The world of mobility and the energy system are undergoing change – not only reflected by scientific studies but experienced by us personally as consumers – both across Germany and internationally. We already identify positive trends and developments in both areas. But in our everyday lives we experience too little actual implementation.
The mobility and energy sector are first to reflect social developments. However both sectors shape without synchronization. In the future, new and further joint developments in both areas are needed.
Together with partners from business, society and politics we develop viable mobility concepts with sustainable energies leading to innovative markets for the clean mobility of the future. The sustainable mobility concepts follow the stakeholders’ core business and take into account the key success factors of their investments. It is necessary to evaluate suitable market partners and models of cooperation. Future progress calls for clear commitment towards managing the interfaces in favor of desirable market dynamics.
We personally exhibit the motivation, hold the know-how and maintain the right contacts to take innovative business models to implementation and thereby make the clean energy transition a tangible experience in the mobility sector. We “do mobility and energy”.
Mobility is becoming more expensive.
Rising fuel and energy prices, taxes, fees. Sharing is the new owning. Using an environmentally friendly vehicle together with your neighbor, why not? This is workable, isn’t it?
Mobility is on the rise.
Social developments, division of labor and the globalization have an impact. Demographic trends will cause increased leisure trips, not only in Germany. Providing all groups in society with flexible mobility concepts? We would do well to take a look at that, wouldn’t we?
Mobility as Energy Transition
The German government’s generation project of the “Energiewende” needs to be deeply embedded in the mobility sector - in particular, as this sector is amongst the largest emitters of greenhouse gases. We often forget about climate protection in our everyday lives. In fact, why not do “mobility the renewable way”?
Mobility will be something different
Urbanization is increasing worldwide. People relocate to metropolitan areas having no space to park their own vehicle. Nonetheless, mobility in rural areas needs to be provided for as well. Everyone wants to find more environmentally friendly ways to get around. The eco-social value added by mobility products and services becomes the new factor of prestige. The interconnected multimodal yet customized individual mobility gains significance. How about making use of that?
The subject “mobility“ has been pushing Andreas Findeisen since his infant days.
Currently he is completing his Master’s MSc Environmental Sciences at University Hagen alongside with his professional commitments and complementing his technical and interdisciplinary knowledge with additional skills for realizing sustainable mobility concepts.
"Talking about changes in our energy system is not only talking about the power generation with renewable energies. Considering the climate change and focussing on environmental targets we should not forget optimizing the mobility sector as well – especially since “mobility” is approximately responsible for 20 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions in Germany. Questions of technology and infrastructure with a system-analytic view, exploring what implications that process has and what chances it offers – that’s what challenges me.”
Jan Luca Plewa
Challeging questions beyond the horizon of “energy“ have ever since been a mission for Jan Luca Plewa. Since he discovered that independence for renewable energies requires new alliances with other fascinating industries, he concluded an extra occupational Master’s degree M.Sc. Renewable Energies on “Use of renewable electricity as Power-to-Gas for the mobility maket“ and worked out other global cross-sectional topics.
„Taking the end user perspective helps to evaluate business models based on clear bottom-line targets. Bringing renewable energies and the future mobility together needs to be convenient and affordable. Since both sectors imply costs the options to realize viable business are tied to the operational capabilities of the new and sustainable mobility concepts - developing such innovative concepts is my passion.“
Today people want to get from A to B as fast as possible - simply using their smart phone to search for ad hoc means of transport that goes well with their actual needs and is fuel efficient, if it is environmentally friendly, even better. I have to arrive on time for my business meeting and I know that there are few parking spaces in the city centre. Therefore, I use public transport and it tells me to the minute my arrival time at location. Even my mobile phone shows, I have saved CO2.
I am meeting up with friends later in the evening, but already runing late, I reserve the car sharing vehicle in front of my door. Afterwards I drive to our meeting point without a hassle while listening to my favorite artist via bluetooth of the vehicle’s sound system. Or maybe, I want to be athletic and promptly pick one of the shared bikes in front of my door. These everyday examples are our first-hand experience.
