The Mobility House is celebrating its 10th anniversary

10 years of working towards an emission-free future

It all started in 2009: Thomas Raffeiner had a vision. What if there were a way to take advantage of the potential of parked electric cars? To make them available to the energy industry as mobile batteries, where they could help to meet the growing need for storage? The Mobility House concept was born.

Much has changed since then. In just ten years, The Mobility House has developed into an European market leader in the electric mobility sector. Together with our renowned partners, we have completed numerous pioneering projects in the fields of smart charging, Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) and energy storage. Today, more than 250 employees in three locations are working on the CO2 free mobility and energy development of the future — and helping to make that vision a reality.

Passionately dedicated to the energy and electric-drive revolutions:

We’re celebrating 10 years of working towards an emission-free future.

»We are incredibly proud of what we have achieved in the past ten years. We have proven that, with our work and our international team, we are on the right path and coming closer and closer to our vision of an emission-free world of energy and mobility«
