A new technology that allows electric car drivers to charge their vehicles directly from street lights has been showcased by the BMW Mini team at the annual Low Carbon Oxford Week event in the UK. Called 'Light and Charge', these prototype street lights combine energy-efficient Light Emitting Diodes (LED) and BMW’s ChargeNow recharging stations, and can be hooked up to a city’s electricity mains and installed along the side of any major road.
The plan is to make driving an electric car a whole lot more appealing by making charging stations as accessible and numerous as possible. In fact, they could easily become more available than regular petrol stations. "Seamless charging infrastructure is essential if we want to see more electric vehicles on the road in our cities in the future," Peter Schwarzenbauer, a member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, told the press.
