SWOBBEE becomes a mem­ber of the Swa­pable Bat­ter­ies Motor­cy­cle Con­sor­tium (SBMC)

Berlin-based green tech start­up Swobbee is a new mem­ber of the Swap­pable Bat­ter­ies Motor­cy­cle Con­sor­tium (SBMC). Estab­lished in 2021, this inter­na­tion­al bat­tery con­sor­tium aims to pro­mote com­mon indus­tri­al spec­i­fi­ca­tions to accred­it­ed pub­lic stan­dards bod­ies to devel­op glob­al stan­dards for elec­tric motor­cy­cles and light elec­tric vehi­cles. This makes small elec­tric vehi­cle bat­ter­ies more eco­nom­i­cal and resource-sav­ing, and — even more impor­tant­ly — increas­es cus­tomer com­fort at the same time. It is also anoth­er step towards cre­at­ing an effi­cient and sus­tain­able bat­tery swap infra­struc­ture. Swobbee will active­ly sup­port this process in the com­ing years with its spe­cial expe­ri­ence in the devel­op­ment of exchange­able bat­ter­ies and intel­li­gent exchange stations.

Swobbee is the world’s first mul­ti-ven­dor bat­tery swap infra­struc­ture with a mul­ti-modal approach for the entire micro­mo­bil­i­ty sector.The Berlin-based Bat­tery-as-a-Ser­vice pio­neers emerged from the com­pa­ny Green­Pack, which has devel­oped a stan­dard­ized portable bat­tery that is already being used in numer­ous small elec­tric vehi­cles and oth­er elec­tric­i­ty-based appli­ca­tions. Tobias Brey­er, Head of Mar­ket­ing and co-founder of Swobbee, explains, “We are con­vinced that our many years of prac­ti­cal expe­ri­ence in the areas of bat­tery swap infra­struc­ture and sys­tem con­fig­u­ra­tion of bat­tery tech­nol­o­gy will enable us to make a valu­able con­tri­bu­tion to the devel­op­ment of a per­for­mance bat­tery that is com­pat­i­ble with a wide range of vehicles.”
