Your way to zero-emission

pepper ecosystem is the holistic solution to transform the diesel economy into the electric mobility era: With customized solutions for the provision of green energy at competitive prices, necessary charging infrastructure and load management, vehicles, services and additional trainings or sustainability reports – all bundled in a subscription model with a fixed price per kilometer over contract term.

Price

operate your fleet from
under 1 EUR per km

Depending on the mileage and runtime of your vehicles, fleet operation starts from under 1€ per kilometer. This includes:

  • Power
  • Vehicles
  • Charging infrastructure
  • Service and maintenance
  • Operation
  • Planning, training, and consulting
  • A strong community

Time

In the pepper ecosystem we reduce downtime to an absolute minimum by providing you with:

  • preventive maintenance and services
  • 24/7 support
  • OTA updates
  • remote support
  • and our Flying Doctors

Sustainability

In line with climate goals

Our solution looks at the complete mobility ecosystem, from power generation, power supply, and efficient vehicle operation, to recycling and 2nd life of individual ecosystem components.

The Problem

Today, traditional fleet operatiors face four major problems:

Financing

Currently, electric commercial vehicles are comparatively still expensive. In addition to redesigning the depot, existing workshops also need to be re-equipped. Furthermore, there is investment needed for suitable charging infrastructure.

Complexity

The interaction of vehicle, charging infrastructure, energy procurement, and service & maintenance requires a completely new ecosystem with many stakeholders. For the smooth operation of zero-emission vehicles, the company’s own employees must therefore be trained.

Uncertainty

Today, it is more difficult than ever to forecast the development of energy prices. In addition, the switch to modern zero-emission powertrains does not allow any experience to be gained from historical data. In particular, residual values of vehicles and batteries are difficult to estimate today.

Emissions

Operators of commercial vehicle fleets are obligated to switch to low-emission or zero-emission means of transport under the terms of the Paris Climate Agreement. The Clean Vehicles Directive (CVD) stipulates for example that 45% of new purchases of city buses must be emission-free (in the period 2021 – 2025). (Source)

Green energy

For maximum CO2 savings and sustainability, we always provide you with access to sustainable energy sources.

Energy procurement

By trading on the European energy exchange, we procure the energy volumes based on the forecast of your circulation planning and ensure the best possible price for your vehicle fleet despite a volatile energy market.

Energy distribution and storage

We fi nd the appropriate and resilient concept for you. Effi ciencies and availability strategies are optimized and adapted to your property and your operational processes.

Depot

Manage your vehicle scheduling effectively with us and harmonize your energy procurement processes and load management.

Service

With our 24/7 service, regular updates and the provision of back-up vehicles, we guarantee the highest possible availability of your vehicles.

Operation

Smart energy management and pepper‘s own telematics services ensure maximum effi ciency, range and cost savings.

Planning, training and consulting

On request, we will guide you as a main contractor through all phases of the transformation process to electrify your fl eets, support you in the topics of subsidies or GHG quota and off er advanced training opportunities for your employees.

pepper Community

With pepper ecosystem, you become part of a worldwide community for zero-emission commercial vehicles and benefi t from low prices, useful contacts, valuable know-how and many other advantages.

Individual as you business

In the pepper ecosystem you will find the solution tailored to your needs. 

Better together

We aim at productive cooperation, for maximum efficiency and sustainability instead of rigid business relationships.

Modularity

You choose exactly the components of the pepper ecosystem that you need for your operation. This means no unnecessary costs and efforts for you.

Know-How

In the pepper ecosystem, we rely on your experience. You can continue to contribute your know-how and we take things forward together.

Competence

At the same time, we further expand your competence and knowledge regarding electromobility and sustainable operation.

WHY CHANGE? WHY PEPPER ECOSYSTEM?

In short, the pepper ecosystem overcomes all the challenges faced by fleet operators on their way to modern, competitive, and sustainable operation – thanks to five core principles on which our ecosystem is built.

Intelligent energy procurement

Electromobility only makes sense with 100% green electricity. But the electricity demand in the transport sector cannot usually be met by generating electricity at the depot itself. In order to limit the cost of electricity requirements, intelligent procurement of green energy is of enormous importance.

Local value creation

In line with the customer-focus concept, the aim of the pepper ecosystem is to create local added value at your premises. Together with regional partners, the depot can be equipped with the appropriate charging infrastructure. If necessary, your employees will be trained to handle and service electric vehicles and continue their jobs.

Focus on sustainability

By taking a holistic view of all components of the ecosystem, pepper achieves the highest level of sustainability. Previous solutions focus on the sustainability of individual components of a product. pepper, though, looks at the entire mobility ecosystem, from power generation, provision of electricity, and efficient operation of vehicles to the recycling and second life of individual ecosystem components. pepper thus guarantees a CO2-free operation over the entire term of the contract, while at the same time ensuring maximum availability.

Cost benefits

The pepper ecosystem’s holistic approach results in significant cost benefits. At the same time, your business can be carried out in the usual way, thanks to the help of extensive digital analyses of the vehicle and its systems. In addition, dependencies are minimized so that uncertainties regarding future price developments, e.g. for energy and raw materials, can be avoided through the ecosystem subscription model with a pre-defined price per kilometer.

Customer centric

The customer is at the center of the pepper ecosystem – your experience is complemented in a targeted manner by pepper know-how. You can design the ecosystem individually to your needs, thanks to a single point of contact avoid the complexity of switching to electromobility, and so concentrate fully on your core business. Together with other like-minded people in the pepper community, the greatest possible contribution to sustainability can be achieved.
