With the attached coil in place the operator of the electric vehicle can drive freely and when the battery is running low the driver must simply park their eclectic vehicle on top of the underground inductive charging unit. When the charging process is initiated an electric current begins to flow through the underground coil. A magnetic field makes an electric current in the attached coil which recharges the battery of the car. The power transfer is more than 90% effective and operates at a limit below 6.25 microteslas. To top it off, the system is also energy efficient given that the car serves as a storage unit and much of the energy used within the public grid of Germany is generated by solar or wind power.
