Lumen Freedom Announces the Supply of Wireless Charging Systems for the Wireless Charging of Electric Taxis (WiCET) Demonstration Project

MELBOURNE, Australia, Aug. 22, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Lumen Freedom, a world leading manufacturer of wireless electric vehicle charging (WEVC) systems, today announce the supply of wireless charging systems for the Wireless Charging of Electric Taxis (WiCET) demonstration project in the UK.

WiCET is a demonstration project funded by the UK’s Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV) and delivered through Innovate UK, to assess the commercial and technical viability of deploying wireless charging for electric Hackney Carriages, with the potential to enable further electrification of transport that reduces emissions and improves air quality.

Nine vehicles will be fitted with wireless charging hardware and used in a practical demonstrator in Nottingham for a six-month period to show how the concept of taxi rank-based charging can work.

Lumen Freedom have been working closely with the WiCET Project Team since the beginning of 2021 on the development of WiCET’s technical requirements, whilst providing evaluation and development wireless charging hardware for the successful first phase of the project.

Wireless electric vehicle charging is a simple solution for charging electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles, without the fuss of having to plug-in. The efficiency levels of the Lumen Freedom WEVC systems are comparable to plug-in or conductive charging systems.
