FeAsiBility analysis and development of on-Road chargIng solutions for future electric vehiCles

Objective

FABRIC addresses directly the technological feasibility, economic viability and socio-environmental of dynamic on-road charging of electric vehicles.
FABRIC responds to the need to assess the potential and feasibility of a more extensive integration of electric vehicles in the mobility and transportation system, focusing primarily on dynamic wireless charging which would allow practically all of the drawbacks of on-board battery packs to be avoided. On-road charging would also enable the direct link to renewable energy sources: Ultimately this is the only way to fully decarbonise road transport and hence provide true sustainability from the socio-environmental perspective.
Specifically, by engaging a highly-qualified, expert and comprehensive group of key stakeholders within its consortium, FABRIC will determine and assess the end-user requirements that will determine the potential of success in various application sectors, the technology drivers and challenges that impact the widespread implementation of wireless charging technology, and the technology gaps to be bridged in order to provide rational and cost-effective solutions for the grid and road infrastructures.
Advanced solutions, conceived to enable full integration in the grid and road infrastructure within urban- and extra-urban environments for a wide range of future electric vehicles, will be implemented and tested.
Each key issue will be assessed directly and comprehensively, providing insights through experimental evaluations into the relevant technologies, investigating the present and future opportunities for such solutions, and identifying the future trends and requirements for research and development.
The ultimate aim is to provide a pivotal contribution to the evolution of e-Mobility in Europe by identifying the benefits and costs in absolute terms so that the investments required in the coming years for widespread implementation and exploitation can be fully defined and quantified.
