Israeli electric vehicle tech developer ElectReon Wireless has signed a memorandum of understanding with German energy company EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG (EnBW), CTech by Calcalist reported on Sunday.
The purpose of the collaboration is to demonstrate the company’s electric charging technology to decision-makers in Germany, according to electronics and tech news site Tech Time (Hebrew.)
Founded in 2013, ElectReon developed a wireless electrification system for electric vehicles to charge them while they’re on the road. The system uses copper coils, developed by the company, placed under the middle lane of the road. The coils would be covered by the pavement and powered by an underground system with charging performed by a receiver or multiple receivers installed under the car.
Under the terms of the agreement with EnBW, ElectReon will carry out three electric charging demonstration projects in Germany using its electric road infrastructure. EnBW will implement ElectReon’s tech on a private road, and later, on a public road. The first demonstration will take place in early 2021. An electric road segment will be installed in the EnBW complex.
