As a result of the E-ENERGY lighthouse project, which was funded by Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Actions (BMWK), leading manufacturers of energy-relevant devices founded the EEBus Initiative e.V. in 2012. Since then, EEBUS has evolved from a funding project to a technical standard with commercial viability. The EEBUS vision, to advance science, research, and environmental protection through the unification and standardisation of interfaces, is successful, as evidenced by the solution’s widespread market acceptance as well as that of national and international policymakers, significant industrial associations, and global platforms.
More than 60 companies and associations are now members of EEBUS and about 10 full-time staff members work for the Initiative in the fields of specification engineering and association development and management. The Initiative’s headquarter is located in Cologne, and another office representation in Brussel.
Digitalisation of energy transition
Networking of international members
Specification documents free of charge
As a member of the EEBUS Initiative, companies benefit from the opportunity to integrate their own demands and requirements in the process of use case development prior to its release as a standard. The early involvement allows for an active participation in the technical development of the standard and to acquire a deep understanding of the concept of energy management and the use of EEBUS specifications. In addition, members benefit from first hand insights in standardisation activities on European level as well as from the cross-industry networking opportunities within the initiative. At the initiatives testing events and facilities members can carry out tests regarding the interoperability of their products to ensure their market-readiness. Finally, the EEBUS membership stands for front runners regarding energy transition as well as active contributors in the effort of decarbonisation and climate protection.
