AVL Digital Battery Passport

The only fully operational digital battery passport solution in a productive battery environment.


Circular economy and in particular sustainable battery solutions gain focus of the global authorities and rule making. Coming into force in 2027, the EU battery passport regulation sets new reporting requirements for all electric vehicles and industrial batteries larger than 2kWh, regardless of the origin of the battery. The party placing the battery on the market is responsible to ensure all required data is entered into a digital record, accurate and up to date.

The AVL Digital Battery Passport combines a secure data platform with our extensive knowledge in legislation and CO2 engineering. It is designed to facilitate seamless data sharing throughout the entire battery value chain, ensuring efficient integration, tracking, analysis, and reporting of relevant battery data at every stage of its lifecycle.

All batteries sold or used in the EU must meet defined sustainability requirements. Provisions include:

  • Restrictions on use of hazardous substances 
  • Introduction of carbon footprint rules
  • Various requirements for the use of recycled content and extended producer responsibilities
The EU Sustainable Batteries Regulation


Carbon footprint must be 3rd party verified and publicly accessible.


Mandatory digital battery passport for batteries larger 2kWh.


Maximum lifecycle carbon footprint for industrial batteries.


Digital product passport required for intermediate and end-use products required.


Minimum recycling level for raw materials.

What is covered?

  • Data tracking required by regulator
  • Fine granular CO2 tracking
  • Data quality tracking (DQR)

How to integrate data?

  • Manufacturer system integration
  • IoT data integration (in-use-phase)
  • Logistic data integration
