Overview

Investing in the mobility revolution

The course has been set in favour of e-mobility, the phasing out of the combustion engine is a done deal. The expansion of the charging infrastructure is not keeping up with the rapid development of registration figures, especially away from the conurbations. emonet has developed a concept for e-charging parks that are set up in residential areas, business parks and city centres with a high proportion of offices in medium-sized and smaller towns. The charging parks are located on owned land. Invest in the development of the urgently needed charging infrastructure and benefit.

Project description

"The further development of electromobility is a forward-looking topic for German industry."

Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy

Germany is becoming electromobile: In 2020, around 194,200 new passenger cars with purely electric drives were registered - three times as many as in the previous year. In the first months of 2021, the figure will already be over 115,000. Only the expansion of the charging infrastructure is not keeping pace with the rapid development:

"2,000 charging points should be created per week, there are currently only 500 per month"

said Federal Minister of Finance Olaf Scholz in June 2021. The public charging infrastructure in Germany is currently a large patchwork of different, uncoordinated providers. Especially away from the metropolitan areas, the supply is not sufficiently secured. 

Public and semi-public charging points in Germany

As a brand of Markus Hörning GmbH (MH GmbH) - an experienced residential property developer - emonet wants to change that and is coming up with a clear concept.

"We are convinced that our concept will make an important contribution to the nationwide charging infrastructure in Germany. Our promise: We are where you are, reliable, simple. That's why we're starting where it matters most at the moment - in residential areas, business parks and central locations with office space in Saxony."

Andreas Guba, CMO emonet

emonet focuses on rural areas, on small and medium-sized towns where there is a particularly high demand. In the Vogtland region, for example, the number of charging points per 100,000 inhabitants is far below 50.

The charging points are set up in the form of a charging park. The price for ad-hoc charging is clearly communicated. Otherwise, the roaming tariffs of the affiliated providers and the regional tariff of the emonet card apply.

The favourable regional tariff of the emonet Card can be supported by credits and promotions from partners. Ideal partners are, for example, car dealerships, traders, municipalities, hotels, clubs and event organisers from the region.

In addition, emonet offers car sharing, which is primarily intended to appeal to small businesses such as craftsmen, home services, delivery services, care services or freelancers. Vans or cars can be rented as needed, thus saving considerable costs. In addition to the additional income, emonet also utilises its own charging infrastructure.

Suitable plots of land for the charging parks are acquired directly from the municipalities. The focus is on residential areas with high tenant density, business parks and city centres with a lot of office space. The first four plots have already been purchased, and further plots are in the selection process.  In Lengenfeld, implementation is already underway in front of the company's own residential block. Here, the first two Mennekes charging columns, each with two charging points, will be put into operation by the end of the year, as soon as the connections have been approved by the local grid operator, MitNetz. Foundations and connection cables have already been laid, the charging columns have been purchased and are ready.

In order to avoid possible supply bottlenecks, the construction material worth 150,000 euros has already been purchased and stored.

An emonet charging park consists of the following components:

Planned charging points on the Straße der Freunschaft in Lengenfeld
emonet Komponenten
  • A central terminal for direct payment, which also contains the meters and controls the charging processes of the individual wallboxes,
  • the wallboxes connected to the terminal,
  • the solar roofing of the parking spaces and
  • a buffer storage unit that temporarily stores the solar-generated electricity and supports stability during parallel charging processes.
  • In addition, there are snack and drink machines in the parking spaces.

The ramp-up of the public charging infrastructure on the larger properties is taking place gradually. Initially, carports with solar roofs, the supply lines and one to two charging points will be built, each with a "sharing e-car". 

Investing early pays off
About the bonus conditions

If you invest by July 21, 2021, you will receive an additional 1 % interest p.a. on the capital you have invested. This brings the total interest payment to 7 % p.a.

By the way: We also offer you immediate interest on this project.

As the share of e-cars in the region increases, the remaining charging points will be retrofitted and the rented carport parking spaces will be converted into public charging points. As the share of e-cars grows, the demand will be met by further expanding the charging infrastructure. In order to generate initial income, the parking spaces under the carports are rented out until the charging points are built up in line with demand.

The emonet concept will then grow nationwide with franchise partners who are strongly networked in their regions. A specialised construction team implements the concepts for the emonet partners and also offers construction services for charging infrastructure to third parties.

What convinced the Innovestment team to offer you this project?

Good ideas can be so simple! We are convinced by the concept and the approach as well as the experience and reliability of Markus Hörning GmbH, which is also expressed by the very good credit rating. We are also pleased with the approach of integrating the crowd, although the project would also have been financed in this way and the project will be implemented in any case. Projects like this deserve more visibility.

