Economic Analysis of Dynamic Inductive Power Transfer Roadway

Selena Sheng, University of Auckland

This presentation discussed the economic viability of a dynamic Inductive Power Transfer (DIPT) system for EVs through public–private partnership (PPP), by employing a net present value (NPV) framework, to determine the optimal PPP ratio. Results indicated that, for a 15-year concession period under PPP where the private investor is expecting a 12.5% return, the government can contribute 9.46% towards the initial investment and charging roadway users a toll of 37 cents/kWh. By implementing the DIPT system, EVs could achieve a significant reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions compared to internal combustion engines (ICEs).
