An eventful year will soon end with many positive and unfortunately also the well-known international developments. 🚀 On a positive note, we are posting a big milestone towards CO2-neutral traffic: In September, for the first time, more cars with purely electric drives were registered than with diesel engines. 🔌 Accordingly, we see a rapidly growing need for solutions to enable charging in everyday places. We offer this solution and bring ultra fast charging to the area. Thank you for the exchange and the good cooperation in 2022! We look forward to walking this path together with you in 2023. 🎁 Until then, we wish you and your family a happy, peaceful holiday and a peaceful, successful New Year! Your Adaptive Balancing Power
The demand for ultra-fast energy storage and charging systems is growing rapidly. To respond to this trend, we have now successfully relocated and expanded our production site and offices from Darmstadt to Pfungstadt.
With the move to the new multifunctional building in the industrial area North-East in Pfungstadt, we have doubled our production area with options for further expansion.
The market for electric mobility and the necessary charging infrastructure is highly dynamic. In order to cope with this growth, we are strengthening ourselves with Kirsten Jahn.
Solution for a mobility turnaround in the countryside: public transport is now also becoming electric in the countryside
Medium-sized, commercial bus companies form an important pillar of local public transport (LPT) in rural areas. However, electrification along the route poses major challenges for power grid operators and transport companies. That’s why, together with a consortium from research and industry, we have started building a new type of storage and charging network for electric buses in rural areas. In Bensheim, a new type of pantograph fast-charging station (high-power charger) is being installed at the bus station (ZOB) to enable safe, economical and flexible intermediate charging of electric buses. The special feature: by using modern high-power flywheel energy storage system, the e-buses can also be charged on the route without having to extend the power grid.
How well the transition to e-mobility succeeds depends heavily on the charging infrastructure and, in particular, on the available charging speed. Commercial users of electric vehicles in particular are often dependent on short charging times, i.e. ultra-fast charging at as many charging points as possible. VarioPark projects and develops business parks with high sustainability standards. Residents, tenants and visitors should now have the opportunity to charge their electric vehicles in the parks in minutes instead of hours. That’s why VarioPark has opted for Adaptive Balancing Power’s ultra-fast charging system and is currently implementing a project in Frankenthal, Rhineland-Palatinate. Others are to follow.
Mobility is becoming increasingly electric and is contributing to the energy transition. However, the EU Clean Vehicles Directive also places new demands on public transport companies, particularly with regard to their electrical infrastructure.
Our colleague Florian Fröhlich will show how fast and easy route charging via pantograph can be implemented without a strong power connection and transformer at the 10th VDV AEE Symposium 2022 from July 5 to 6 in Berlin.
Smart Charge Boost: Adaptive Balancing Power introduces ultra-fast and flexible charging for e-vehicle fleets
More and more companies are converting their fleets to electric mobility – for economic, environmental, legal and social reasons. But also because many countries are planning to ban combustion engines and extend or introduce tax benefits for rechargeable vehicles. The challenge here is to always organize the charging processes for e-vehicles flexibly and in line with demand. At the “Fleet! Der Branchentreff” on June 1 and 2, 2022 in Düsseldorf, we will be presenting for the first time an all-in-one solution including a charging station for flexible and on-demand charging for company fleets.
Less than 4 weeks to go. Fleet! – The branch meeting starts on 01 June at Messe Düsseldorf GmbH and Adaptive Balancing Power is a part of it!
Look forward to the mobility solution for high availability, energy efficiency and FastCharging at your location for the commercial e-vehicle fleet.
Where? “Fleet! – Der Branchentreff,” Düsseldorf, booth G8B.

We have and live a vision – what is behind it?
– 𝐄-𝐌𝐨𝐛𝐢𝐥𝐢𝐭𝐲: We support e-mobility. Regardless of whether it is a car, bus or truck, for example. For this, we enable the necessary ultra-fast charging infrastructure everywhere. In the city as well as in the countryside, in the company as well as in the public.
– 𝐅𝐚𝐬𝐭 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐠𝐢𝐧𝐠: Our focus is on maximum charging power. In the shortest possible time, vehicle batteries should be recharged.
– 𝐍𝐨𝐰: We don’t want to wait until 2030. We don’t want to let time pass. We act and enable – now.
We are currently entering a new growth phase. To continue this, we are now a member of the Bundesverband eMobilität e.V. (BEM) and are strengthening our own network.
Adaptive Balancing Power is growing and we are happy to welcome Florian Fröhlich as our new Senior Sales Manager. Florian Fröhlich joins ABP from a leading system house for new mobility. As Key Account Manager, he already gained nationwide experience in the implementation of mobility and charging infrastructure projects. Before that, he was responsible for marketing and sales at a start-up for e-car sharing.
Since this month we are a member of the Bundesverband Energiespeicher Systeme e.V. (short form: BVES). Together with the other members of the association, we advocate efficient and non-discriminatory promotion of energy storage systems in the charging infrastructure. In addition, we strive for fast and transparent approval processes with network operators in order to be able to build charging infrastructure more quickly. The goal is clear: according to the National Charging Infrastructure Control Center, one million charging points are to be created by 2030. Energy storage systems in various forms will make a major contribution to achieving this goal. This will make electromobility sustainably possible for everyone in the city and in the countryside.

The future of mobility is electric. How fast the transition from the internal combustion engine to e-mobility succeeds depends on the charging infrastructure. With our high-performance energy storage system, we enable high power charging even in places where the necessary power supply is not available. Last Tuesday, Darmstadt’s Mayor (Bürgermeister) Jochen Partsch was also informed about this and was able to test the high power charging solution directly in action.
The need for high-frequency ultra-fast charging is especially high in local public transport. As an alternative to depot charging, where enormous battery capacities have to be installed in the buses, route charging involves charging the bus by pantograph during passenger boarding or alighting times or, for example, at terminal loops over a CCS plug connection.
After a year of intensive development work and planning, we can proudly announce our entry into the electromobility market. The Adaptive AMPERAGE flywheel storage system makes ultra-fast charging at up to 300 kW possible almost anywhere in a manner that supports the grid. With this move, we are playing our part in ensuring the rapid expansion of electromobility, whether in rural or urban areas.
In August 2016, Adaptive Balancing Power GmbH was founded under the direction of Hendrik Schaede-Bodenschatz and Nicolai Meder as a spin-off from the Technical University of Darmstadt. The goal of the company is to commercialize 4th generation flywheel mass storage devices, which our founders had been researching since 2009.
Shortly after IAA Mobility, Munich again becomes the center of attention at the international trade fair for all things electromobility and charging infrastructure. Adaptive Balancing Power will be present on Stand B6.534. We look forward to seeing you there!
Adaptive Balancing Power presents its high-performance energy storage system AMPERAGE HPC-Booster for electro mobility
Fast charging in the time it takes to drink a coffee: Adaptive Balancing Power presents one-of-a-kind flywheel high-performance storage at the Power2Drive e-mobility trade fair.
The AMPERAGE Charge100 allows electric vehicles to be charged for travelling the next 60 odd miles in just a few minutes using a standard 63 amp high-voltage connection. Charging the vehicle almost fully takes about as long as a daily supermarket purchase (20 to 30 minutes).
