RheinSharing GbR

The aim of RheinSharing is to enable more efficient and climate-neutral mobility in Cologne’s city centre. By means of mobility stations equipped with charging stations for various electric vehicles, hundreds of vehicles are supplied with green energy every day with the help of hydroelectric power harnessed from the Rhine.

The company emerged from an interdisciplinary student initiative of the Technical University (TH) Cologne. The six automotive engineering and architecture students had won second place in the Ford Fund Smart Mobility Challenge in March this year with their idea to harvest renewable energy from the flow of the Rhine River and use it directly to power mobility stations to power electric vehicles.
