Norway’s capital city of Oslo will be the world’s first metropolitan area to install wireless, induction-based charging stations for electric taxis, in a bid to make a zero-emission cab system by as early as 2023, according to Reuters. The goal is to make it as easy as possible to charge electric taxis, as doing so now is cumbersome, time-consuming, and expensive. Here’s how Fortum describes the system working in its press announcement:The project aims to install wireless charging using induction technology. The project will be the first wireless fast-charging infrastructure for electric taxis anywhere in the world, and will also help the further development of wireless charging technology for all EV drivers. Wireless charging is a potential game changer,” said Sture Portvik, Oslo’s electro mobility manager, in a statement.
