Conductix-Wampfler is proving the suitability of opportunity charging with wireless IPT®Charge solutions since a number of years in real installations being operated around the world. The most known ones are the operations in the Italian cities of Turing and Genoa. At Turin a fleet of 23 electric buses is operated with IPT®Charge.
Beside opportunity charging for electric buses, Conductix-Wampfler has been involved in inductive charging for electric cars. In a project supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety, Daimler and Conductix-Wampfler teamed up to test the technology in vehicles.
The knowledge of Conductix-Wampfler on inductive power transfer roots back to large experience in industrial application where the technology IPT®Rail is successfully applied since 1997 for conveyor systems and material handling applications.

The Energy Dynamics Laboratory (EDL), which originated in 2009, has expanded into a thriving research organization with state, national, and international collaborations. EDL is headquartered in North Logan, Utah, and has an Eastern Utah Field Operations office in Vernal, Utah.
At the heart of EDL are five teams working on transformative research and development aimed at ending, within a generation, oil dependence, economy-damaging energy price spikes, and polluted air. In each case, EDL researchers are looking beyond incremental improvements to existing energy systems and working on entirely new approaches to solving energy challenges.
A major focus at EDL is developing technology that will wirelessly, safely, and automatically transfer electricity to cars, thereby reducing the amount of energy that vehicles need to carry. Commuters will not have to plug in, fuel up, or worry how far their vehicle's battery can take them.
SBE Inc. is a leading developer and manufacturer of film capacitor solutions that provide a much higher degree of reliability, higher power density, and simpler cooling infrastructure in demanding applications, particularly for automotive/transportation, alternative energy, utilities, power supplies/laser and military/aerospace. SBE has significant expertise in high-performance hybrid film/foil capacitors which provide a unique combination of self-healing, heat transfer, and low-cost for resonant circuit applications including induction heating and wireless charging. Originally a Sprague Electric Plant, SBE has been manufacturing capacitors for over 50 years; producing over a billion capacitors, including the renowned Orange Drop®. In 2009, SBE Inc. received a $9.1 Million grant by the Department of Energy to build a world-class facility for the manufacture of its DC Link Power Ring Film Capacitors™ used in drivetrain inverters for plug-ins and electric drive vehicles. The company’s headquarters, engineering/product development groups and manufacturing plant are located in Barre, Vermont.
Utah Clean Cities, established in 1994, is a nationally recognized, local non-profit organization sponsored by the Department of Energy’s Vehicle Technologies Program. It is one of almost a 100 coalitions across the United States that works to advance the nation’s energy, economic and environmental security by supporting local actions to reduce petroleum use in the transportation sector. Utah Clean Cities Coalition promotes the use of alternative fuels, alternative fuel vehicles and energy conservation strategies. We assist fleets and individuals throughout Utah who are interested in using fuels and vehicle technologies that are clean, domestic, efficient and cost effective. We also actively engage the public with various educational outreach campaigns.
Commercial Enterprises works closely with academic and industry partners to develop new technologies by "spinning-in" business innovation opportunities. One such innovation has led to industry-sponsored research and $15M in future revenue. From severe weather sensors that fly in geosynchronous orbit to synthetically bio-manufactured products, our Commercial Enterprises team is working with our USTAR hires, our academic colleges, the Space Dynamics Laboratory and the Energy Dynamics Laboratory to develop new technologies for the market place—and we are asking the marketplace what it needs. It is our desire and our commitment to protect USU's intellectual property and to develop relevant, practical technologies with industry so that we can appropriately leverage the intellectual, financial and creative assets of Utah State University.
