Leveraging Self-Sovereign Digital Twins in the Battery Lifecycle
Our members create battery parts, incorporate batteries in their products, and sell them globally along with various value-added services. MOBI and our members support initiatives by regulatory agencies, such as the EU Battery Directive, to improve the life cycle of batteries and spur circular business model innovation. We believe the directive will transform not only the European but global battery industry. Similar regulation will likely follow in other major markets. In 2018, MOBI released MOBI VID Standard (a vehicle’s Self-Sovereign Digital Twin), the first W3C compliant vehicle identity that can be anchored on a blockchain or similar tamper-evident environment. Beginning in mid-2020, we began to create a new and much-needed Battery Identity Standard and the issuance of battery birth certificates to support subsequent battery tracking, measurement, and management.
