Utah Develops Wireless Charging for Buses | ThisBigCity
Breakthroughs in inductive power transfer are promising to transform the prospects for electric buses. In July 2011, the Utah State University (USU) Research Foundation demonstrated a 90% electrical transfer efficiency of 5kW over an air gap of 10 inches. The breakthrough made inductive power transfer viable for buses, potentially minimising pollution in urban centres and saving costs.

Solar Roads, Charging Roads, And The Future Of Transportation | FastCompany
Here are two great innovations, that could potentially have a profound impact on the future of transportation.
Solar Roads: Imagine that you could replace the concrete or asphalt with solar cells beneath a layer of glass. Operating at 15% efficiency the U.S. road system would provide more than four times our current electricity needs, or about as much electricity as the whole world uses. It’s a lot of potential power.
Charging Roads: What if an electric vehicle can be recharged without wires while on road. Using magnetic induction technology, a company called Wave is trying to achieve just that.
