Electreon, a developer of wireless and in-road wireless EV charging technology, will deploy its technology in a public wireless road project in Germany, which will power a public electric bus.
In collaboration with EnBW, a provider of EV charging infrastructure, Electreon will be deploying 1 km of Electric Road System (ERS) along a stretch of road in the city of Balingen, together with two static charging stations.
This project follows a successful pilot of Electreon’s technology in the city of Karlsruhe, where an electrified road was installed at the EnBW training center, powering a local public bus at peak hours.
Electreon will receive up to €3.2 million in public funding for the project.
“The aim of this project is to open up wireless charging to the public in Germany and develop a tool that will assist public transportation planners in choosing where to install the inductive infrastructure for a specific town or region,” said Dr. Andreas Wendt, CEO of Electreon Germany. “We have already shown in our joint Karlsruhe project with EnBW how effective, safe and easy to deploy wireless dynamic charging is.”
