|The Disruptive Potential of Wireless EV Charging|
|Published: November 9, 2018||Content info: 18 Pages; 4 Tables, Charts & Figures||
The market for EVs has been growing steadily during the last decade, and the prospects look good for stronger growth in the future for both consumer and commercial vehicle electrification. Governments at all levels are passing legislation for cleaner air and offering support for the development of more efficient electric transportation. Investment in battery mass production has been a key factor in lowering EV costs, and wider availability of charging infrastructure is another powerful motivator for the market.
Wireless charging has been under development for about 2 decades and is at the point where global standards are ready for final approval with the agreement of all the major players. Increased convenience is the initial driver of consumer sales, but the adoption of wireless charging by fleets also has the potential to influence future EV design. Both static and dynamic charging have enormous potential beyond simply eliminating the chore of plugging and unplugging cables.
This Navigant Research report examines the current state of wireless charging for EVs. It provides an overview of the key players operating in the market today and examines some recent new entrants. The study also explores the potential benefits of successful technology investment and how this technology might influence the nature of EVs in the future. Detailed and actionable recommendations are provided on how charging station and vehicle manufacturers can make the most of this emerging technology.
