Rethinking mobility and collaborating to redesign it

Electromobility, automated driving and vehicle-sharing concepts have the potential to radically reshape our mobility landscape. These trends open up attractive opportunities for new business models – both for established players and for companies looking to use innovative solutions to tap new market segments.

Fraunhofer IAO specializes in supporting the development of sustainable mobility strategies and charging infrastructure concepts as well as the business models that accompany them. We

  • compile mobility strategies for communities and regions, make practical recommendations and provide support for putting them into practice,
  • analyze the economic and ecological potential of sustainable mobility solutions, thus creating a reliable basis for decision making,
  • analyze markets and trends in technology and society systematically, and provide conceptual and creative advice in the development of new business models as well as
  • create strategies for setting up and implementing semi-public and public charging infrastructures, including site selection.

We offer a sound knowledge advantage and an outstanding network in an area that is becoming increasingly dependent on cross-sector collaboration. In joint research projects, we bring together representatives from communities, regions and the automotive, energy and ICT industries.

Micro Smart Grid

What will intelligent, decentralized energy management look like in the future? Using its own micro smart grid and control systems developed in-house, the Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Engineering IAO is exploring how to efficiently coordinate energy producers, storage systems, and consumers and demonstrates the innovative technologies required in practice.

Electromobility’s role in fleet management

Incorporating e-vehicles in fleets doesn’t just protect the environment. Companies benefit from reduced vehicle tax, insurance and operating costs, and project an eco-friendly image, too. Fraunhofer IAO offers tailored concepts that help companies and communities to integrate electric vehicles into their fleets.
