In August 2020, in coordination with its European infrastructure and urban development partner Eurovia, Electreon initiated road work construction on its wireless Electric Road System project in Germany to power a bus line which connects the new EnBW training campus in Karlsruhe’s Rhine harbor to the local public transport system hub as part of the Fettweisstraße route.
The first phase of the project, which has been operational since early 2021, includes a 100m wireless Electric Road; a stationary wireless charging station; and a HIGER e-bus equipped with Electreon’s wireless power transfer receivers. Electreon also provides ongoing installation and maintenance services. After successful testing, Electreon plans to expand the dynamic wireless charging road to an additional 500m section. EnBW, which is one of Germany’s largest energy companies and electric mobility providers, is participating in the overall project management, providing the grid connections, engaging in monitoring of the system, and is responsible for communicating with the relevant local authorities. With this project, EnBW is testing the suitability for everyday use of this innovative charging technology.
With this pilot, Electreon expanded the number of vehicle platforms utilizing its receiver technology – which, at the time of the projec’s kick-off, already included electric buses with supercapacitor energy storage and a long-haul e-truck. The HIGER e-bus is being operated by VBK, the Karlsruhe Transport Company, which is the municipal transport company of the city of Karlsruhe. Technical support for the bus is being provided by Chariot Motors, HIGER’s distributor in Europe. The road work was done by Eurovia and electric work by Omexom, both subsidiaries of Vinci.
