The Mobility House, GESI to deliver 8 GW of battery storage in Germany

The portfolio is to be implemented by a joint venture between the two companies by 2035. The Mobility House will contribute its experience in commercilization of the batteries, while GESI will handle project coordination and financing.

The burgeoning market for large-scale battery energy storage systems in Germany has created the framework for another large project portfolio. The Mobility House and Green Energy Storage Initiative (GESI Giga Batteries) have founded a joint venture which aims to build and commercialize up to 8 GW of projects by 2035.

The portfolio will be implemented “preferably at grid-supporting locations and former conventional power plants”. Preparations for the first joint project are already well advanced: a large-scale storage system with 250 MW of storage capacity is in concrete planning at an undisclosed location. In the second expansion stage, an additional 500 MW will be added. 

The Mobility House, founded in 2009 and active on behalf of various customers in the planning, construction and operation of charging infrastructure for electromobility, has already implemented several large-scale storage projects with used electric car batteries.

The company has been actively commercilizing such projects since 2016. According to the information provided for the pv magazine market overview “Algotrader”, its portfolio amounts to 115 MW of output and 123 MWh of capacity.

Award for aggregation and trading platform

At The Smarter E Europe 2024 trade fair, The Mobility House received one of three “The smarter E Awards” in the “Smart Integrated Energy” category for its aggregation and trading platform, which was unveiled in February.

The platform can simultaneously monitor the technical condition and temperature of battery storage systems and uses this data to develop trading strategies based on algorithms. This is intended to ensure optimal trading revenues while placing as little strain on the batteries as possible – a task that any marketing software must fulfill, which, in the opinion of the Smarter E jury, was achieved particularly well by The Mobility House.

The joint venture partner GESI was founded by a group of managers just last December and announced the plan to implement 10 projects with a total capacity of up to 20 GWh in the medium term.
