Together with Trafikverket, CEDR has organised a workshop for Road Directors on the subject of dynamic Electric Road Systems.
There is great interest in systems that will provide electric power to heavy trucks and reduce local emissions. Sweden will be the first NRA in Europe to trial the Siemen’s eHighway overhead powerline system as well as other technologies. Siemens have offered to host the workshop at their test track near Berlin. The aim is to review the main systems being proposed and work on harmonising NRA strategies (including possible routes to EU funding). Lena Erixon will present the Trafikverket activities and the studies in Norway and Germany will be presented.
