US-based AlphaStruxure, a joint venture between The Carlyle Group and Schneider Electric, has appointed The Mobility House as its technology partner. Using the Munich-based company's charging and energy management system, AlphaStruxure aims to integrate electric bus, truck and car fleets into site and distribution networks.
According to The Mobility House, EaaS is one of the turnkey solutions that has gained acceptance in the U.S. market. "In this type of model, a service provider installs, owns and operates the charging infrastructure for a fleet customer, usually at the fleet operator's depot," the Munich-based company explains. Instead of making a financial investment, customers opt for regular payments for the service.
The Mobility House's manufacturer-neutral ChargePilot charging and energy management system controls the charging processes and optimizes the use of the available energy power. In addition to charging and fleet management, according to the partners, energy services that go beyond the needs of the vehicles and extend to the site and facilities are also offered as part of the complete package.
