a charging station for every use

Mobilize PowerBox is a charging solution that adapts to all electrical installations, whether single-phase or three-phase. It can be installed indoors or outdoors, on a wall or on a stand.  

Safe to use, the Mobilize PowerBox integrates into the electrical ecosystem of the place where it is installed. Its dynamic energy management modulates the charging power according to the power available, thus avoiding tripping the system. 

The Mobilize PowerBox terminal operates on alternating current (AC). Depending on the electrical installation and the vehicle’s charging capacity, it can deliver charging power of up to 22 kW. Mobilize PowerBox is compatible with all electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles fitted with a type 2 socket. 

To meet the different needs of both private and business customers, Mobilize PowerBox is available in four versions: 

  • The UNO version is a simple, secure home recharging solution.
  • The UNO PLUS version is designed for infrastructures installed in businesses or condominiums. It incorporates an RFID card reader to ensure that only authorised users have access to charging. This gives the manager greater traceability of the charging point’s operation.
  • The UNO PRO version is accessible to the general public or installed on company premises. In addition to an RFID reader, this version is equipped with a MID (Measurement Instruments Directive) meter that enables electricity to be billed back to service users and simplifies the reimbursement of employees’ business expenses by certifying the electricity consumed during home recharging. 
  • The VERSO version is the two-way Mobilize PowerBox charging point. It charges the vehicle, of course, but it can also send electricity back to the home network and to the public grid. A dream that will soon become reality, with the Renault 5 E-Tech electric. Equipped with a bi-directional charger, the iconic city car is the first vehicle in a long series to benefit from reversible charging – when combined with the Mobilize PowerBox Verso charging point and the Mobilize electricity contract.

All Mobilize PowerBox versions can be locked and unlocked remotely, updated automatically and diagnosed remotely if required (FOTA, firmware over the air) via WiFi or Ethernet connection. The UNO PRO and VERSO versions have a 4G connection.

two-way intelligent charging: a reality thanks to Mobilize PowerBox Verso

At the cutting edge of the latest energy and data management technologies, the Mobilize PowerBox Verso communicates directly with the car, but also with the home network and the public electricity grid.  

The user doesn’t have to worry about a thing. The system’s intelligence and connectivity mean that the service can take control of the charging and discharging of the vehicle.  

On the one hand, the car is charged at times when electricity is the least carbon-intensive and cheapest, i.e. when it is most available on the grid compared with overall demand. This is particularly the case when the sun is shining on photovoltaic panels and the wind is blowing through wind turbines. As well as helping to reduce the share of fossil fuels in the electricity mix, this means lower energy bills for users, up to 50% for home charging. 

On the other hand, the car is discharged at times when the electricity supply is insufficient compared with demand. The low-carbon electricity stored in the vehicle thanks to the intelligent charging phases can then be fed into the user’s domestic electricity network or the public electricity network. By offsetting the intermittency of renewable energies such as solar and wind power, the bi-directional system encourages the grid to make maximum use of them, in order to produce low-carbon electricity.  

From Mobilize’s point of view, intelligent two-way recharging, or V2G (vehicle to grid), is not just for the happy few. On the contrary, it is designed to be accessible, so as to maximise its impact on the local energy mix. Mobilize PowerBox operates on direct current (AC), which considerably reduces its acquisition cost compared with terminals operating on alternating current (DC). Combined with its ability to generate significant savings for the user, Mobilize PowerBox actively contributes to the widespread adoption of two-way electric charging.

combining expertise for carbon-free electric mobility

The Mobilize PowerBox is the fruit of the strength and technological expertise of a veritable ecosystem: the Software Republic, and more specifically 4 of its members – Orange, Renault Group, STMicroelectronics and Thales – together with their partner IoTecha Corp.  

The Mobilize PowerBox terminal is thus at the heart of innovation in intelligent, secure and sustainable mobility. Two examples among many? It has been designed to guarantee users a maximum level of cyber security, thanks in particular to the expertise of Thalès. And its services are always at the cutting edge of technology, courtesy of a remote update system.  

To manufacture it, a specialist was also needed. The industrial launch of the Mobilize PowerBox charging point took place in February 2024, on the new production line at Lacroix’s “Symbiose” electronics plant in Maine-et-Loire, France. Lacroix, an international player in the electronics production of embedded systems and industrial connected objects, is thus putting its strategy of automated and digitalised Industry 4.0 at the service of Mobilize. 

