NTT DATA and DENSO building industry-wide dataspace for EV batteries

NTT DATA Corporation and DENSO Corporation have started to build an industry-wide ecosystem for electric vehicle (EV) batteries to create a global trusted dataspaces where only necessary data can be shared, while also protecting private data.

The new battery regulation currently being reviewed in Europe will require disclosure of CO2 emissions and the resource recycling rate throughout battery lifecycles to the European Commission. In the future, when Japanese companies sell EVs, including battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), in the European market, they will be required to meet this regulation. To make this possible, it is necessary to build a common platform for sharing data securely between suppliers in the value chain, instead of requiring respective companies to meet the regulation individually.

NTT DATA and DENSO have therefore jointly applied for the solicitation of proposals under the subsidy program of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) to create an industry-wide ecosystem for EV batteries. The two companies were officially approved as business operators in September 2022.

In the future, the platform used for the ecosystem is intended to serve as a next-generation information infrastructure, allowing for the secure use of data among companies in different industries, including EV batteries.

NTT DATA and DENSO will launch a study on a common platform for the automotive and manufacturing industries with the aim of commercializing services by the end of FY2023.

NTT DATA and DENSO will also establish a structure and system in Japan and deploy them in Asian countries where Japanese cars are widely used, with the aim of creating a platform which will be widely used both in Japan and overseas in the future.
