AlphaStruxure, a leader in Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS) solutions in the U.S., and technology company The Mobility House announced their strategic partnership. The aim of the companies' partnership is to intelligently integrate electric bus, truck and car fleets in the U.S. into location and distribution networks. To accomplish this, AlphaStruxure, a joint venture of The Carlyle Group and Schneider Electric, selected The Mobility House's smart Charging and Energy Management system ChargePilot® to integrate with Schneider's energy management system. Fleet operators will thus benefit from a cost-effective way to implement charging infrastructure without having to invest own capital. The smart solution from both innovators has already been contracted for a bus depot in Brookville, Maryland, currently one of the largest fleet electrification projects in North America.

EaaS is one of three turnkey solutions [1] that have gained acceptance in the U.S. market. In such a model, a service provider installs, owns and operates the charging infrastructure for a fleet customer, usually at the fleet operator's depot. In addition, energy services are provided that go beyond the needs of the vehicles targeting the site and facilities. AlphaStruxure's approach offers fleet operators a holistic solution without any financial investment of their own. The Mobility House's hardware agnostic Charging and Energy Management system ChargePilot® intelligently controls charging operations as needed, optimizing the use of available energy power.

"As the trusted partner in energy transformation, AlphaStruxure collaborates with our clients to design fully customized and integrated energy solutions that meet current and future fleet operation requirements. AlphaStruxure combines the technical, financial and contractual capabilities of The Carlyle Group, Schneider Electric and select industry-leading technology partners like The Mobility House to deliver best-in-class, bespoke Energy-as-a-Service solutions that accelerate the transition of fleets to ZEV."

Juan Macias,

CEO, AlphaStruxure

""Energy-as-a-Service could also become an interesting business model for Europe in the future, as it is the most simple and convenient solution for fleet operators. Our hardware agnostic approach and The Mobility House's system based on standard interfaces enable us to network with a wide range of innovative partners like AlphaStruxure. Through our collaboration in the U.S., we have set the course for reshaping the charging landscape for electric fleets."

Marcus Fendt,

CEO, The Mobility House

ChargePilot® is in use at more than 600 locations worldwide and enables leading fleet operators such as the Austrian Post or bus operators such as Transdev to implement electric mobility in a cost-effective and scalable manner. In addition to AlphaStruxure in the U.S., The Mobility House is also working with Mitsui, among others, on a solution tailored for large fleet customers and bus operators in Europe.
