Enabling E-Mobility


The validation of HV storage systems is indispensable during the development process.

How you benefit from IABG during your development process

  • We accompany you during the whole development with the required environmental, safety, abuse, performance, and life cycle tests.
  • We support you in design and evaluation of the storage system in your product.
  • Aggregated services in simulation, failure analysis, and waste management may complete your qualification process.
