Partnering opportunity

Brussels-based start-up is looking for energy providers to test a new concept of energy and soft mobility as a service based on modular stations to enter a joint venture or technical cooperation agreement to develop this new service.

Summary

A Brussels-based start-up active in the community car sharing services is currently testing a new concept to deliver energy and soft mobility as a service. They are experts on community sharing management and they are looking for energy providers with a renewable and users-oriented mindset to test a modular station-based concept. The partnership sought is that of a joint venture or technical cooperation agreement. The stations are being tested in several locations already.

Partner sought

In order to expand the testing activities, the start-up is looking for energy providers already active in the market with a renewable and user-service mindset. Renewable energy providers are preferred but the collaboration is open as well to other types of energy providers interested. The collaboration sought is that of a joint venture or a technical cooperation agreement to bring this service onto the market. Therefore, it is expected that the partner brings its expertise on delivering energy. This partnership configuration has proven to be valid in the current testing sites.

Description

A Brussels-based start-up is addressing the mobility problem of cities by envisaging a combined community service of energy and soft mobility. The start-up is already active in the community car sharing services management and it is developing a new concept for an innovative way of delivering soft mobility and energy as a service. The concept is based on the creation of interaction between end users (peer-to-peer services). The energy and mobility service will be delivered through fix stations installed in the city that will combine the charging and parking of electrical cars and bicycles with the production of electricity by solar panels on the roof and/or on the parking areas/buildings surrounding the station. This modular station would serve the area of a district with mobility and energy. The modular station has been already designed and it is currently being tested in various locations in Belgium. It does not occupy more than 2 to 3 parking spots and could be implemented either in public / business / commercial / private areas. The testing is taking place in collaboration with a partner active in the renewable energy sector. In order to expand the testing activities, the start-up is looking for renewable energy providers already active in the market with a user-service mindset. The collaboration sought is that of a joint venture or a technical cooperation agreement to put this disruptive service on the market. The start-up brings its ample experience in the management of community users and soft mobility. It is expected that the partner brings its expertise on delivering (renewable) energy. This partnership configuration has proven to be valid in the current testing sites.

Advantages and innovations

The product envisaged to be tested will be a disruptive way to deliver mobility and energy as a service; two of the main actual concerns for cities and users. Until now, energy and mobility are delivered to the customer separately without any interaction. The fact of combining both and to deliver them together in as-a-service model is revolutionary when compared to the current state-of-the-art. The partner involved in this joint venture or technical cooperation will become a pioneer on delivering mobility and energy as a service. The objective is to bring this service into the market and establish a long term cooperation between the two entities.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
