Electromobility is the basis for an environmentally friendly and energy-efficient mobility concept in the company. In order to increase the utilization of the e-vehicles and to increase the economic efficiency, the int egration of a sharing model is worthwhile. The aim of the Shared E-Fleet project was therefore to develop a modern booking platform for the use of commercial e-vehicle fleets across company boundaries. The model, which was successfully tested in business parks and at the Magdeburg city administration, combined state-of-the-art technology with intelligent fleet and energy supply systems and proves that e-fleets can be organized in an economically sustainable manner with the right software.
The economic use of e-mobility is the most important argument for its rapid spread,” says Frank Meißner, project manager at consortium leader Carano Software Solutions. “Even before the complexity of use, this forms the biggest barrier among 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.

The Shared E-Fleet project networks various IT solutions and components into a mobility system and integrates fleet management, energy management and traffic data in a cloud solution. The integration of public transport for intermodal trips, partner models for the use and billing of other fleets, and the simulation and analysis of demand forecasts were also investigated for future mobility management.
Sustainability and economic efficiency do not have to be opposites, as the Shared E-Fleet project has shown.
For successful e-car sharing, vehicle and charging station manufacturers must develop standards for interfaces, access authorizations, charging control, and access to live operating data. For the further spread of electromobility, policymakers must remove legal and tax barriers and create incentives for charging at home. The consortium recommends that companies, public authorities and other organizations add electric vehicles to their fleets and test the benefits – with suitable IT solutions.
The Shared E-Fleets practical guide shows how e-vehicles can be used jointly across several companies and organizations and which IT solutions are required for this. It is aimed at companies, public authorities, municipalities and fleet managers.
