The project, which will power a public electric bus, will be carried out in the city of Balingen in two phases. In a first phase, a 400-meter long route will be deployed with two static charging stations. In the second phase, the electric track will be extended by another 600 meters. For this, Electreon will receive up to 3.2 million euros with the mission of deploying the dynamic and static wireless charging infrastructure.
The project in Balingen is the result of a successful pilot project carried out by Electreon in the city of Karlsruhe in collaboration with EnBW, Germany’s leading provider of charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. In this pilot completed in Karlsruhe, an electrified highway was installed that fed a local public bus at rush hour at the EnBW training center.
