"London-based Connected Kerb and induction technology specialist Magment, based in Munich, announced they are bringing wireless induction-based charging to the UK. The deployments are expected to start within the next two months and expand to other countries in mid-2020. The transition to wireless charging will remove the need for connecting vehicles via a cable. Instead, the vehicle can be charged by parking over an inductive pad embedded in the road surface.
The technology brings a lot of convenience. It can be as fast as cable charging and removes the need for street furniture to deploy charging stations. It can be deployed in parking bays across a city and therefore holds the potential to significantly expand EV charging infrastructure, which is key to the mass adoption of EVs in future." – Varun Mishra
