In Oslo, the authorities intend to equip roads with wireless charging systems. We are talking about lanes, designed for the parking of taxis. Thus, drivers will be able to charge their cars when they expect a customer.

The development will be based on the induction method (engineers consider it to be the most energy efficient, – ed.). Special charging plates will be built into the road bed, and electric vehicles will be equipped with transmitters. System power will be 75 kW.

The project will be implemented by the Finnish company Fortum, as well as the manufacturer of wireless installations Momentum Dynamics from the USA.

It should be noted that this will be the world’s first urban network of wireless charging. It is expected that after a while it will be made available to all owners of connected cars.

In addition, in Oslo they intend until 2023 to abandon the use of cars with internal combustion engines that provide taxi services. Therefore, the city is extremely important wireless infrastructure, which will ensure the stable operation of transport.
