Major roads in England will be occupied by the power electric and hybrid vehicles this fourth quarter of 2015.
This is a trial and would test the effectiveness and safety measures of the technology in UK's motorways and major A roads. Drivers with an ultra-low emission vehicles could possibly travel in long distances without needing to stop and charge the car's battery.
This attempt is after the completion of the study led by the Highways England into 'dynamic wireless power transfer' technologies. An in-depth research for the potential dynamic charging system under the surface of the road where there will be a fast moving traffic of cars.
This study has four main objectives -to investigate dynamic battery charging systems for electric vehicles on the strategic road network; help reduce environmental impact from road users; to consider the financial charging mechanisms for energy received by EV owners; and to identify what additional services that could be introduced at the same time.
According to Transport Minister, Andrew Jones the potential to recharge low emission vehicles on the move offers exciting potentialities.
"The government is already committing £500 million over successive 5 years to stay Britain at the forefront of this technology, which is able to facilitate boost jobs and growth within the sector," Jones said in a statement.
He added that the project has the tendency to still explore choices on a way to improve journeys and build low emission vehicles accessible to families and businesses.
