About the LEV Components Special Exhibition
The LEV Components Special Exhibition is a new service of the ExtraEnergy Services GmbH & Co. KG which was founded in September 2013. The touring exhibition is dedicated to make technology and products visible all over the world.
The main activities of ExtraEnergy Services GmbH & Co. KG are special exhibitions at all relevant trade shows worldwide, and the development of a business park for manufacturers of light electric vehicles at the Schleiz location in Thuringia, Germany.
The founders and directors of ExtraEnergy Services GmbH & Co. KG are Hannes Neupert and Jean Chen who is in charge of the Asian market.
Hannes Neupert has been heavily involved with the concept of electric mobility since 1982. In 1989 he was a co-founder of Stuttgart Solar e.V. and of the Solar Bike Working Group. In 1992 he published the first German-language market overview of electric bikes. Since 1993 he has conducted electric bike product tests as part of the ExtraEnergy project and since the foundation of ExtraEnergy e.V. he has been its Chairman. In 1995 he began the organisation and implementation of the international LEV Conference and he also organised additional supporting programmes for leading cycle shows on electric bike sector subjects. He studied Industrial Design at the Hochschule für Kunst und Design in Halle/Saale, Germany. From 2001 onwards he developed, as part of a collaboration with Deutsche Post AG, the foundations of EnergyBus and BATSO, two standards organisations on whose management committees he has also been active since their foundation. From 2014 he has represented the German mirror committee DKE/GAK 353.0. and EnergyBus e.V. in the IEC/ISO/TC69/JPT61851-3 Joint Commission, which is developing technical standards for charging infrastructure for light electric vehicles. In consultant roles Hannes Neupert has also made a decisive impact on the pedelec industry: in 1993 he persuaded Yamaha to become active in Europe, in what was at the time an effectively non-existent electric bike market. In 1996 he convinced Panasonic Cycle Tech to export their pedelec drive systems to Europe and from 2004 to 2008 he encouraged Bosch to make pedelec drive systems. Hannes Neupert has also worked tirelessly to convince numerous cycle manufacturers take pedelecs seriously to the extent of at least attempting sales on a trial basis.
For Jean Chen the development between 1995 and 1999 of a charging methodology to extend the life of various battery types despite fast charging was his introduction to the light electric vehicle sector. Then from 1999 to 2005 he lead the Chinese subsidiary of the American consultancy company Cycle Electric and he developed a set of service guidelines for light electric vehicles. Alongside this he also founded his first company, Electric Vehicle Maintenance Service Co., the first of its type in China, working with five electric bike brands and an electric bike fleet for the Papa John’s Pizza delivery service. In 2002 he joined the Chinese cycle industry association and worked as translator for international visitors and for China Cycle Magazine. From 2004 to 2007 he worked for BionX. In 2005 he came to ExtraEnergy in Tanna for a study placement, and in 2006 he gave a presentation on his experiences of electric bike repair servicing in China as part of the LEV Conference in Taiwan. Since 2011 he has been an active member of the ISO TC149 SC1 standards group for the cycle sector and in 2013 he became co-founder and director of ExtraEnergy Services GmbH & Co. KG.
