Dynamic Wireless EV Charging to Be Deployed on a German Autobahn

Eurovia and Electreon have announced a project to demonstrate dynamic wireless electric vehicle (EV) charging on a German Autobahn.

As part of the 7.5 million EUR E|MPOWER project, the companies will integrate Electreon’s wireless electric road system (ERS) technology on a 1-kilometre section of an Autobahn in northern Bavaria.

ERS is an inductive charging technology that is directly integrated into the roadway to enable the contactless transfer of energy to driving and stationary vehicles.

This project follows an initial collaboration between the two companies, which enabled the successful construction of the inductive charging solution in Karlsruhe, Germany in 2021.

The E|MPOWER project will now showcase the wireless EV charging technology on a larger scale and use new construction techniques to decrease building costs and duration.

This demonstration aims to pave the way for future large-scale projects.

Andreas Wendt, CEO, Electreon Germany, said:

“The E|MPOWER project is a major step toward decarbonising transportation in Germany and, ultimately, the world. We look forward to collaborating with the consortium partners and joining forces with our partners from Eurovia following our past successful projects. Together with the consortium, Electreon is charging forward towards mass production and deployment capabilities.”

The E|MPOWER project is supported by Die Autobahn GmbH des Bundes and funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action.
