How energy harvesting can augment electric vehicle charging.

ElectReon (Israel)

ElectReon is an Israeli firm developing an in-road inductive charging system.

How it works:

  • Its charging solution powers EVs from electrical fields generated by copper coils under the asphalt
  • A management unit transfers the energy from the electricity grid to the road infrastructure and manages communication with approaching vehicles
  • Receivers are installed on the vehicles’ floor to transmit the energy directly to battery while driving
