The winners of the EM-Power AWARD 2023
FENECON (Germany): FERESTO Rental Storage
FENECON from Germany develops energy storage innovations for more flexible, profitable and sustainable power grids. The company’s FERESTO Rental Storage is among the first of its kind for commercial and industrial use. The innovative leasing model enables the fast integration of large-scale battery systems, which reduce the peak demand on the grid, improves system stability and reduce the costs of grid expansion. The storage systems have a wide range of applications, whether as a temporary solution for industrial districts that are not yet connected to the grid, or for capacity expansion. FENECON offers flexible lease periods of between one day and 60 months, with scalable storage capacities from 50 kilowatts to several megawatts – without investment risk for customers. Using second-life EV batteries, FENECON’s energy solutions are also resource-conserving and sustainable.
The Mobility House (Germany): ChargePilot: The smart charging and energy management system
Munich-based The Mobility House has been developing smart solutions for the new age of sustainable e-mobility for more than 15 years. With its award-winning innovation ChargePilot, the company offers a versatile and integrable energy management system for optimized charging. The platform is hardware-independent and perfectly suited for parking lots and commercial buildings, reducing peak loads and offering an inexpensive alternative to expanding grid infrastructure. The combination of hard- and software makes it possible to charge electric vehicles primarily with electricity from renewable sources of energy, while its vehicle-to-grid functionality helps stabilize the local power grid. The panel unanimously selected ChargePilot this year because of its intuitive and upgradable platform, reliable data protection and its proven financial and ecological advantages.
