The Pioneer Park Hanau

Electromobility showcase project

A milestone for housing construction and for GP JOULE. Pioneer Park Hanau is an innovative concept by DSK|BIG Group for creating sustainable affordable housing. Around 1,600 residential units will be built on the 50-hectare site of the former Pioneer barracks by 2024. In future, up to 5,000 people will be able to move into single-family, semi-detached and terraced houses, new types of chain bungalows and city villas as well as multi-storey flats. Charging infrastructure for electric mobility included.



Phase 1 - Charging infrastructure concept


The DSK|BIG Group commissioned GP JOULE in 2019 with the conceptual planning and implementation of electromobility for all residential units. The aim is to provide the charging infrastructure to promote the use of electric vehicles. At least 25 % of the approximately 4,000 private parking spaces will be pre-equipped for operation with wallboxes on the grid side.


Up to twelve e-mobility stations with 46 AC charging stations and 8 DC charging stations as well as sharing services for residents and visitors are planned. Up to 186 e-vehicles (54 e-cars, 66 e-bikes and 66 e-cargo bikes) will be available for use once the large-scale project is complete.


In addition to the charging infrastructure, our concept for Pioneer Park Hanau also includes


  • Energy management
  • Neighbourhood app/software solutions for e-mobility and sharing
  • Grid design and electrical planning
  • Design development and customisation for each station location
  • Integration of higher-level  transport concepts


An inspiring project to create sustainable living space together with Stadtwerke Hanau, Hanau Netz and the Frauenhofer Gesellschaft.



Phase 2 - Implementing electromobility


The ground-breaking ceremony has taken place and the construction work is already in full swing. GP JOULE CONNECT will implement the charging infrastructure, including the delivery of up to 700 charging stations and 15 sharing mobility stations, including civil engineering and all electrical engineering work over the next three to four years.

"We have designed an intelligent LLEMS for the large number of charging points, which prevents the network from overloading by controlling the charge load in the neighbourhood. It also makes the charging process maximally efficient.”
