The cooperation is intended to sustainably advance the expansion of the fast charging infrastructure in the Allgäu region.
With a long-term cooperation, Allgäuer Überlandwerk GmbH and Numbat GmbH want to offer Allgäu companies and customers the best possible supply of High-Power Charging stations for electric cars. High-Power Chargers are ultra-fast chargers that can charge cars up to 80% in 15 minutes. The startup Numbat relies on a technological combination of charging station and battery storage, which allows installation at any location regardless of the grid connection output, and also even relieves grids, as well as supports energy management in the company. “For corporate customers of AÜW, we also offer free electricity analysis and consulting to transparently show the savings which can be made by installing the Numbat,” says co-founder and CEO Martin Schall.
The expansion of the charging infrastructure is one of the essential tasks of e-mobility, which Michael Lucke, Managing Director of AÜW, reaffirms. “I am sure that the topic of charging will soon be part of everyday life. As a future-oriented company, we already operate more than 100 charging points in the Allgäu region in the area of normal and fast chargers. The cooperation with Numbat is the next important step for a consistent expansion in the area of ultra-fast chargers. We are very pleased that we supply the charging points with 100% green electricity and map the technical processing of the charging and payment transactions via our system. This ensures that these innovative charging points are reliably available to all e-mobility users on the public charging network.”
The issue of sustainability plays a key role for both companies. The fast charging points are therefore supplied either by AÜW with 100% green electricity from the Allgäu region or, in the case of existing PV systems, from self-generated energy. In both cases, this makes fast charging even more sustainable and greener.
The cleantech startup from the Allgäu region combines three worlds with its patented technology: A High-Power Charger (HPC) for the trendy topic of e-mobility, an integrated battery storage system for energy management solutions in companies, and all this with an environmentally friendly approach to comba climate change. The founders are Maximilian Wegener, PhD and Martin Schall, both long-time managers in battery technology. The company is based in Kempten (Allgäu).
100 years of tradition and still not tired.
Nature and homeland – these are important topics in the Allgäu, but also at AÜW. That is why we have been consistently focusing on the environmentally friendly energy supply of our region for years. With our ten hydropower plants in the Allgäu, we generate around 80 million kilowatt hours of energy every year. This energy is regenerative, from local hydropower and developed in-house –thanks to competent specialists and continuous research. It is not without reason that we are one if the most innovative energy suppliers in Bavaria.
This is also reflected in our five strategic goals:
1. We are shaping the energy future together for the benefit of our customers.
2. We stand for economically successful innovations in the Allgäu region and beyond.
3. We are the all-round service provider for energy and e-mobility in the Allgäu region.
4. We enable attractive work in all phases of life.
5. We stand for intelligent and sustainable infrastructure in Allgäu.
