Electrified roads – a sustainable transport solution of the future.

Read more about the project How it works

Why?

By building electrified roads such as eRoadArlanda, we can reduce carbon emissions by as much as 80 to 90 percent. Electricity is also a cleaner, quieter and less expensive source of energy, compared with traditional… Read more ›

When?

The technology is being developed and tested through the eRoadArlanda project. In autumn 2017, the solution will be used to construct a two-kilometer electrified road between Arlanda and the Rosersberg logistics area. Read more ›

How?

We are accomplishing this by adding new technology to existing infrastructure. Our solution is based on conductive technology that enables cars, buses and trucks to be recharged while driven. Read more ›

Who?

The eRoadArlanda project is managed by a consortium, whose members are working together to make long-term, sustainable transportation and large-scale electrified roads a reality. Read more ›

Recharging

Vehicles are powered and recharged while driven.

Suitable for everyone

Cars, buses and trucks can be recharged while in motion.

Simple

Existing infrastructure can be utilized.

80-90%

Reduction of carbon emissions

Electrified-road transport cuts fossil emissions by 80 to 90 percent and is a climate-smart and inexpensive method of combining the advantages of rail with the flexibility of trucks. Operating costs will be minimal, due to significant reductions in energy consumption arising from the use of efficient electric engines.

What is eRoadArlanda?

In the eRoadArlanda project we are set on making future electrified roads a reality. Our solution is based on conductive technology that uses an electric rail installed in roads to power and recharge vehicles during their journey. The project is a part of the Swedish Transport Administration’s pre-commercial procurement of innovation, through which we are developing and testing the technology.

The assignment includes the construction of a two-kilometer test track located between the Arlanda Cargo Terminal and the Rosersberg logistics area. The investment in the eRoadArlanda project is in line with the Swedish government’s target of creating a fossil-free transportation infrastructure by 2030-2050 and will help to boost Sweden’s competitiveness.
