UK About To Test Roads That Charge Electric Cars As They Drive

Electric cars are an idea that could radically change the impact that we have on the environment when we travel, but there are currently a few limitations that are preventing these cars from reaching their full potential in the global market. The main issue that these cars have had is the fact that many of them don’t hold a charge long, and there are very few charging stations.

This forces electric car owners to carefully plan out their trips to avoid running out of energy and breaking down. The price of the cars have also been an issue for most people, but as with all technology, the price is steadily declining as the manufacturing process becomes more efficient.

The power issue may actually be solved very soon also if a new idea tested later this year in the UK ends up working. The new project actually involves electromagnetic roads, that charge the vehicle as it travels, cutting out the need for charging stations. The technology is in the middle of an 18-month test period, which will decide if the project is suitable for public roads.

Unfortunately, the drawback to this project is that it is controlled by the government, and funded by their stolen tax money, but an innovation of this nature could inspire more pure efforts to take place in other parts of the world.

“The potential to recharge low emission vehicles on the move offers exciting possibilities. The government is already committing £500 million over the next five years to keep Britain at the forefront of this technology, which will help boost jobs and growth in the sector. As this study shows, we continue to explore options on how to improve journeys and make low-emission vehicles accessible to families and businesses,” Transport Minister Andrew Jones said in a statement.

Highways England Chief Highways Engineer Mike Wilson added that, “Vehicle technologies are advancing at an ever increasing pace and we’re committed to supporting the growth of ultra-low emissions vehicles on our England’s motorways and major A roads. 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.”

  1. It is really interesting conception I didn't heard about before. Electric cars are about to change the world, I believe. All we need is reliable power supply for them when travel, so I hope the charging lanes will be approved so we could drive without worrying that battery could be fully drained. My friend is a researcher, he has been working on the idea how to improve electric cars for years, he even asked me to find essay writing service for him to write a paper and I'd found Best Essay.
    I belive he will be interested when knows about new conception.

  3. Manufacturers need to continue to sell cars - fact. The Gov. needs to be seen to be 'reducing' pollution and needs to keep the corporate parasites fed. This experiment is a lot like those Victorian prison punishments, the crank and the treadmill - lots of energy and effort without meaningful result - activity as a diversion to prevent constructive thought. Read this man's work: read this one link and you will want to read more.

  4. Thanks for sharing.I found a lot of interesting information here. A really good post, very thankful and hopeful that you will write many more posts like this one.
