About IEA HEV Task 23
Task 23 is a political mirror group of the IEC/ISO Standardisation Group. Its objective is to define the interests of national and regional governmental public bodies in their procurement of cycle and light electric vehicle (LEV) parking and charging infrastructure, and of cycle hire facilities, and to bring these areas under the scope of standardisation. The results of Task 23´s work will be best commercial practice recommendations for governments at national and regional level, with concrete recommendations for requirement definitions in tendering documents for parking and charging infrastructure, and for shared vehicles to extend the options for local public transport.

About EnergyBus e.V.
EnergyBus springs originally from an initiative of Deutsche Post AG and the state-supported Taiwanese research institute ITRI in 2003. After four years of development, in 2007 EnergyBus e.V. was founded. The communication protocol is based on CANopen 454 from the Nurember-based CAN in Automation e.V.. Since 2012 EnergyBus e.V. has been actively working under the framework of Joint Commission IEC/ISO/TC69/JPT61851-3 on the implementation of this communication protocol into an international harmonising standard. For further details please visit: 

About ExtraEnergy e.V.
ExtraEnergy e.V. has carried out independent e-bike and pedelec tests since 1992. Since then the organisation has established itself as the most influential information, user protection and promotional organisation for light electric vehicles (LEVs) worldwide. The founders realised from the start that these vehicles need to be experienced first-hand. Since 1997 the Test IT Track has been on the road, and today has three units for the Test IT Show. ExtraEnergy is also rooted at its test facility in Tanna, where 23 years of test reports and LEV history are on display at the LEV Museum. Other services on offer include presentations and exhibitions at trade and public shows, plus information distribution with the assistance of correspondents worldwide. Alongside our physical presence, provides a treasure-house of information online. With support from the European Union and the IEA (International Energy Agency), in 2012 the Go Pedelec! Handbook was published in German, English, Dutch, Hungarian, Czech, Italian, Spanish and Chinese, including much new information and best practice studies for electric-assist two-wheelers. As founding members of the EnergyBus and BATSO (Battery Safety Organisation) associations, ExtraEnergy is also active on both the ISO (International Standards Organisation) Standards Committee, with a focus on mechanical standardisation, and on the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission), and so helps set safety and communication standards for LEVs worldwide.
