The Mobility House advances the future of energy storage, exceeding the 100-megawatt milestone

February 16, 2024|Munich, Zurich

  • The Mobility House surpasses the 100-megawatt mark, strengthening its market leadership as an independent energy storage marketer.  
  • Two additional innovative energy storage projects set new standards in sustainable energy supply.
  • Years of refined marketing algorithms and data analyses secure technological leadership. 

The Mobility House, a leading innovator in the intelligent integration of electric vehicle batteries into the power grid, achieves a new milestone in the energy industry. With the imminent operation of two outstanding energy storage projects, the company now exceeds the threshold of 100 megawatts of marketed capacity. This achievement strengthens The Mobility House's position as an independent market leader in the marketing and planning of energy storage in Germany, France and the Netherlands.  

Innovative large-scale energy storage project for sustainable energy supply

The first project, in collaboration with a project company and implemented by the EPC contractor and long-term partner Fenecon, marks a significant advancement in sustainable energy supply. The Mobility House is responsible for the planning and commercialization of a battery storage unit with 17 megawatts of installed capacity and 18 megawatt-hours of capacity near Lübeck on a substation site. This container-built storage will contribute significantly to grid stabilization, a role previously predominantly performed by fossil fuel power plants. It serves both frequency containment reserve (FCR) and energy trading (Day Ahead and Intraday). Furthermore, excess renewable energy will be buffered upon request from the grid operator. By using batteries from electric vehicles, the project demonstrates a strong commitment to sustainability and efficient resource utilization. 

Forward-looking industrial storage solution

The second project, implemented in collaboration with the IFES Institute for Energy Storage and under the leadership of the renowned Prof. Dr.-Ing. Michael Sterner, represents another leap forward in storage technology. Zero-life NMC vehicle modules in two Fenecon Industrial L units are used in co-location with a solar installation near Regensburg. This storage will also provide flexibility to the short-term and control power markets. The decision to choose The Mobility House as the marketer for this project is based on the unique vertical integration of planning, technology, and commercialization, as well as the ability to use comprehensive battery data for precise marketing decisions and an early warning system for safe operation. The company's extensive experience in marketing vehicle batteries underscores its competence in minimizing battery degradation, defining the measurement concept, and data analysis. 

Market leadership through experience and innovation

With these projects, The Mobility House, as an innovation leader in storage marketing, expands its portfolio beyond the previous close collaboration with automotive partners. This initiative strengthens the company's position as a leading planning partner and commercializer of large-scale storage. With fully automated multi-market optimization, enabled by refined algorithms allowing seamless switching between different control power and energy products, as well as adapting to local requirements such as peak shaving, optimizing self-consumption, and backup power supply, The Mobility House set industry standards years ago. Since 2015, the company has demonstrated through the synergy of its planning and marketing capabilities how it generates added value from energy storage beyond the use of vehicle batteries and displays a deep understanding of installations. This expansion demonstrates the technology company's commitment to market leadership and innovation by offering solutions that not only promote the efficiency and sustainability of the power grid but also contribute to a continuously emission-free environment.
