Daimler AG is one of the most successful automotive companies in the world. With its Mercedes-Benz Cars, Daimler Trucks, Mercedes-Benz Vans, Daimler Buses and Daimler Financial Services divisions, the vehicle manufacturer is one of the largest suppliers of premium passenger cars and is the world's largest manufacturer of commercial vehicles.

The company's founders Gottlieb Daimler and Carl Benz made history with the invention of the automobile in 1886. As a pioneer of automotive engineering, Daimler is both motivated and committed to shaping the future of mobility in a safe and sustainable manner. The company focuses on safe and high-quality vehicles that fascinate and inspire, as well as on innovative and green technologies. This is because Daimler considers it both a claim and an obligation to live up to its responsibility for society and the environment.

Daimler AG is intensively driving forward the development of technologies to increase energy efficiency and energy flexibility in its global production network. The development and industrialisation of new DC-based energy supply architectures is one of the strategic fields of action.

Within the framework of the BMWi project DC-INDUSTRIE, the foundations are to be created to be able to economically implement automated production plants based on intelligent, robust DC grids in the future. This requires both clearly defined framework conditions for the design of DC grids and an interoperable ecosystem of DC components from the electrical and electronics industry.
