Smart Cities

Wireless charging is the answer to tomorrow’s smart cities

The world’s population is increasingly urban, with 80% of the world’s population expected to be living in cities by 2050 (1). Urban settings have unique challenges when it comes to electrification, among them the lack of dedicated parking spaces for charging, the need for smarter charging technologies, and the frequent desire to preserve historical charm. Against this backdrop, there is a need for improved electric vehicle charging infrastructure, and the ability to charge electric vehicles quickly and conveniently. WiTricity addresses this challenge with:

Enabling an intelligent bidirectional grid

Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology enables two-way power flow between the grid and the batteries in an electrified vehicle.