This speaks for emonet

  • large future market that will reliably grow strongly
  • high scalability of the concept with good margins
  • demand-oriented location where it is needed
  • project implementation has already started
  • Project owner is a solid and experienced project manager and developer with a strong financial background
  • No loss phase of the project after implementation, by expanding the offer with the rental of carports and garages

Business model

The sale of electricity in combination with other sources of revenue provides solid income.

The emonet-card involves regional partners in a variety of ways. The associated user account allows users to take part in many promotions of regional providers in addition to the low-cost recharging.

The green power will be purchased from the local power provider for approximately 21 cents per kWh. A sales price of 45 cents per kWh is to be achieved via a mixed calculation.

Our income comes from many sources:

  • the sale of electricity
  • the rental of carport parking spaces and garages on larger properties
  • a car-sharing fleet: additional income and the utilisation of the built-up charging parks
  • licence fees from emonet partners
  • charging infrastructure construction services for emonet partners and for third parties (one reason for the slow network expansion is the lack of construction capacity in the area)
  • advertising revenue from the display at the central terminal and the presentation of regional providers at the parking areas
  • revenue from the operation of vending machines
  • revenue commissions from product sales of offers in connection with the emonet Card

The result is a good return for emonet, which provides scope for expansion.

The demand for charging points cannot be met in the foreseeable future

There are around 41,000 public charging points for electric cars in Germany (as of March 2021). According to the plan, this number is to be increased to 207,000 by 2025 (source: Statista). That's just the beginning: 30 percent of all 59 million passenger cars in Germany are to be purely electric by 2040. That's 17 million passenger cars, for which at least 5 million charging points are needed.

At the moment, the charging infrastructure is still very heterogeneous and often causes confusion with different plug standards from manufacturers and different tariffs from providers. Energy companies operate 80 percent of them. In order to achieve nationwide expansion, additional providers will be necessary, including rental companies, hotel operators, or even companies like Markus Hörning GmbH with emonet.

There is also a big difference in the density of the infrastructure between the metropolitan areas and the so-called rural areas, which also include small towns. The existing charging points are often located in low-traffic areas with low visibility and therefore low utilisation. emonet goes to the demand points with the charging parks.

Share of e-vehicles in total stock
New Registration

emonet brings the charging points to the people

Accordingly, the choice of location plays a decisive role in capacity utilization. This is where emonet comes in: Nine out of ten e-car owners charge their vehicles at home or at work. At home, that currently still means home, because that is where most privately used e-cars are currently located.

However, 57 percent of all German citizens do not live in their own homes, but in rented apartments. Access to a charging station is not as easy as in a garage at home. If the number of new car registrations remains at the current level and 30 percent of all cars in Germany are electric by 2040, according to the estimate of the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA), around 9.7 million cars will then be parked in residential areas with rented apartments that need to be charged. 

What makes emonet different from other providers?

"With our emonet brand, we are going where charging points are urgently needed: in the cities outside the conurbations, and specifically in residential areas, commercial areas and city centers with lots of office space. In other words, where people live and work and not on greenfield sites. To this end, we are entering the market with a clear brand promise and a strong focus on service."

Andreas Guba, CMO emonet

Partnership models ensure attractive charging prices and also give companies the opportunity to provide their customers with additional added value. Car dealerships, for example, can provide the charging infrastructure and thus improve their sales of e-cars and their customer service. Housing administrations or landlords increase the attractiveness of their residential quarters by offering their tenants charging options. Companies can offer their employees free charging as a benefit, and municipalities can position themselves as modern administrations by offering charging options in the city center. The possibilities are countless.

Online Investment Update II (in German)
How emonet is driving the expansion of the charging infrastructure for e-cars

A recent study by Autoscout24 says: 41 percent of respondents rule out buying an e-car. Besides the costs, the lack of charging infrastructure is the most frequently cited reason for rejection. How can the transport revolution succeed in this situation?

emonet is tackling the issue exactly where the shoe pinches the most: in areas with a high stock of rental flats, in commercial areas and in urban areas with a lot of office space.

Investment Update II: How emonet is driving the expansion of charging infrastructure for e-cars

Project updates

08.11.2021

The first two e-charging stations are in place and have been put into operation.

05.11.2021

An important milestone has been reached on the way to implementing the project. The expansion of the public charging infrastructure is being funded by the federal government! Today, the emonet team received a positive funding decision for the funding programme "Local charging infrastructure". With the funding, the step-by-step development of the first charging parks and the ramp-up of the utilisation of the charging points can be tackled.

19.10.2021

The first site (Humboldtstraße 10) has already been purchased. The first emonet charging park will be built here by summer 2022.

08.10.2021

emonet GmbH was founded as planned. After the secured kick-off of Markus Hörning GmbH, it will conceptually implement emonet on further plots of land.

