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.
