Germany has launched a new project to install wireless charging technology on public roads. This technology will allow electric vehicles, including commercial and passenger cars, to be charged while driving. The first test of this technology will take place on a bus route in Balingen.
This innovative project aims to make electric transport more convenient and affordable for everyone.
“The project in Balingen shows how innovative and consistent we are in promoting electromobility in Germany. We have a holistic approach and want to make wireless charging technically suitable for German public transport. It also includes convincing authorities, grid operators, bus operators and the general public of our capabilities,” said Dr. Maximilian Arnold.
This technology allows for both dynamic and static charging of car batteries, meaning that electric vehicles can be charged while driving or stationary.
This technology not only reduces the need for high-capacity batteries, but also helps to reduce range issues and enable fast and safe charging of electric vehicles.Electreon is working with utilities and fleet operators to make it possible for government, commercial and off-grid fleets to transition to electricity at low
“As a leading supplier and driver of innovation in charging infrastructure, we are delighted to be part of this exciting project with partners such as Electreon and the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology,” — added Arnold.
“The aim of this project is not only to make wireless charging available to the public in Germany. Other important aspects include the development and use of a tool to help public transport planners determine where to install inductive infrastructure for a particular city or region. We have already shown in our joint project in Karlsruhe with EnBW how effective, safe and easy to deploy wireless dynamic charging is. We hope this is the start of many more projects on public and private roads in Germany,” — said Dr. Andreas Wendt, CEO of Electreon Germany GmbH.
