New project in London investigates feasibility of wireless EV charging

More choice in charging infrastructure could enable more investment in electric vehicles, and achieve a zero emissions transport system in London by 2050

A grant of nearly £50,000 from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles and Innovate UK has been awarded to a consortium led by UK Power Networks Services, funding a project focused on wireless charging for electric vehicles.

UK Power Networks Services will work with UPS, High Speed 1 and WMG on the new project, assessing the feasibility of using wireless charging to support the use of electric vehicles in commercial fleets on London’s roads.
