EFR GmbH works on projects funded by the European Fund for Regional Development. These include the following projects: DITour-EE The aim of the project is digital solutions for smart tourism through sector coupling of electromobility and energy. A detailed description can be found under  http://www.ditour-ee.de/ Within the project, EFR GmbH works on a specific charging infrastructure for the special requirements of the hotel and restaurant industry. The consortium includes EFR and the following companies and institutions: betterspace GmbH, Fraunhofer Institute for Energy Economics and Energy Systems (IEE), Kassel. Results of the funded project are OCPP 1.6, Local Offload Load Management, ISO 15118. Virtual parking garage store The aim of the project is a system solution for the management of semi-public charging points in multi-storey car parks through cost-effective charging technology, local load management, object-related virtualization, regional aggregation. The goal is interactive tariffing and flexible load provisioning. Within the project, EFR is working on the development of a specific charging technology that complies with the legal requirements of the law and its testing in the laboratory under real conditions. Besides EFR, the consortium includes the following companies and institutions: JustOn GmbH, Fraunhofer Institute for Optronics, System Technology and Image Evaluation IOSB, Ilmenau University of Technology, Erfurt Airport Weimar. Goals of the project work are:
  • New charging box for universal use
  • OCPP 2.0
  • Local charging load management
  • Legally compliant calibration of the charging box
reDesigN The theme of the funding project is "Resilience by Design for IoT data platforms using the example of distributed energy management TV: resilience at the field level. EFR works on the resilient field technology. Along with EFR the consortium also includes
Technical University Ilmenau Department of Databases & Information Systems
Technical University of Ilmenau Department of Software Engineering for Safety Critical Systems
Fraunhofer IOSB-AST
CUCULUS GmbH. Objectives of the funded project are:
  • Further development of existing products (EV charging boxes) with regard to ensuring the system functions and thus improving the quality of the equipment technology and improving the competitive situation,
  • Increase revenue by extending the ability of EV charging boxes to integrate into platforms to realize higher value energy management capabilities.

Following the takeover of all shares in HKW-Elektronik GmbH, Wutha-Farnroda (Thuringia) in December 2018, the Munich EFR recently completed the integration. Since June 2019 the Thuringian company is officially operated as EFR GmbH, location Wutha-Farnroda and represented by two managing directors, Mr. Robert Bergmann (Heasdquarters Munich) and Mr. Martin Eibl (Location Wutha-Farnroda). At the same time, the EFR Europäische Funk-Rundsteuerung GmbH was renamed EFR GmbH. EFR acquired its first stake in HKW Elektronik ten years ago and integrated the company into product development. This cooperation has intensified over the years. Today, the team at Wutha-Farnroda is not only active in electronics development and product management, but also manages logistics for all EFR meters. Production at the Thuringian site is also certified according to EU Directive 2014/32 / EU, Annex D, according to measurement and calibration law.

Visit us at E-world 2019 in Essen, Hall 2, booth 220. The new generation of basic meters will be presented. With the facelifting of the SGM-C2 and SGM-C4 meters, the second generation of the successful modern measuring systems as rotary and alternating current meters is already being launched on the market. The range is supplemented by the new counter SGM-DD, which will include new features such as integrated calendar / clock, load profiles, monthly feed rates, BAB adapters. Another topic will be presented: the modular software solution for the CLS management -Grid Control Suite - with new areas of application, challenges and opportunities. Possibilities of digital network control for active external market participants in the sense of the digitization law are shown. Our proven radio ripple control service provides reliable lighting control applications. Our Sensor Control product has been supplemented with advanced hardware.
The new software (operator stations) with enhanced security features that meet our customers' demands for ISO 27001 is already being introduced to the market and offered to existing customers. Inform yourself on our booth.

EFR is once again one of the 50 exhibitors and the main sponsor of the metering days this year, to be held on 23rd to 24th October in Fulda. The event is classified as "THE branch meeting" and offers a compact information platform on the subject of digitization of the energy transition. More than 600 participants are expected in Fulda.

EFR presents the device family for the Smart Grid consisting of a modern measuring device mMe, Smart Meter base meter, communication adapter, control box and SMGw(registered under certification number BSI-DSZ-CC-1000).

As a novelty, the modular software solution will be conceived in the CLS management "Grid Control Suite". The flexible middleware can be optimally positioned between the network control level, GWA and EMT (e.g. direct marketers and control boxes). Thus, the control center is relieved and network-critical switching tasks are accelerated. The solution is scalable and high-performing up to the volume rollout.

During the event, Dr. Ali Inan, Head of Smart Energy at EFR GmbH, shall in the "metering solutions forum" give a talk on "Highly secure, BSI-compliant distribution grid management".
EFR will use the metering days framework to present a webinar for active external market participants in the sense of the Digitization Law (direct marketers, VPP, wMSB, platform operators, gMSB and market players) and invite interested parties. It will deal with digital network control and its possibilities of use, the digital network control will be explained, areas of application, challenges and opportunities and a short demo of a popular network control tool will be shown.
