Charging Tesla at McDonald’s: Allego has installed two fast-charging stations with Tesla adapters at Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam. With the latest addition, Allego now operates a network of 65 DC charging stations in the Netherlands and a total of 155 in the whole of Europe.

Sino-American wireless connection: Uni of British Columbia spin-off Elix Wireless is to collaborate strategically with Chinese Chongqing Zongshen Power Machinery. Together, they want to commercialise Elix’ Magneto-Dynamic Coupling technology for inductive charging with up to 8 kW by end-2017.

Thinking ahead: A BMW i3 has been refitted to be controlled solely by the driver’s brain waves. It was developed by MoneySuperMarket for its Car Insurance Epic Mind Drive project.

Another Swiss solar plane is attempting to break a record. The ETH Zurich has developed the unmanned Atlantik Solar, which attempts to stay airborne for 80 hours. If successful, it would be the second longest, autonomous solar flight with a plane weighing less than 50 kilos worldwide. The plane is part of the EU project Icarus and could be used in crisis areas to save lives.
