AMiCable Charging

Delivering user-friendly wireless charging solutions to increase the uptake of electric vehicles.

AMiCC will demonstrate how wireless technology can unlock a range of the blockers to the market transitioning to electric vehicles and decarbonized cities

About us

AMiCC’s main objective is to evaluate the benefits of static wireless charging systems through the deployment of an innovative charging system to enable fleet vehicles with short dwell times and high utilization to switch to electric when they would otherwise have been unable to do so.

This is supported by development of an innovative hardware solution to provide standardisation across the industry for high-power smart charging.

Our partners will deploy and evaluate wireless charging in three different case studies, where dwell times are short and infrastructure opportunities are often limited due to space constraints:

Project Aims

Swipe to see more

1.

Create a standardised EV wireless conversion framework…

…that will make a variety of vehicle makes and models interoperable with a variety of static charging ground plates. This will be demonstrated using two vehicle types in two fleet scenarios.

2.

Create a set of standards for wireless adoption…

…to standardise vehicle conversion across multiple vehicle types. The project will work these through with UK Government to become a code of best practice and subsequently implement into industry.

3.

Implement intelligent algorithms…

…that will review vehicle movement and identify optimum charging behaviour and locations for fleets in order to facilitate and maintain an optimal EV uptake strategy.

Project Impact

ECONOMIC

Promoting the uptake of electric vehicles. This project will enhance the case for “going electric” by providing a better understanding of the benefits of wireless charging.

Optimising the use of local assets to future proof the local energy system and reduce the pressure on the national grid.

SOCIAL

Increasing the uptake and usage of commercial electric vehicles providing a greater choice of reduced carbon alternatives.

Reducing the impact on the national grid by reducing peak energy demand and dealing with grid constraints that will increase energy security and grid stability and resilience.

ENVIRONMENTAL

Reducing carbon emissions from the transport sector and the energy grid.

Optimising the transport system by understanding people movement behaviour. This project will help planners to optimise the design of cities to better respond to their needs for transport and mobility.