The choice of this partner is in line with Renault Group’s commitment to contributing to the relocation of the electronics industry in France. In addition, the plant benefits from a network of local suppliers that reduces the carbon impact of the supply chain. 

The Mobilize PowerBox charging point will soon be available in the Renault network for all Renault Group brand electric vehicles, starting of course with the Renault 5 E-Tech electric. The Renault network is a genuine “one-stop shop”, enabling customers to order their vehicle and charging point at the same time. The Mobilize PowerBox will be installed and ready for use as soon as the vehicle is delivered. 

The Mobilize brand dedicated to recharging solutions, Mobilize Power Solutions, is responsible for setting up the Mobilize PowerBox. Its expertise is particularly valuable in supporting business customers, whether in assessing the needs of the user(s), installing the right version of the charging station and monitoring its operation.

electric car charging: Mobilize simplicity serves Renault 5 E-Tech electric

The iconic little city car born in 1972 is reinventing itself. Its ambition is once again to make its mark. But how? By embodying a response to the technological, social and environmental challenges of today’s mobility in a way that is both committed and exciting. Mobilize, the Renault Group brand dedicated to new, low-carbon forms of mobility, is helping to meet this challenge.

  • brand vision
  • electric vehicle
  • energy transition

AN OFFER combining Renault Group skills and expertise

Its unique and emotional design is not its only asset. Renault 5 E-Tech electric is a perfect expression of the Renault Group’s multi-specialist strategy.  

 

First and foremost, it proudly bears the Renault brand image and its innovations with human added value. Renault 5 E-Tech electric is intuitive and warm, comfortable, safe, connected, simple… 

 

It also embodies the advanced technologies and competitive advantages developed by Ampere, the Renault Group entity specialising in electric vehicles and software. Its unique platform dedicated to small 100% electric vehicles and the strength of its European industrial ecosystem make the Renault 5 E-Tech electric a cutting-edge car, while allowing it to be sold at an affordable price. 

 

Last but not least, this 100% electric model benefits from Mobilize’s expertise in electric recharging.  

THE MOBILIZE ECOSYSTEM simplifies the charge of an electric car

Mobilize offers a range of products and services that accelerate the transition to mobility that emits fewer greenhouse gases and consumes fewer natural resources. The cars designed by Renault Group brands rely on Mobilize to enhance their users’ experience. Renault 5 E-Tech electric is undoubtedly the most striking such example. 

 

To plug in the Renault 5 E-Tech electric at home or in the office, Mobilize Power Solutions offers the installation of recharging points in private access areas. This is particularly true of the brand-new Mobilize PowerBox charging point, whose unexpected powers are described in more detail below.  

 

At home, Mobilize Smart Charge offers an intelligent, low-cost recharging solution. It’s an application that controls vehicle charging to coincide with the times when electricity is most available on the grid, i.e. when it’s mainly low-carbon and cheap. This saves around 20% on the cost of electric charging. 

 

As for recharging on the road or in the street, Mobilize Charge Pass makes it as easy as possible. A single card gives access to more than 600,000 public charging points in 25 European countries, with payment on recharging. What’s more, by activating Mobilize Charge Pass on the My Renault application, users can take advantage of the Mobilize Plug & Charge function at a large number of direct current (DC) charging points on fast lanes.     With this truly “hands-free” mode, all you have to do is plug in Renault 5 E-Tech electric to start charging and secure invoicing, without having to take out a card or code. 

THE RENAULT 5 E-TECH ELECTRIC: a real energy player via Mobilize services

The new Ampere platform dedicated to B-segment electric vehicles gives the Renault 5 E-Tech electric significant competitive advantages in terms of architecture and electrical and electronic innovations. This is particularly true of the vehicle’s on-board charger.  

