Early June, the City of Paris inaugurated Europe’s first Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer (DWPT) demonstrator in urban area as part of the INCIT-EV project.

Participants witnessed an electric vehicle recharging while driving on a road equipped by IncitEV partners over a distance of 30 meters.

This brief demonstration of 30 meters significantly increased the vehicle’s autonomy – by more than one kilometer – paving the way for potential reductions in charging duration and battery size without compromising autonomy.

Geoffroy Boulard, Mayor of the 17th arrondissement, and Penelope Komites-Valadares, Deputy Mayor of Paris for Innovation, Attractiveness, Paris 2030 Prospective, and Resilience, were present to discover this innovation.

Congratulations to VEDECOM, COLAS, Enedis, City of Paris, Stellantis, and Université Gustave Eiffel for making this technological prowess happen!
