In view of the importance of ICT as the key to the success of electric mobility, the BMWi initiated the series of “ICT for Electromobility” funding programmes in 2009. With the 3rd technology programme, the BMWi is focussing on electric mobility for commercial use. The primary objective of the new funding programme is to identify economically viable applications of electric mobility in the commercial vehicle segment and to help them achieve a breakthrough. The programme focus is on development of electric vehicles and their drives through an integrated approach following ICT-based, holistic logistics, energy management and mobility concepts. To this end, suitable technologies are to be developed in the projects and tested in practical use. The research work of the funded projects focuses on three main topics: 

 • Logistics: electric commercial vehicles and passenger cars for commercial use 

 • Energy: Integration of commercial electric mobility in energy networks and smart grids 

 • Mobility: Intelligent integration in holistic mobility, platform and logistics concepts in connection with new vehicle technology 

In order to do justice to electric mobility as an overall system, the programme encourages working on across projects in the sense of a systemic approach.
