ElectRoad - Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer (DWPT) Solutions5 years ago - Renewable Energy, Environment - Israel - 753 views
The multi-billion dollar public transit bus industry is under increasing regulatory and public policy pressure to adopt clean transportation solutions that will reduce CO2 emissions and dependence on oil without compromising the fleet’s service, and yet curbing the rise of operating costs.
Electric mobility can fulfill these desires.
The common approach today is an electric vehicle based on a battery. The main challenge concerning this approach is the limitation of the energy storage capacity. Thus, the battery weighs 1/3 of the vehicle, reduces the potential use space, costs almost half and encompasses range limitation. Topping on that, the costly need to replace the batteries every few years only decrease the potential penetration of electric public transportation.
ElectRoad takes a different approach in dealing with these challenges by developing a unique technology that powers the vehicle wirelessly from the road while driving.By that, ElectRoad removed the energy source from the vehicle, reduced the cost and weight dramatically and eliminated the range anxiety.
ElectRoad is expected to pave the way for the future E-mobility.
ElectRoad will both increase the market share for EVs and contribute in meeting the environmental demands on future mobility.
