How can companies efficiently integrate e-vehicles into their fleets and operate their commercial e-fleets economically? And how can a cloud-based platform for operating e-vehicles and sharing charging infrastructure contribute to greater cost transparency? The eMobility-Scout project has researched answers to these questions. For three years, the consortium, consisting of well-known companies and research institutions, worked on the economic integration of e-vehicles and charging stations in companies. The result is a cloud-based platform that drives electromobility through automation and ease of use, and provides precise guidance for the electrification of vehicle fleets.
We have proven that a regionally active company can economically convert its passenger car fleet to electric drives. An integrated IT system is a prerequisite for efficient pooling here.

The eMobility-Scout project was part of the research program “IKT EM III: Integration of commercial electric vehicles into logistics, energy and mobility infrastructures” funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi). The project focused on the integration of e-vehicles into existing logistics, energy and mobility infrastructures. For fleet managers and employees, the use of e-mobility should be made as simple as possible through the cloud platform used. All charging, fleet and infrastructure management processes were therefore combined and automated in the background of the system under the “eMobility-as-a-Service” approach.
The economic use of e-mobility is the most important argument for its rapid spread. Even before the complexity of use, this is the biggest obstacle for companies. Both factors are closely related to each other. We have integrated the various complex sub-functions in such a way that users perceive them as one application.
