con|energy invests in the US-based company ZeroMission, whose software solution pragmatically, simply and reliably reduces the costs and complexity of operating electric bus and electric truck fleets.
ZeroMission is focused on helping fleet operators succeed in the transition from fossil-fuel to zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) and making fleet operations scalable and financially attractive. As a strategic investor, Essen-based con|energy is leading the current funding round for ZeroMission.
With the electrification of private and company-owned cars already well advanced, the next big step in electromobility comes with the electrification of bus and freight transport. Electrification offers fleet operators significant potential for operational efficiencies and emission reductions, but also requires high investments and innovative operational solutions.
The solution developed by ZeroMission maximizes return on investment and enables a scalable business model. The software synchronizes all critical operating data from the EV eco-system onto one platform, generating real time alerts for vehicles, chargers and energy operations, alongside a suite of AI based decision support tools.
con|energy CEO Roman Dudenhausen sees ZeroMission's product as a key factor for the electrification of buses and trucks: "Fleet managers need a solution for the implementation and operation of this new technology to optimize their costs and thus be able to transition their business to zero-emission mobility. With ZeroMission, this solution is now available. With its pragmatic approach, ZeroMission fits perfectly with our focus on energy and mobility transition."
Founder and CEO of ZeroMission Leah O'Dwyer adds: "We are very pleased to have secured con|energy, a renowned energy and electromobility expert, with a unique and extensive network, as our lead investor for this round. Working closely together with a clear focus on highest quality products and operational excellence, our mission to make EV operations cost effective, simple and reliable is already underway.
