FABRIC: feasibility analysis and development of on-road charging solutions for future electric vehicles
FABRIC was a large-scale integrated project co-funded by the EU’s 7th Framework Programme, focusing on advanced road charging solutions for pure-electric vehicles for future transportation systems. It ran from 2014 through 2017 and was implemented by 25 partner organizations from nine European countries. The project directly addressed the technological feasibility, economic viability and socio-environmental sustainability of dynamic on-road charging of electric vehicles, paving the way for large-scale deployment of electromobility. Results and impacts will be discussed during the presentation.
