CERV Presenter

CERV connects leaders from around the globe in charging and transportation infrastructure, electric utilities and auto manufacturing.

ASPIRE is currently a part of three different pilots: one in Utah testing electric trucks, one on roadway electrification in Florida and another inductive charging project in Indiana, where university partner Purdue is leading the pilot. Ford Motor Company is also a part of a pilot in Michigan to develop and test wireless charging infrastructure near Michigan Central Station. The goal is to outfit an electric shuttle with a wireless receiver.
