FRANCE - Israel Installs Car Charging Road

Arno Froese

Israeli start-up Electreon is set to install an electric stretch of road that will charge passing electric vehicles in France, following its victory in a public tender. Together with European toll road operator VINCI, Electreon’s Wireless Electric Road System (ERS) will be built into a section of the A10 highway, South West of Paris. 

“We are honored that Electreon has been selected as the on-the-go wireless charging technology for France’s first ERS deployment,” said Oren Ezer, CEO and co-founder of Electreon. 

The initial phase of the project will focus on charging commercial electric fleets while they drive. However, the ultimate goal is to deploy ERS across all major French roadways to decarbonize passenger and freight transport, the heavy-trucking industry, and to support all types of electric vehicles to be able to charge seamlessly while driving on an open highway in France.

Electreon and its consortium partners were chosen as winners of the tender after France’s Transportation Ministry published a 2021 study on the most efficient and sustainable large-scale technologies and strategies to achieve net-zero transport emissions.

Electreon’s dynamic wireless charging technology has entered its fully-commercial and industrial phase and is the subject of numerous demonstrations, deployments and commercial projects worldwide; most notably in Israel, Germany, the United States, Italy, Sweden, and Norway., 12 July 2023

Arno's Commentary

It seems strange to read that the highly sophisticated country France needs an Israeli firm to create a while-you-drive electric charging system. The article reveals that the installation is not intended for France only, but literally the entire world. While the world turns increasingly anti-Israel, at the same time, they find themselves depending on the little Jewish nation more than ever.
