Which innovations will have a sustainable influence in the marketplace?
2014-05-28 (Angela Budde)

The open day at ExtraEnergy e.V. brought together EnergyBus-compatible products such as the Stromer ST2 and EnergyTubes. Visitors gained a glimpse of how the future, networked by EnergyBus, will look.

Which innovations will have a sustainable influence in the marketplace?

The latest EnergyBus-compatible products and information about Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs), such as pedelecs and e-bikes, all captivated visitors to the open day at ExtraEnergy e.V..

EnergyBus interactive


The first communication-enabled vehicle, the Stromer ST2, was on hand at the ExtraEnergy e.V. open day for test riding. Michael Jaeger (Account Manager Germany at myStromer AG) had brought a total of eight vehicles with him to Tanna: seven of the ST1, and one ST2.
The Stromer ST2 is networked via the EnergyBus communication standard both internally and with its charger, as well as to other devices such as mobile phones via Bluetooth, to the internet via GSM and for precise satellite-aided location via GPS. Because all of these communication channels are available, operations such as software updates or locking the vehicle are possible over the internet.

So which innovations will have a sustainable influence in the marketplace?
In his technical presentation Hannes Neupert (Chairman, ExtraEnergy e.V.) highlighted technologies which will change the world radically. Following up this theme, Michael Jaeger presented Stromer’s cloud-based ‘OMNI’ platform, and Johannes Dörndorfer (CEO ROPA engineering GmbH) explained EnergyTubes, the energy storage system with swarm intelligence based on the EnergyBus protocol.

Further information on EnergyTubes:

All questions about EnergyBus implementation and training were answered by Torsten Gedenk (CEO emtas GmbH).

From bike mechanics to bike mechatronics
Alexander Feller (Training and Development, Diamant Fahrradwerke GmbH) visited the open day out of both professional and personal interest. Personally, he was keen to visit the LEV (Light Electric Vehicle) Museum in Tanna. His professional interest was in ExtraEnergy’s dealer training courses, and in how they might impart enhanced knowledge to his trainees. This is highly relevant, because in the near future there will no longer be training for the “Two-wheeler Mechanic: Bicycle Specialist” qualification. Instead, given the rapid ride of the pedelec, this qualification will be replaced by a new professional title: “Two-wheeler Mechatronics: Bicycle Specialist”. As standardization becomes more and more important, EnergyBus should be an important part of this training.
