Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000667
The objective of this FOA is to research and develop a production-feasible wireless charging system, integrate the system into a production-intent vehicle, and to demonstrate the technology’s readiness to deliver the benefits of static (and possibly quasi-dynamic) wireless charging to drivers of light-duty (10,000 lb Gross Vehicle Weight Rating or less) Grid-Connected Electric Drive Vehicles (GCEDV). While the primary focus of this project is the advancement of static and possibly quasi-dynamic charging, the Department of Energy (DOE) recognizes that the research and demonstration results of this FOA may contribute to the future development of dynamic charging capability. This project shall demonstrate wireless charging technology while being cost competitive and compliant with safety standards
