The software company reev, an expert in intelligent charging platforms, and technology company The Mobility House are bringing together their two systems to make it as easy and efficient as possible for customers to set up and operate a commercial charging infrastructure for fleet use. Both established companies have set themselves the goal of providing easy access to e-mobility on a large scale. They have each developed technologies drawing on their own expertise to work towards this and have now also joined forces. Alongside its energy management solution, reev will now offer customers ChargePilot®, the charging and energy management system by The Mobility House, thereby addressing individual requirements with a further custom-fit solution. In turn, the hardware and software-independent full-service provider The Mobility House is integrating reev's billing solution into its portfolio and will offer its customers reev software licenses for scalable, custom-fit charging solutions with billing functions. The close cooperation between the two specialists has resulted in a simple, holistic, and future-proof solution, which encompasses everything from charging stations to full-service packages.

Open interfaces as a basis for driving e-mobility forward

To ensure seamless operation of the shared systems, the two companies have opted for open, proven standards and interfaces. This includes the Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) for forwarding billing-relevant data from ChargePilot® to the reev dashboard. OCPP has been specifically developed to meet the needs of semi-public charging, which is used in company settings, the residential sector, parking environments and the hospitality industry. It makes it possible, for example, to manage multiple individual user groups and define flexible tariffs accordingly. Billing and invoicing are fully automated, all processes run in the background. With the reev app for drivers, drivers benefit from complete transparency regarding previous and current charging processes, as well as their bills and transactions. ChargePilot®, in turn, provides intelligent and energy-efficient control of charging processes to make the best possible use of existing mains connections and meet the mobility needs of customers. Depending on the use case, this can cut infrastructure and network costs by up to 70 percent or generate average savings of €250 per charging point and year. Thanks to its open interface architecture, the system is compatible with different AC and DC charging stations and the future integration of additional charging stations and modules is also possible.

"E-mobility only works with an open approach to technology. For that reason, reev promotes an open ecosystem and pursues hardware-neutral charging and energy management. It’s the only way to consistently break down barriers and drive climate-neutral mobility forward. Our collaboration with The Mobility House allows us to combine our know-how and create a joint offering to provide our customers with custom-fit, flexible and cost-effective solutions."

Eduard Schlutius,

CEO, reev

"The smooth setup and operation of energy and charging management and the automated billing of charging processes are essential for our customers and provide the basis for successful and cost-efficient fleet electrification. Our customers benefit when established companies join forces as they are guaranteed to get the best possible solution."

Heiko Bayer,

Chief Product Officer, The Mobility House
