Work with all parties involved in mobility to improve the quality of life for all – that is the mission Mobilize upholds and promotes during VIVA Technology, with services and solutions in mobility and energy, and through strong partnerships.
Smart Territories: Launch of a project with Île d’Yeu island (France), Qovoltis, and Enedis to accompany the island with its local energy transition program.
2nd Life Battery: Industrial partnership with the German start-up betteries AMPS GmbH for the manufacturing of mobile, modular, and multi-purpose energy storage systems.
Mobility Services: DUO, BENTO, HIPPO… the future vehicles designed by Mobilize for car-sharing and last-mile delivery services now have names.
Harmonization of Mobilize services: Zity becomes ‘Zity by Mobilize’, Renault Mobility becomes ‘Mobilize Share’, and Elexent solutions become ‘Mobilize Power Solutions’
Future mobility must be smart, greener, better shared, and more accessible, by all and for all, everywhere in a more sustainable world.
Mobilize goes beyond automotive and promotes an ecological transition through flexible, sustainable, use-oriented mobility and energy solutions.
Facilitate EV uptake, enable better energy management, give batteries a second life and recycle them, offer meaningful and accessible mobility services, design vehicles for specific uses, develop cutting-edge software platforms… therein lies the whole value chain that Mobilize is showcasing at VivaTech.
“Issues relating to mobility and energy transition are at the heart of concerns shared by consumers, businesses, cities, and territories. Mobilize’s ambition, through its fully integrated and comprehensive offer, is to make a more sustainable world by providing mobility services, as well as services related to energy and data. Building on partner ecosystems that are complementary to our own, we want to provide concrete solutions to promote ecological transition and develop more accessible mobility for people and goods, especially in complex and congested urban environments”, says Clotilde Delbos, CEO of Mobilize.
Supporting territories in their energy transition
To contribute to a more sustainable future, Mobilize provides mobility solutions and services that complement the traditional car-buying scheme, promotes greater asset utilization through the circular and sharing economy, and designs smart charging and energy storage solutions.
Mobilize thus addresses concrete issues with a set of solutions that can be integrated into Smart Islands or other smart territories to help them achieve carbon neutrality.
Mobilize has entered into a partnership with Île d’Yeu island Town Hall, Enedis, and Qovoltis, to support the island as it embarks on its energy transition journey. This project is a collaborative approach with the local government and other project partners, and aims to provide tailored advice and adapted solutions that fall under three main themes:
Accelerate EV conversion rates on the island;
Assess the needs in terms of innovative charging infrastructure and develop an adapted roll-out plan;
Integrate electric mobility into the island’s overall energy transition (optimize use of solar energy across the local energy networks through electric vehicles: V2G, stationary storage, etc.).
This ambitious project demonstrates Mobilize’s ability to help local communities achieve their carbon neutrality goals through a collaborative approach.
Renault Group is a pioneer in the development of ‘Smart Island’ projects with the launch, as of 2018, of an initiative in Porto Santo, recognized by WWF as capable of supporting the territory’s achievement of carbon neutrality within 10 years.
Design and industrialize innovative energy storage solutions to extend the life of EV batteries
Even after they are no longer suitable for automotive use, EV batteries are still valuable. After their 1st life in vehicles and before being recycled, EV batteries can provide energy for multiple applications.
Mobilize has reached an agreement with ‘betteries’ – a German start-up heavily involved in the circular economy – to develop and assemble a mobile, modular, multi-purpose energy system that is made up of EV battery modules.
Easily transportable, the system incorporates one to four 2.3 kWh units (betterPacks). As such, it can reach a maximum capacity of 9.2 kWh, which is roughly the same as the average daily consumption of a household. It offers the added advantage of being emissions-free and silent and paves the way for transportable power generators to develop into clean and mobile electricity outlet units.
The system has many uses and applications when connection to the grid is impossible: construction sites, food trucks, solar energy storage, film shoots and events, or even on small electric boats…
The manufacturing of this innovative storage system will begin in September 2021 at the Renault Group’s Re-Factory in Flins.
