Oak Ridge Scientists Demo Wireless Vehicle Charging with 85% Efficiency

biofuelScientists at the Energy Department’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have showcased a wireless charging unit that the lab says works at an 85-percent efficiency rate.

DOE’s Allison Lantero wrote Thursday that 17 national labs are also exploring transportation technologies in an effort to improve air quality and minimize U.S. energy dependence on other countries.

Researchers are developing wireless charging units with the goal to reduce harmful emissions and support in-motion charging.

DOE’s Joint Center for Energy Storage Research at Argonne National Lab is building a battery technology with the goal of expanding storage and cutting charging times.

The department is also testing different ethanol blends, other biofuels and hydrogen and fuel cell technologies as alternatives to biodiesel.
