IoT cloud infrastructure and service applications for energy storage

In the course of digitalization HOPPECKE deals with the possibilities of data collection through IoT and the resulting possibilities. Data will be recorded on batteries from the three product lines Motive Power, Reserve Power and Special Power and centrally merged into a cloud-based platform.

About Hoppecke

Founded in Brilon in 1927, Accumulatorenwerke HOPPECKE Carl Zoellner & Sohn GmbH is fully committed to industrial energy storage systems. The main areas are divided into emission-free drives (trak), secured power supply (grid), storage of renewable energies (sun) and railway and metro systems (rail). The company, which specializes in lead-acid and nickel-cadmium, has expanded its portfolio through its subsidiary INTILION, founded in 2019, to include modern lithium-ion storage media, thereby additionally covering the areas of stationary storage systems for buffering renewable energies, drive storage systems for industrial trucks such as forklift trucks as well as high-voltage systems for the drive of trains and other heavy-duty applications.

The highlights of the project

Enterprise-wide IoT platform

The solution created not only serves a single area, but also serves as a central IoT platform for the various products of the individual business units.

Internally and externally used digital services

Development of new, holistic services: Based on the data collection now possible through the platform, new digital services were created for internal use, e.B. in service, but also for individual customer groups.

Large data volumes

Individual data analyses require the availability of very high-frequency data with a sampling of sometimes 200ms. For each connected device, extensive data is stored, which is processed in a data lake.


  • Connection of all energy storage systems for end-to-end data acquisition
  • Development of a data infrastructure for evaluations and analyses
  • Implementation of applications for the service as well as the end customers
