Wireless charging specialist Electreon has announced a strategic collaboration with Jacobs, a global provider of technical professional services. The companies will join forces on selected wireless EV charging projects for fleet operators across the US, including city and state authorities.
The two companies are already cooperating on a project to implement a public in-road charging system. In February, Electreon was awarded a Michigan Department of Transportation contract for a dynamic wireless charging pilot in downtown Detroit—a project supported by Jacobs, Ford, NextEnergy and others.
Electreon’s patented technology has been integrated with a wide range of vehicles—the company collaborates with auto manufacturers including Renault, Stellantis, Iveco and Volkswagen.
Jacobs recently acquired mobility analytics pioneer StreetLight Data, and entered into a strategic relationship with Microgrid Labs, a software and consulting company specializing in planning commercial fleet electrification and microgrids.
“This collaboration with Jacobs marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter as Electreon increases our presence across the US,” said Oren Ezer, co-founder and CEO of Electreon. “Aligning ourselves with Jacobs allows Electreon to continuously realize opportunities for growth and expansion.”
“Continuing to collaborate with Electreon supports Jacobs’ focus on innovation,” said Jacobs VP and Global Transportation Market Director Patrick King. “Jacobs is committed to providing our transportation clients with access to innovative, technology-enabled solutions for the specific challenges they face—from congestion mitigation to carbon emission reduction, to full fleet electrification.”