 

Renault 5 E-Tech electric is launching a new 11 kW bidirectional alternating current (AC) charger. Combined with the Mobilize PowerBox bi-directional charging point and the Mobilize electricity contract, it enables users to benefit from bi-directional charging. Part of the electricity stored in the vehicle’s battery can then be used to power an electrical appliance in the home, such as a barbecue or hoover. This is known as ‘V2L’ (vehicle-to-load). But the R5 goes even further: its charger is also compatible with the V2G (vehicle-to-grid) service, which allows the car to feed carbon-free electricity back into the grid. Thanks to this new charger, the Renault 5 E-Tech electric can not only charge at times when the supply of electricity is greater than demand on the grid, i.e. with the lowest carbon electricity possible, but also “charge the grid” when the supply of electricity is less than demand. In other words, the electric vehicle smoothes out peaks in supply and peaks in demand on the energy grid. The result? The intermittency of electricity production from renewable energy sources (solar, wind, etc.) is no longer an obstacle to their use! This will encourage the production of low-carbon electricity and improve the local energy mix. 

 

The V2G system, pioneered on the Renault 5 E-Tech electric and set to become standard on all Renault Group vehicles, places the vehicle at the heart of the energy ecosystem. Using the different Mobilize services mentioned above, a Renault 5 E-Tech electric equipped with the bi-directional AC charger becomes a real lever for decarbonisation. 


THE MOBILIZE POWERBOX, essential for two-way recharging

Mobilize is launching the Mobilize PowerBox charging point and its bidirectional version, called Mobilize PowerBox Verso. This innovation was designed in collaboration with teams from the Software République, a European collaborative ecosystem for safe and sustainable mobility, founded by several major companies including Renault Group. Manufactured in France, Verso develops power of up to 22 kW in alternating current (AC) and is compatible with all electric and rechargeable hybrid vehicles.  

 

Mobilize PowerBox Verso communicates with the Renault 5 E-Tech electric bi-directional charger and the cloud to – according to circumstances – either recharge the vehicle’s battery or send electricity back to the grid. Depending on the need to recharge the battery, domestic requirements and the incentives of the energy market and the public grid, Mobilize PowerBox Verso circulates the current between the car and the home, at the highest level of electrical safety, durability of the installations and the battery, and cyber security. 

A MOBILIZE ELECTRICITY CONTRACT completes the V2G system

To take advantage of the two-way V2G (vehicle to grid) function, the Mobilize PowerBox Verso terminal must be associated with a specific electricity contract. Marketed by Mobilize, and designed in technological partnership with The Mobility House, this contract guarantees green electricity and enables the energy returned to the grid to be monetised thanks to the automated control of the bidirectional charge. On the one hand, users benefit from electricity at a rate that is as competitive as the reference market price, and on the other, they can earn income from the resale of the electricity. In France, for example, this income could cover up to 50% of the cost of home charging. The Mobilize V2G service will be available from the launch of the Renault 5 E-Tech electric in 2024 in France and Germany, and in 2025 in the UK. 

Together with the various stakeholders in the Renault Group ecosystem – the Ampere and Software République entities, and of course the Renault brand and its network – Mobilize is taking a pivotal role in adding another dimension to the automobile. For the first time, with Renault 5 E-Tech electric, an individual vehicle is becoming a key player in our energy ecosystem. 

V2G: the double impact of Mobilize Power two-way charge 

HIGHLIGHTS

V2G: the double impact of Mobilize Power two-way charge

Does Mobilize Power, V2G or Vehicle to Grid ring a bell? It’s an innovative bidirectional electric vehicle charging service that allows you to charge your car’s battery at home with clean energy, at the best possible rate, and then feed part of it back into the grid at peak times. This means great savings with the Mobilize electricity contract, while relieving the strain on the grid with carbon-free electricity. It’s a bit like the double impact of V2G technology.

  • electric vehicle
  • energy transition

how does V2G work?

Imagine yourself at the wheel of your new Renault 5 E-Tech electric, the first car in a long series to be compatible with the Mobilize Power V2G two-way charge service…

You calmly drive back home; you plug your Renault 5 into your Mobilize Powerbox charging point; you enter your next departure time and the level of charge you want on your smartphone application. And that’s it.

Now the Mobilize V2G double impact begins.

electric vehicle charging – a source of savings

The first impact is both very clever and very intelligent. 

Very clever because, as part of your contract, Mobilize supplies your car and your home with carbon-neutral energy, with the guarantee of halving the cost of recharging at home.  

Very intelligent because your car and your Mobilize Powerbox charging point are bidirectional. 

Without your battery ever falling below the minimum charge level you set, it allows the stored electricity to be fed back into your home and into the electricity grid, when there is a high demand for electricity. Mobilize resells this electricity at the best possible time, a good way of reducing your overall bill.  

