Battery storage as a business model for energy providers – The Mobility House supports setup and commercialization

June 03, 2024|Munich, Zurich

  • Large-scale battery storage as a key to integrating renewable energies and flexibility in the energy system of the future.
  • The Mobility House supports energy providers in the expansion and commercialization of battery storage.
  • With eight years of commercialization experience, now exceeding 100 MWh, and numerous completed projects, The Mobility House guarantees security and a rapid return on investment.

To integrate the rapidly growing share of electricity generation from renewable energies, a high level of flexibility in the energy system is required. In addition to expanding the power grids, large-scale battery storage systems are emerging as a crucial economic pillar. In Germany, over 1 GWh of battery storage has already been installed, and various studies and government scenarios predict substantial growth to between 30 and 100 GWh by 2037.

The Mobility House, with over 100 MWh as a leading commercializer of battery storage systems, has implemented extensive projects since 2016 in collaboration with renowned car manufacturers such as Audi, Mercedes, Nissan, and Renault, as well as system integrators like BELECTRIC, Eaton, Fenecon, and Nidec. Building on strong customer relationships with energy suppliers such as Enervie, EnBW, Dortmund City Works, Mainova, MVV, SWM, RheinEnergie, and Wemag, the company is now supporting energy suppliers in building and commercializing battery storage systems.

Through the combination of various trading strategies, including Day-Ahead and Intraday trading, frequency containment reserve (FCR) and automatic frequency restoration reserve (aFRR), and the integration of local generation, The Mobility House enables a wide range of applications for battery storage systems and shortens amortization periods. The collaboration and participation of Mitsui also simplifies external financing options if needed.

"The experiences and achievements from the successful implementation of our automotive storage projects are now also available to energy suppliers who want to drive the energy transition in their regions. They benefit from eight years of commercialization and optimization expertise and can thus quickly and safely enter the energy storage business."
