This is really exciting news!!!
Renault have shown the media a new dynamic wireless electric charging (DEVC).
This new charging system allows the vehicle to charge whilst driving.
For this project Renault has teamed up with Qualcomm Technologies and Vedecom to showcase the DEVC system. The Renault Kangoo Z.E can charge up to 20 kilowatts at speeds up to 62 mph.
We need this new technology implemented into the road network. This would be a game changer in the real world for EV’s.
Lets think about this……….
There will be no need for charging points.
No more worrying about the electric car range capabilities.
Non stop journeys.
“We are inventors. We are wireless electric vehicle charging. This dynamic charging demonstration is the embodiment of this,”. “I am immensely proud of what we have achieved. The combination of a global team of expert engineers and Qualcomm Halo technology, which covers all aspects of WEVC systems, irrespective of the magnetics used, has enabled us to really push the boundaries of the possible and outline our vision for future urban mobility.”
Said Steve Pazol, vice president and general manager, Wireless Charging, Qualcomm Incorporated.
“Contributing to this exciting project has enabled us to test and further research dynamic charging on our Kangoo Z.E. vehicles”. “Our research engineers have worked very closely with the Qualcomm Technologies and Vedecom teams to complete the DEVC system integration demonstration as part of FABRIC. We see dynamic charging as a great vision to further enhance the ease of use of EVs, and the accessibility of EVs for all.”
Said Eric Feunteun, Electric Vehicle Program Director, Groupe Renault.
FABRIC stands for FeAsiBility analysis and development of on-Road chargIng solutions for future electriC vehicles