This automatic “gesture” therefore earns you money.  

when charging your car develops green electricity

This automatic “gesture” is also good for the planet. 

This is the second Mobilize V2G impact, which is even cleverer and even more intelligent. 

Even cleverer because the electricity fed back into the grid is carbon-free. You’re relieving the grid with clean energy. 

Even more intelligent, because on the scale of a single car, this gesture is already significant: even more effective than switching off the lights at home or turning down your radiators by 1 degree. 

On the scale of 30,000 vehicles, you get the power of a medium-sized thermal power station. 

By 2035, tens of millions of electric vehicles will be on the road in Europe. A huge potential energy reserve! With V2G, the electric car becomes an opportunity for the electricity grid. 

Turning your own electric car into an energy reserve is possible…  

Mobilize Power is all about simplicity, prioritising your need for mobility at all times. The double impact is clear: you save money and the planet thanks you!

switching commercial vehicles and heavy vehicles to electric: wholly designed recharging by Mobilize Power Solutions

GUIDEBOOK

switching commercial vehicles and heavy vehicles to electric: wholly designed recharging by Mobilize Power Solutions

Electricity is not just for private cars. Rechargeable battery technology is perfectly suited to larger vehicles and to professional use. As for the charging process, which is often carried out on the company’s premises, it is even less of a hassle in everyday life than diversions to the petrol station.

  • electric vehicle
  • energy transition

1) why opt for an electric van fleet?

It’s obvious! Worldwide, a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions are attributable to transport. Road transport is not the only factor in this equation, since CO2 emissions from air and sea transport are increasing. Nevertheless, road transport still accounts for the majority.

 

Light commercial vehicles and trucks are responsible for over 40% of road transport CO2 emissions. On a per-vehicle basis, this represents a greater impact than that of passenger cars.

 

The electrification of road transport is a major lever for successfully decarbonising the sector and achieving the ambitious goal of carbon neutrality by 2050, set by the European Commission.

 

To achieve this, developing the possibilities for light commercial vehicles and heavy goods vehicles to recharge on tour is on the agenda. Between 2025 and 2030, charging corridors dedicated to these types of vehicles will be deployed across Europe, along major trunk roads, in accordance with the AFIR (Alternative Fuel Infrastructure Regulation) adopted by the European Union. These charging stations will have the immense merit of reassuring professionals that the switch to electric vehicles will not prevent them from continuing their business. That will create favourable conditions for the gradual decarbonisation of their fleets, including for long-distance journeys.

2) how to ensure day-to-day charging of business vehicles?

While the recharging infrastructure planned by the public authorities will play a key role in the switch to electric energy for business vehicles, on-site recharging solutions already represent the first step towards decarbonising the fleet. On a daily basis, both business and private customers recharge their vehicles wherever they are parked for the longest period of time.

 

Why make a diversion to the petrol station at the end of your journey, when you quite simply come back to the company car park and plug in your vehicle?

 

This is particularly the case for a company that operates commercial vehicles and/or heavy goods vehicles. Depending on the type of vehicle and how it is used, it may be a good idea to install AC charging points for charging at night if the vehicles do not move during this time, or DC charging points if the vehicles need to be recharged quickly between 2 journeys.

3) driving electric: an enlightened choice

The benefits of electric mobility are clear, not only in terms of the environmental issues involved, but also because of the regulatory context. The purchase of an electric vehicle is encouraged by various incentives, often financial, while regulations are increasingly restrictive for users of polluting vehicles.

 

When it comes to use, too, driving an electric car proves worthwhile, whether because of the difference between the cost of electricity and the cost of fossil fuels, or thanks to less onerous mechanical maintenance compared with combustion-powered cars.

 

In order to maximise the economic benefits of choosing electric mobility, the car manufacturer partners of Mobilize, such as Renault for light commercial vehicles and Renault Trucks for heavy goods vehicles, and of course its charging specialist subsidiary – Mobilize Power Solutions – precisely analyse the current and future needs of the company: What type of vehicles does the business require? What loading volume or payload capacity? What battery versions or options to ensure the range to match the daily distances and breaks? Are the company’s market and customers’ expectations likely to change over the next few years, potentially changing its internal organisation, geographical locations, flows, etc.?

