About EEBus Initiative e.V.
The EEBus Initiative e.V. networks the leading companies, associations
and stakeholders in the German and international energy, telecommunications and electrical industry. As a non-profit organization the EEBus Initiative drives the development and standardization of a technology-neutral
and interoperable connectivity-concept for the Smart Home together with
the KNX association. Through our combined strengths and competence
we open up a new interdisciplinary market for smart connectivity. Our
interoperability is based on a technology-neutral information layer and the
corresponding data models. Due to this we are able to implement varying domain-specific communication technologies. For IP based communication the EEBus Initiative develops the SHIP (Smart Home IP) Protocol. Furthermore the
interaction of devices within different use cases is defined. All specifications become part of international Smart Grid
and Smart Home standards (mainly IEC and CENELEC). To learn more, visit www.eebus.org. or our member list:
