Partners in e-mobility
One of the most exciting things about PRIMOVE wireless charging technology is that it delivers real and lasting benefits to everyone – from government authorities and urban planners to energy suppliers, vehicle manufacturers and the public in general.
Here we take a closer look at the key stakeholders to discover how PRIMOVE technology is ready to impact on their world and change it for the better.
Manufacturers are acutely aware of the market potential for electric vehicles. But until now, this potential has remained largely out of reach due to major reservations about the genuine benefits of going electric and the limitations it entails.
The PRIMOVE solution helps manufacturers fast-track the acceptance of electric vehicles by delivering a new level of performance and convenience. It provides a high power, emission-free charging system that does not impact on vehicle availability and usability. And because PRIMOVE makes optimal use of charging opportunities along the journey, batteries can be made smaller and lighter – thereby reducing vehicle weight and running costs.
Mass transit operators are actively looking to modernise their networks by embracing clean and sustainable alternatives to fossil fuel. While electric-powered solutions are gaining in acceptance, most of the available options remain plug-in based. Furthermore, batteries tend to be heavy and limited in power, contributing to infrastructural issues and range concerns. Such restrictions are unacceptable for operators who place reliability and availability at the forefront of their offering.
But imagine running a state-of-the-art electric bus fleet whose charging adapts to the flow of operations without affecting journey or servicing times – no waiting, no downtime, no hassle. Imagine electric buses and BRT systems that operate with constant availability, lower running costs and full reliability. With PRIMOVE, this is now a reality.
By integrating the PRIMOVE solutions into their networks, public transport operators also benefit from a reduction of the total cost of ownership, as well as lifecycle expenses.
PRIMOVE also eliminates CO2 emissions, minimises noise and reduces unpleasant smell from gas fumes – making for a much more comfortable passenger experience.
Fleet operators – from delivery companies and taxi pools to car sharing operators – are in a unique position to adopt and benefit from cutting-edge technologies in eMobility. The option of integrating cleaner vehicles into their fleets is a highly attractive proposition – not least because of the positive shift that being an early e-mover can bring to their corporate image. But until now, these potential customers have often been wary of “going green” due to a number of perceived disadvantages.
This no longer needs to be the case. With PRIMOVE technology, fleet operators can harness the advantages of running emission-free electric cars and vans without the constraints and hassle usually associated with electric charging. High power transfer and automatic procedures make charging quick and easy – ensuring smooth operations and maximum fleet efficiency.
Energy suppliers can now get more actively involved in powering the future of zero-emission mobility than ever before. Thanks to PRIMOVE technology, the same electrical power source can be used to charge all types of mobility – from trams and buses to cars and trucks. This allows economies of scale to be leveraged, minimising the required infrastructure and giving energy suppliers a single unified interface for expanding their market share in urban transportation.
PRIMOVE thus enables utility companies to compete more effectively for customers in the mobility market – a market that until now has been dominated by oil companies.
Buying an electric car is one of the boldest statements one can make in terms of taking ownership for the protection of the environment and leading a sustainable lifestyle. But before taking that step, most people want to see a new generation of electric vehicles that can deliver fast charging times while solving the fundamental issue of range. In other words, they don’t want the hassle of plugging in their cars or the compromise of limited journey distances.
The PRIMOVE system based on inductive power transfer represents a game-changing step forward – offering emission-free e-mobility by offering a vehicle charging system that is fast, convenient and safe.
