Every kilowatt hour matters.

STILL Smart Energy Solutions.

Make the most of every kilowatt hour

Energy efficiency is more important than ever - especially in intralogistics. When scaling your operations, cost optimisation and efficient use of resources are among the key levers. At STILL, we understand these challenges. But we also know that conditions vary. Therefore, we believe there is no “one size fits all” solution. With all our expertise, we help you find the best solution for your requirements - and support you with a whole package of intelligent products and services that enable you to intelligently reduce and control the consumption and operating costs of your intralogistics. From a wide range of advanced and efficient energy systems, through hardware and software solutions for smart energy management, to comprehensive energy consultancy. So you make the most of every kilowatt hour.



Energy consulting that takes you further

Together, let's take a look at the total energy consumption of your processes and identify potential savings. Our experts provide holistic advice. And for us, consulting is 80% listening: What is expected of you and where do you want to go? What are your existing conditions and what is your experience? What hurdles do you face? This enables us to better understand your needs and offer optimal solutions for your intralogistics fleet - including complete intralogistics energy infrastructure concepts.

The following five criteria can be named for the decision:

  • Vehicle availability: How much energy can the energy system provide and for how long?
    To what extent is the operational availability of the vehicles limited, e.g. by standstill times due to battery changes, charging processes or maintenance work?
  • Infrastructure: Each energy system requires a specific infrastructure, e.g. for space for charging stations, storage, maintenance and the effort required to set up the energy supply.
  • Investment costs: The costs up to commissioning, e.g. for batteries and setting up the necessary infrastructure.
  • Operating costs: Ongoing costs, e.g. for maintenance and repair, but also energy costs and energy consumption.
  • Sustainability: What potential does which energy system have, how long can it be used and to what extent can CO2 emissions be completely avoided.

Optimum energy systems for your tasks

Work with the best energy system for your requirements. Depending on your tasks, handling performance and other criteria, we offer you the optimum technology. From proven lead-acid technology to highly efficient lithium-ion technology and pioneering fuel cells. Innovative battery charging systems are an integral part of our energy solutions. When needed, our LPG and diesel technology provides the most efficient performance. We work with you to find the right solution for you - with an eye on the entire lifecycle.

Lead-acid

Lead-acid batteries are useful for the use of a few vehicles with few working hours. Overall, this is an established, reliable and well usable energy system.

Li-Ion Teaser

Li-Ion

The use of Li-Ion batteries is recommended for consistently high and constant energy requirements in multi-shift operation. With STILL Li-Ion technology an upgrade of 30% better energy utilisation can be achieved. This not only protects the environment but also significantly reduces the company's energy costs.

Fuel cell

This energy system is ideally suited for continuous, intensive use in multi-shift operation with more than 1000 operating hours per year. As the cleanest energy system for driving industrial trucks, the fuel cell is still little established, but is considered a future system for green intralogistics.

Comparison of energy systems in intralogistics


Vehicle availability

Lead-acid

  • approx. 1 shift depending on vehicle type and application
  • at higher usage max 5 hours
  • 8 hours charging means approx. 6 hours driving
  • no intermediate charging > battery change (5-15 min)
  • high maintenance
  • decreasing performance during operation

Li-Ion

  • 1 hour charging means approx. 3 hours driving
  • intermediate charging possible
  • no maintenance required
  • constant power during operation

Fuel cell

  • 1 tank filling allows up to approx. 8 hours of use
  • no standing/charging times > refuelling in only 2-3 min
  • Regular maintenance
  • constant performance during operation

Infrastructure

Lead-acid

  • Charging stations
  • Chargers
  • Interchangeable batteries
  • Battery changing device
  • Water tanks
  • Air extraction system
  • Considerable space requirement

Li-Ion

  • Low requirements
  • Charging infrastructure + only 1 battery + onboard charger
  • Low space requirements

Fuel cell

  • Fuel cell (Battery Replacement Module)
  • Filling stations
  • Hydrogen storage
  • Hydrogen delivery or production (electrolyser)
  • Space outside the storage facility can be used

Investment costs

Lead-acid

  • Low acquisition costs

Li-Ion

  • high acquisition costs, tendency decreasing
  • Longer battery life

Fuel cell

  • High investment costs (factor 4 to 5 compared to lead-acid batteries)
  • Funding possibilities

Operating costs

Lead-acid

  • Energy costs
  • Maintenance costs
  • Battery replacement costs (time)
  • Space costs

Li-Ion

  • 30 % reduced energy costs
  • no maintenance costs
  • low space costs
  • Intelligent energy management / loading management possible

Fuel cell

  • Current high H2 costs (10-12 €/kg hydrogen, as of Sept. 2021) > Especially transport costs

Sustainability

Lead-acid

  • Exploited technology
  • environmentally harmful substances
  • demanding recycling with high energy costs

Li-Ion

  • Continuous further development
  • Efficiency increase and reduction of acquisition costs to be expected
  • Problematic raw materials > new composition in development
  • Tried and tested structures

Fuel cell

  • Deployable technology, but no established infrastructure yet
  • no rare earths
  • truly green, through green H2
  • Political development still uncertain

Optimum energy systems for your tasks

Realise significant savings potential in your day-to-day operations. We can help you do this with our intelligent hardware and software solutions for energy management. Our Smart Energy Unit ensures the most efficient charging processes. In addition, the Blue-Q autopilot achieves energy savings of up to 20% combined with a perfectly balanced performance. We help you to forecast and integrate your energy requirements, to limit peak loads, and to feed in self-generated energy, e.g. from a photovoltaic system.

Optimised costs: Cost-intensive power peaks are avoided thanks to smart power distribution and the definition of charging time slots.

Transparency: Clear visualisation of all relevant charging data in one user friendly dashboard.

Energy efficiency: Optimised resource utilisation thanks to a smart charging management algorithm.

Energy systems in the context of green intralogistics

Solving transport tasks with the lowest possible consumption of valuable resources is one of the great challenges for future-oriented intralogistics solutions. The aim is to use capital, energy, labour and time as profitably as possible. An essential prerequisite for sustainable management is circularity - in other words, the cycle of raw materials. The approach of a sustainable circular economy - among other things by refurbishing used trucks - is just as much anchored in STILL's DNA as the ZERO emissions mission, with which we have been noticeably reducing CO2 emissions in intralogistics for many years.
