Tel Aviv: Dan Buses

The world’s largest commercial wireless EV charging infrastructure agreement

In October 2021, Electreon partnered with the Tel Aviv-Yafo Municipality and the Dan Bus Company - one of the largest bus operators in Israel - to announce their first commercial agreement for the installation of stationary wireless charging at city terminals across the country, which would charge Dan e-buses between trips and while passengers board and disembark.

This agreement follows Electreon’s successful Tel Aviv University Station pilot with Dan Bus Company, which demonstrated the reduction of required battery capacity by approximately 90% for the electric bus that utilized Electreon’s dynamic and static wireless charging along its route. The pilot demonstrated a lowering of the potential total cost of ownership for Dan and has also highlighted how wireless charging technology has the potential to increase the automotive industry’s EV sustainability efforts. In total, as part of this commercial agreement, Electreon will install its wireless charging receivers on 200 Dan electric buses over five years.