 

Based on this analysis, Mobilize Power Solutions offers a selection of services and equipment so that the company can benefit, directly on its site, from the most suitable recharging infrastructure.

 

Number and power of charging points, location of charging points, management of charging access, as well as various specific services to facilitate and optimise usage, etc. All aspects of recharging are covered.

 

4) optimum investment in on-site charging for commercial vehicles

As always, the key to good management lies in upstream analysis and anticipation, to make the right choices and reduce overall investment.

 

“By sizing the installation of chargepoints to current needs as well as planning their future development, several cost items can be reduced.”

 

Irina Khodossova – President, Mobilize Power Solutions France

 

First of all, connection to the distribution network is an expense to be considered if the electrical power available on site is not sufficient. Analysis of the charging cycles of commercial vehicles and lorries is a key factor in optimising or even eliminating this cost item.

 

Secondly, civil engineering works (trenches, foundations, etc.) can be significant. To limit these costs, the locations of future terminals must be carefully considered, in particular to ensure short connection distances. Locations are also chosen to accommodate vehicle circulation, parking and manoeuvring requirements, depending on the vehicle’s size, the presence of a potential trailer, the number of vehicles to be recharged at the same time, etc. The position of the socket on the bodywork and the length of cable required also play a part in determining the precise location of the charging points. Not forgetting to include the pre-equipment for future extensions upstream, to pool costs.

 

Another item not to be overlooked is electrical engineering work (cables, cable trays, electrical protection), which directly depends on the charging power and the distances between the connection point and the charging infrastructure. This amount will be all the more limited if the other items are calibrated to just what is needed.

 

Finally, investment in equipment should also be considered: charging points, but also electrical cabinets and even transformer substations. In this area, beware of preconceived ideas! A heavy goods vehicle does not necessarily need a high-power charging point. What’s needed is the right power for the job. For example, household waste skips usually make rounds of around 150 km a day and then remain parked for 8 to 10 consecutive hours. So 22 kW charging stations are perfectly adequate.

 

Savings are then substantial: the investment budget for a 22kW AC charging point is 10 times lower than that for a 150kW DC charging point, mainly because of the equipment cost.

 

On the other hand, if logistics flows require several vehicles in rotation and short recharging cycles, high-power recharging infrastructures (from 100 to 350 kW) are preferable. To reduce and smooth out the bill, financial aid from the public authorities is supplemented by Mobilize Power Solutions’ financing solutions, such as leasing or financial rental.

5) operating costs and energy budget under control

The mission of Mobilize Power Solutions’ experts doesn’t stop once the charging stations have been installed. They work with the company to control operating and maintenance expenses. These costs are optimised as soon as several vehicles can take it in turns to use the same charging point. A terminal may even become a source of income, if the professional who owns it provides access to a third party in return for a fee. The more chargepoints are accessible to a large number of vehicles, the more the ecosystem in which the company operates becomes electrified, encouraging synergies.

 

What about the electricity costs? Site managers have various ways of controlling their energy budget. Mobilize Powers Solutions analyses the actual energy consumption on the site (subscribed power, electricity consumption profile and observed peaks), estimates the energy requirements arising from the trucks’ and commercial vehicles’ operating needs, and proposes optimised technical solutions that can incorporate dynamic energy management and even the production of local renewable energy.

 

 

In short, the switch to electric light commercial vehicles and heavy goods vehicles makes sense from both an environmental and an economic point of view, and the issue of recharging is central to this. That’s why Mobilize Power Solutions is working with professionals, throughout Europe, taking a 360° view of their operational, financial and energy challenges.

Mobilize Iléo Concept, the urban development that turns charging electric vehicles into a matter of course

Recharging one’ s mobile phone, which has become an essential part of everyday life, is not a problem. Why should recharging a car be? Patrick Lecharpy, Mobilize Design Director, and Patrick Jouin, Urban Design Specialist, explain us how Iléo Concept was born out of the observation of the use of new forms of mobility, particularly electric and shared forms.

Mobilize offers an urban development concept that brings energy closer to where it is needed. Mobilize Iléo Concept not only allows you to recharge your car, but also to take advantage of this break to sit down, read, or enjoy a moment of conviviality, sheltered from the rain or heat. Easily identifiable from afar and harmoniously integrated into the city, this street furniture creates a real landscape.
