing stations are to be implemented on one main freight transport axis. The charging processes are controlled by the fleet management system to ensure that vehicles requiring battery exchange do not have to wait at the exchange stations.

A key issue of the project is the operating models of the charging stations: a dual-use model is to be developed and tested here, which on the one hand makes control power available on the network side and on the other hand serves as a changing station for eLKW. The dual-use mode significantly changes all previously known TCO calculations and has the potential for a sudden improvement in the economic efficiency of eNFZ. The dual-use mode is to be realized by a distributed agent system, which controls and monitors the grid and vehicle-side capacity provision of the changing stations and its battery systems.
