In July FRIWO became an official member of the EnergyBus organization. This joint venture commits itself to the setup of a uniform charging infrastructure for electric bikes, Pedelecs and other LEVs (Light Electric Vehicles). By means of a standardized connector and the corresponding CiA-454 communication protocol the individual components of LEVs are to communicate with each other cross-technological.
Such a technical solution allows a uniform charging infrastructure. Long distance cycling would no longer require a vendor-dependent charger for the bike, the cyclist could use charging stations in public places like city centers or cafes.
