In April, discussions continued in CEPT SE24 about the impact of Wireless Power Transmission for electric vehicles (WPT-EV) on radio services in the residential environment. IARU continues to argue that tighter emission limits are needed to protect radiocommunications services from harmful interference, and submitted a study supporting its concerns.
