The British government in the long term, wants to once and forever solve the problem of “refueling” of electric cars. In resolving the issue will rely even not on higher-capacity batteries or a chain of gas stations, and to wireless charge electric cars while driving on the road.
To test a new wireless system of energy transmission has already allocated £500 million ($780 million). The tests will begin later this year on test roads where the painting will be installed in the wireless charging system.
After 18 months, in case of positive results, testing will continue on the real roads of the UK, to evaluate the possibility for the widespread introduction of such technologies. The program and financing is for five years.
Even if successful the new technology the UK government will develop infrastructure for electric vehicles and other areas. For example, the traditional point of recharging electric vehicles are planned to be installed on the roads approximately every 35 km.
