XOOming into the future: XOO is a smart charging system for sustainable micromobility in public spaces. Positioning XOO charging points in cities enables the charging of small electric vehicles at the point of demand. XOO for everywhere you go – convenient, cost-efficient and energy-efficient.

The green transportation revolution

Changing the ways of mobility and transportation is one of the biggest challenges of our times. We all know the formula: We need to cut climate-damaging emissions and pollutants, our vehicles should be less noisy, travel has to become safer, and we need more space on the busy sidewalks of our cities. But at the same time, we don’t want to restrict mobility options or make getting around unaffordable. The future will be about new types of vehicles, novel engines, and a symbiosis of public transportation, sharing networks, innovative urban planning, and a whole host of environmentally friendly concepts.

An important piece of the puzzle: micromobility

Fewer cars on the roads – more electric vehicles. In Germany alone, almost 30 million car journeys of less than 2 miles are made every day. Some 30 million car journeys are no more than eight miles. Most of those journeys could be completed on small electric vehicles – aka micromobility vehicles – such as electric scooters, mopeds, and bikes. And this is often faster than traveling by car. Micromobility vehicles also require much less energy and take up less space. But we still have a long way to go to exploit the full potential offered by micromobility vehicles. Why is this such a big challenge? Because we lack the profitable infrastructure. Which is where XOO comes in, representing a quantum leap forward in sustainable mobility solutions. In addition to being economic to operate, XOO offers an efficient network of charging stations, instantly making sidewalks and other urban spaces much more pleasant to move around in.

We all love having the flexibility to move around

Micromobility is particularly popular as a so-called free-floating option – any vehicle can be rented, and as long as you stay within an area defined by the rental company, you can simply leave it where you end your journey. We currently see an issue with such free-floating rental systems in downtown areas: scooters are left strewn around outside residential and office buildings, as well as on bicycle and pedestrian paths. Not only does this clutter up urban cycling routes and pedestrian areas, it can be an impediment or even dangerous obstruction to traffic. What was intended to become a useful solution to transportation problems has quickly turned out to be a public nuisance, made worse by uncharged e-scooters lying around – obviously, no use to anyone.

XOO - A game-changer for micromobility

XOO is a network of smart charging stations that makes micromobility both uniquely sustainable and economically viable. Placing XOO charging points throughout cities makes it possible to charge scooters in decentralized locations – i.e. where users want to park them. The XOOnet is finally making micromobility fit for the future. Ideally, XOO charging stations can be positioned in all kinds of locations, within a one- or two-minute walking radius. Currently, 70% of journeys start and end in “non-central locations” – by which we mean not outside subway or train station entrances.

Happy communities. Happy providers. Happy users

The XOOnet keeps all kinds of people happy – the actual users of e-scooters, providers, and of course municipal authorities.

Benefits for municipal authorities:

It doesn’t take much effort to install a XOOnet of electric scooter charging stations – including the latest smart technology. Once it’s in place, the streets and sidewalks become more orderly. A good network also enables providers to run profitable services across a wider area.

Benefits for the providers of micromobility services:

Charging costs are reduced by 90%, with lower energy consumption and carbon emissions because fewer trucks are needed to pick up and drop off scooters. This also maximizes economic efficiency. XOO technology is already compatible with 95% of electric scooters, bikes, and mopeds, across all providers and manufacturers – no need to make modifications.

Benefits for users:

Incentives for joining in, wider availability of services, and potentially lower fees – making micromobility a much more appealing option for commuters.

Everything at a glance

XOO offers a network of public communication units that can be positioned in variety of useful locations. For municipal authorities, XOOnets are a useful way to share information with members of the public. For those conducting regional and national advertising campaigns, XOO is an opportunity to post special offers – even on a daily basis.

Successful pilot study

In October 2020, XOO entered into a collaboration agreement with Stella, a scooter sharing specialist from Stuttgart, Germany. Not only did the project go down extremely well with customers, everything ran smoothly, offering a variety of important benefits. We are currently expanding the XOOnet.
