Electreon partners with global automotive leaders to bring Electric Road System (ERS) to Italy to decarbonize the transportation sector and achieve a zero emission mobility future.
Electreon (TASE: ELWS.TA), the leading provider of wireless and in-road wireless electric vehicle (EV) charging technology for commercial and passenger EVs, today announced the successful completion of the final phase of the company’s Electric Road System (ERS) pilot as part of the “Arena of the Future” project. Electreon’s technology is now ready for commercialization.
As part of the project—which is located in Brescia, Italy, and dubbed “Arena of the Future”—Electreon has integrated its wireless technology to charge an IVECO bus and Stellantis’s Fiat Nuova 500 passenger vehicle while driving. This project is demonstrating contactless charging for a range of EVs as they drive as a potential pathway to decarbonizing long-haul transportation systems along motorway transport corridors.
“This project highlights the extraordinary advantages of Electreon’s wireless charging technology and we look forward to scaling the project to commercialization,” said Oren Ezer, co-founder and CEO, Electreon. “We are proud to help transform electric transportation in Italy and beyond!”
The construction and technical implementation of the 1,050-meter-long circuit equipped with Electreon’s properarity in-road charging coils and supported by 1MW of electrical power was completed in December 2021. For the last six months, “Arena of the Future” has been successfully showcasing Electreon’s inductive EV charging technology as a technological enabler of an immediate, concrete solution to decarbonize the mobility sector.
To date, the company’s patented technology has been integrated with a wide range of vehicles, as part of its ongoing collaborations with auto manufacturers including Renault, Stellantis, Iveco, and Volkswagen. In November, Electreon’s wireless charging technology was named one of TIME’s 100 Best Inventions of 2021.
This project is one of the first examples of international collaborative innovation for “zero emissions” mobility for people and goods, which today sees the collaboration of industry and academic institutions: A35 Brebemi-Aleatica, ABB, Electreon, FIAMM Energy Technology, IVECO, IVECO Bus, Mapei, Pizzarotti, Politecnico di Milano, Prysmian, Stellantis, TIM, Roma Tre University and the University of Parma.
Electreon is the leading provider of wireless charging solutions for electric vehicles (EVs), providing end-to-end charging infrastructure and services to meet the needs and efficiency demands of shared, public and commercial fleet operators and consumers. The company’s proprietary inductive technology dynamically (while in motion) and statically (while stopped) charges EVs quickly and safely, eliminating range anxiety, lowering total costs of EV ownership, and reducing battery capacity needs—making it one of the most environmentally sustainable, scalable, and compelling charging solutions available today. Electreon works with cities and fleet operators on a charging as a service (CaaS) platform that enables cost-effective electrification of public, commercial, and autonomous fleets for smooth and continuous operation.
