Finding innovative charging solutions for an electric vehicle.
Test and implement breakthrough electric vehicle charging technologies
The New York City administration has launched a competition in two technology areas:
New Technologies for Fast Charging and Smart Chargers for Electric Vehicles
Examples: pavement powering electric vehicles, wireless (induction) charging, >350 kW charging.
Electric vehicle charging technologies with fast commercial returns
Examples: charging capacity of 25-150 kW, solar parking sheds with integrated charging for electric vehicles
Proposed solutions should address the current state of electric vehicle charging infrastructure in New York City. Participants are expected to provide a plan to develop a hub with terminals for accelerated ev charging in every borough of the city in 2018.
