UK Is Building Roads That Will Charge Your Electric Car While You Drive

Updated on 25 September, 2019 at 5:07 pm By

We all are aware that electric cars can help us save fuel costs and can protect our environment, too. But will you drive an electric car if you are constantly worried about finding a charging station? Well, the UK government doesn’t think so.

The Highways England, a U.K. government body responsible for road infrastructure, is getting ready to test roads that can charge electric cars while they run on them, reports Fox 11.

The trials which would run for 18 months (if successful, the project will be moved to public roads) will see electric cars get equipped with wireless transmitters. Electric cables buried under the surface of the road would generate electromagnetic fields. The energy would then be picked up by a coil inside the car’s transmitter and converted into electricity.

 

Mike Wilson, Highways England’s chief highways engineer, said:

“The off-road trials of wireless power technology will help to create a more sustainable road network for England and open up new opportunities for businesses that transport goods across the country.”

To make sure that this project becomes successful, the government is committing £ 500 million for next five years to the keep the country at the forefront of this technology.

Similar technology is already being used in South Korea, where there is a seven-mile stretch of road that charges electric buses as they pass over it.
