The eTaxi Austria project for testing automated conductive charging technology for e-taxis directly at taxi ranks is becoming concrete: Before pilot operation starts, a project location has now been realised at the Wien Energie site at the Simmering power plant in order to implement various application scenarios in practice.
Hubject has entered into a cooperation with Ultra-Fast Charging Venture Scandinavia. The 48 fast charging parks of the joint venture between E.On and Clever in Denmark, Norway and Sweden will be connected to Hubject's e-roaming platform intercharge.
WiTricity has licensed its inductive charging technology to Delta Electronics, an agreement that allows Delta to build and sell wireless charging systems for a wide range of industrial applications such as automated guided vehicles and electric forklifts.
With OVAL, a project recently came to an end that navigated very closely along a central chapter in the history of electromobility and that has a significant impact on current market events. The project investigated how the ad hoc charging at charging stations required by the EU and its billing in compliance with calibration law can be implemented. Click here for the project review.
A new research project at RWTH Aachen University is dedicated to dynamic, inductive charging. Specifically, the scientists are developing concepts and material systems for energy transfer between electric vehicles and the road and are exploring integration into the infrastructure.
