MEDIA RELEASE: Wermuth Asset Management is co-lead investor in a 50-million-euro financing round of The Mobility House

The technology company The Mobility House is raising about 50 million euros from existing investors. Wermuth Asset Management’s Green Gateway Fund is leading this round together with Mercuria and Ventura Capital. 

The Mobility House integrates electric vehicle batteries into the power grid through smart charging and energy solutions. In this way, the company promotes the expansion of renewable energies by transforming mobile and stationary batteries of electric vehicles into buffer storage or flexibility potentials. This not only contributes to the stabilization of the electricity grids, but also makes electromobility more financially attractive. 

The Mobility House has set itself the goal of advancing and shaping the intelligent networking of the mobility and electricity market as well as the monetization of electric vehicle batteries as a leading company with the help of its specially developed software.

Jochen Wermuth, founder of Wermuth Asset Management and board member of The Mobility House, said: “At The Mobility House, we see the potential to become the world’s leading software platform for monetizing electric vehicle batteries. The goal is to provide storage services for a 100 per cent renewable energy and transport system. This way, up to 21 per cent of global CO2 emissions could be saved”. 

The Green Gateway Fund has been invested in The Mobility House since 2013 and is taking a disproportionate stake in this round. “We are thus showing our strong confidence in the future of this promising company,” says Wermuth. In addition to Wermuth Asset Management, The Mobility House’s investors include the European Investment Bank (EIB), Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi, Mercedes-Benz AG, the Mitsui Group, SP Group and others.
