Our technology unites the automotive and energy industries.
We integrate vehicle batteries into the power grid using intelligent charging and energy solutions. This way, we promote the development of renewable energies, stabilize the power grid, and make electric mobility more affordable.
The Mobility House was founded in 2009 and operates worldwide from its locations in Munich, Zurich and Belmont (CA). As a neutral supplier, we work together with many partners such as charging infrastructure manufacturers, installation companies, back-end system operators, energy suppliers and automobile manufacturers.
What drives us
» In a time when new technologies are establishing themselves in the automobile and energy sectors, we are taking corporate responsibility. Paving the way to a clean future with a committed team is our inspiration, motivation and mission in one. As The Mobility House, we anchor electric mobility in a world of smart energy. The customer experiences electric mobility with suitable solutions for safe, CO2-neutral charging and renewable energy as fuel«

Our belief: Mobility must become emission-free.
Join us now on the path to this green future.
What we have achieved so far
Smart charging in practice: a fleet of 10 Renault Zoes is successfully charged on a time-controlled basis while responding to price fluctuations on the energy market. This allows the cost of power consumption to be optimised, which benefits the car owner.
At The Mobility House, a good espresso is prepared a little differently than usual. The electricity comes from the car! A Nissan Leaf is parked in the underground car park, where it supplies energy to the whole office. The electric car’s battery supplies electricity directly to the building’s power grid.
For the first time, we integrate our electric cars (Nissan Leaf and Nissan e-NV200) into the power supply at our office in the smarthouse in Munich, by means of bidirectional fast charging stations. With this simulation of power supply capacity, we demonstrate the seminal potential of the electric car as energy storage.
The largest second-life stationary storage in the world at that point goes online. After a construction phase of approximately one year, the 13-Mwh project is nearly complete. A total of 1000 battery systems from second-generation smart fortwo electric drive vehicles are grouped together to create a stationary battery storage in the German city of Lünen, in Westphalia. The first power units are already integrated into the grid.
Groupe Renault and Empresa de Electricidade da Madeira (EEM) begin the joint project “Smart Fossil Free Island” on Porto Santo. The first intelligent electric ecosystem in the world is founded on four pillars: electric vehicles, stationary energy storage, intelligent vehicle charging and discharging as well as vehicle-to-grid applications.
The Johan Cruijff ArenA in the Netherlands is the first stadium in the world to meet its future energy needs with a storage system composed of new and used electric vehicle batteries. The 3-MW battery storage in the arena will ensure more reliable and efficient power supply and power usage in the stadium. This benefits visitors, the surrounding neighbourhood and the European power grid.
It’s a major milestone for the integration of electric vehicles into the power grid: for the first time ever, a Nissan Leaf in a “quasi-stationary” vehicle-to-grid application is pre-qualified as a large power plant in compliance with the transmission grid operator’s regulations. This means that the electric car is approved for primary control power and contributes to the stability of the power grid.
Since the beginning of the Porto Santo project, we have worked to increase the proportion of renewable energy that is produced using local wind and solar energy systems. To this end, The Mobility House developed the intelligent software known as “Marketplace”. This optimises the interplay between conventional electric cars, stationary second-life battery storages and bidirectional electric vehicles.
In cooperation with Audi, we open the largest multi-use storage in Germany on the EUREF campus in Berlin. The storage, which has a capacity of 1.9 MWh, uses used lithium-ion batteries from a test fleet. It tests various scenarios in which e-cars interact with the power grid. With its capacity, the storage could independently supply the entire 5.5-hectare office and science campus with electricity for just under two hours.
