Searching for public bike parking management strategies? EnergyBus is the solution. LEV Conference will inform on 3 Ocotober 2014 at INTERMOT in Cologne, Germany.

Parking space management using EnergyBus

To cope with the increasing demand for bicycle parking space, new innovative and space-saving systems are needed.

Therefore, the Senat Department for Urban Development and Environment in Berlin is planning to work on a strategy.

"The strategy will include e-mobility (E-Bikes, Pedelecs) and rental management", indicates the press publication of the Senat Department for Urban Development and Environment in Berlin.

Parking space management using EnergyBus
Hannes Neupert (Executive Director of EnergyBus) explained: “With the release of CiA 454 there is nothing to prevent the widespread roll-out of charging and locking infrastructure for Light Electric Vehicles (LEVs).
The way is now also clear for parking space management using EnergyBus. This means charging facilities which transcend particular implementations or manufacturers, classification of all types of vehicle via identification numbers, digital theft prevention aided by the Charge & Lock Cable, and optional charging of parking facility usage fees.
Hire systems need no longer be tied to a single manufacturer. Vehicle suppliers can be changed, or fleets extended to better serve the needs of users, for example with vehicles for transport of children, for deliveries, for sports and leisure, and especially for everyday transport use.
And this will apply even in ten or twenty years’ time. So a guarantee of investment security has now been given.”