24.09.2021

Stadtwerke Reichenbach is an emonet partner and supports the search for a location, implementation and the search for further regional partners. 80 percent of all regional trades in the Vogtland district obtain their electricity from the municipal utilities.

10.09.2021

Five new sites in Reichenbach are already in the pipeline and under consideration.

13.08.2021

Talks with municipalities, car dealerships, housing associations, regional companies and suppliers of hardware and software are in full swing.

Would you like to find out more background information?
Here you can read answers to the questions that other investors have asked

Our charging stations are covered by an electronics insurance policy for the charging pole and connected chargers. It covers destruction, unforeseen events, loss and force majeure as well as design, material or workmanship defects.

The first Mennekes charging stations require a visual inspection every six months and maintenance every four years. The electronics are maintained remotely.  

This means that the planned utilisation of the charging stations is not affected: Four vehicles per day and charging point can charge 50% of theirs for eight hours.

Yes, there are. We are currently taking a close look at the underground car park infrastructure of the company "Heimladen", through which interested tenants can rent a box in the emonet look.  

However, in rural areas such as small towns and commercial areas, including the Vogtland, outdoor solutions will play the main role. Underground garages are less common here than in conurbations due to the space available in outdoor areas.

There are several reasons:  

  • The topic of charging infrastructure concerns everyone. Through crowdfunding, we involve a broader public in the project and let them benefit from it.  
  • Traditional financial institutions (banks, leasing companies) are still hesitant about the business model of charging infrastructure operation because there is little experience to validate it.
  • We need funds with short maturity. Traditional mezzanine financing is not much cheaper or requires disproportionately high collateral.

The latest status in the immediate vicinity can be viewed at https://ladesaeulenregister.de. All reported public and semi-public charging points are registered here. In figures: According to the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), there are currently just over 41,700 charging points in Germany. That is around 50 charging points per 100,000 inhabitants. We estimate that between 2,000 and 3,000 charging points per 100,000 inhabitants are needed if 30 percent of all registered vehicles are to be electric by 2040. There is still a lot of room for improvement.

A charging pole can contain several charging points. A wallbox is usually one charging point. Each charging cable that can be connected to a piece of hardware at the same time is an additional charging point.

The battery in the e-car stores direct current and delivers it to the technology in the same way. The power grids in Germany transport alternating current. Therefore, the charging current must be converted. This happens either in the hardware before the charging point (charging station) or in the vehicle.If the current has to be converted to direct current in the vehicle, this reduces the charging speed. That's why fast charging stations (Superchargers) output direct current that has already been converted. This happens with a power of up to 300 kW - a challenge for the power grid!

Charging points, on the other hand, where vehicles draw alternating current, have an output of up to 22 kW.

By way of comparison, vehicle batteries with a capacity of 40 kWh require 20 minutes at the Supercharger and around 3.5 hours at the 22 kW charging point for a complete charge.

Yes, here the industry and the authorities have agreed on standards for charging with AC (alternating current) and DC (direct current). For AC charging, "Type2" plugs are generally used, and for DC charging, plugs with the "CCS" (Combined Charging System) standard.

According to the ADAC, 10 million electric cars would mean an additional electricity demand of about 5.6 percent or 30 TWh. That would be bearable for the German power grid as a whole. The challenge is the electricity demand at the specific charging point.

A German household has a connection of 14.5 kW; with hot water heating, it is 34 kW.

A charging point that charges a battery with the capacity of 40 kWh in a manageable time (about 3.5 hours) has a connection value of 22 kW. The e-charging stations of emonet contain up to 20 charging points. If several e-cars are charging at the same time, this will have an impact on the adjacent power grid.

You can imagine what this means for the fast charging stations with connections up to 300 kW.

The solution to these stresses is buffer storage, which temporarily stores electricity during charging breaks, which is then available in the appropriate quantity during peak times.

To protect the power grids, different peak times are defined depending on the region, at which the charging infrastructure is disconnected from the grid for approx. 1.5 hours in the morning and 1.5 hours in the evening. Furthermore, several charging points have to be connected in series, so that several people willing to charge have to share the power when charging at the same time. This increases the charging time by a factor of vehicles.

To counteract both impairments, buffer storage is indispensable and must be dimensioned according to the quantity of charging points in the specific case of emonet.

The main providers of public charging infrastructure in Germany are the electricity suppliers (80 percent of the charging infrastructure) and the major manufacturers of e-cars (Superchargers on European highways - Ionity or Tesla). In addition, there are more and more providers like emonet, which build charging infrastructure tailored to regions. It will take everyone's effort to meet this challenge. Different business models will result in the networks. Intensive work is currently being done on a national and European standard with regard to charging and payment options.

We are looking for sites in residential areas, in commercial areas and in city centers with a high proportion of offices. The respective power grid operator must enable connections that correspond to the planned number of charging points with storage support.
