Research Shows Electric Cars Magnetic Fields Are Safe

Researchers from seven EU countries have concluded that we can feel safe both in electric-powered cars and in those powered by hydrogen, petrol and diesel. None of them exposes passengers to higher electromagnetic fields than those recommended in international ... [Published New Energy and Fuel - May 08 2014]

EM Safety study finds electromagnetic fields not an issue for EVs

The EU-funded study EM Safety, led by SINTEF, has found that neither electric-powered cars—nor those powered by hydrogen or gasoline—expose passengers to higher electromagnetic fields than those recommended in international standards. Field intensity ... [Published Green Car Congress - May 06 2014]

Quotes

Eventually in June 2013, the original directive was formally repealed and replaced with Directive 2013/35/EU, which according to the EU, "reviews exposure limitations on the basis of new scientific evidence and provides for derogations, in particular for medical applications using magnetic resonance imaging"
...9–1.7 inches), Perzow said. "One gets closer to those safety limits as switching frequency and transmitted power increase, and as system efficiency decreases. Since Qi uses a lower switching frequency and is inherently more efficient, it's easier to increase the power of a Qi system while staying well within safety limits."
"There is absolutely no cause for concern," says Kari Schjolberg-Henriksen, a physicist at SINTEF, in a press release . "The difference between this research and similar earlier work is that we have taken into account what contributes to the magnetic fields. The rotation of the wheels themselves generates considerable magnetic fields, irrespective of vehicle type."
"There is a good deal of public concern about exposure to magnetic fields. The subject crops up regularly in the media. With the number of electric-powered vehicles increasing, this project is very relevant" says Kari Schjølberg-Henriksen, a physicist at SINTEF
