There is no Option but EnergyBus
Max Neupert, contact person for EnergyBus at the exhibition, was impressed by the manufacturers` rapid development in consciousness towards EnergyBus. "Unlike a few years ago, I hardly needed to convince anyone of EnergyBus. They knew that they will need the EnergyBus Standard. Some manufacturers even sent their component manufacturers/suppliers directly to us. According to the motto: our next bike will use EnergyBus. Please make yourselves at times clever and visit the EnergyBus exhibition."
The charging infrastructure EnergyBus pilot scheme and its Charge & Lock Cable were one of the big issues at the exhibition: "The high interest in public charging infrastructure was phenomenal. I spoke to visitors from Korea, Malaysia, Singapore and the USA."
