Connected Kerb to pilot wireless charging pads in England and Scotland

Charging station manufacturer Connected Kerb, in partnership with Munich-based Magment, will begin trials of a new wireless charging system in Greater London, the English Midlands and Scotland this year. The company will install its induction pads on residential streets, at car parks and at taxi ranks.

On-street charging is a hot topic in London, where an estimated 78% of residents have no private parking. Various companies have proposed solutions, including a startup called, which makes a charger that can be installed in lamp posts.

“Induction charging will become the norm over the coming few years, and for good reason,” said Connected Kerb Chief Executive Chris Pateman-Jones. “It’s comparable in performance to traditional charging, however, it’s more convenient and even more simple. Also, induction opens up electric vehicles for disabled people, who are currently excluded from EVs by trailing cables and accessibility.”

Pateman-Jones also claims that “vehicle manufacturers are increasingly including induction charging technology in their new models.” (He didn’t name any OEMs that have announced plans to offer induction charging features.)
