“This contract is a huge victory for the WAVE team as it will allow us to work more effectively with our customers. They now have direct access to WAVE’s innovative charging solutions, bypassing the lengthy and costly bidding process. noted Kristen helsel, Director of Revenue at Ideanomics. “We are honored to be the only inductive wireless charging solution to be honored in this round. We look forward to partnering with Sourcewell members, especially municipalities, ports and transit agencies, to accelerate the future of wireless charging. “
“One of the biggest challenges for fleet operators to switch to climate-friendly, zero-emission vehicles is matching the range and duty cycle of outgoing fossil fuel vehicles,” said Michel masquelier, CEO of WAVE. “Automated, fast and high-power wireless charging will make it easier for Sourcewell members to extend the reach of their next-generation electric vehicles, making the transition to a more sustainable fleet easier. “
As an example, the Antelope Valley Transit Authority in northern Los Angeles County operates the largest fleet of battery-powered electric buses in the United States and operates 12 WAVE wireless chargers on 100 square miles of roads.
Integrated into the roads and charging vehicles during scheduled stops, the fully automated hands-free WAVE system eliminates battery range limitations and allows fleets to achieve ranges corresponding to those of internal combustion engines. Wireless charging systems offer several compelling advantages over plug-in charging systems, including reduced maintenance, improved health and safety, and accelerated energy connection. Plus, wireless charging on the go allows for longer trips or smaller batteries while maintaining battery life.
