The world's first electric road opened to use

Sunday, April 15, 2018
The world's first electric road, which can charge electric cars and batteries of heavy vehicles at the time of driving, opened in Sweden. The government has already prepared plans to expand the related institutions for the system, which is installed by electric railway 2 kilometers long, on the open road to the nearest capital Stockholm.


Sweden plans to reduce the country's fossil fuels by 2030, and a 70 per cent reduction in fossil fuel use in the transport sector is required.

The Swedish government has accepted a proposal to allow diesel vehicles to be banned by local governments in the past days. Editing the 1.3 million diesel cars in Sweden will only make the use of electric cars mandatory.

The chargeable electric road connects Arlanda Airport in Stockholm with a nearby logistics zone. Thus, it is expected that the problem of charging problem of electric vehicles will be solved and battery production will become economical. And carbon emissions will drop by 90 percent.


The energy transfer from the road is provided via a double track system embedded in the road and a movable shaft mounted underneath the vehicle. When the vehicle overturns, the shaft automatically disconnects and then automatically re-integrates into the path.

The electric road is divided into 50-meter sections that are loaded with energy only when it is on the car. When the car stops, the connection is disconnected. The system can also calculate the energy consumption of the vehicle and the electricity cost is accrued per vehicle and user.

Unlike the charging points on the road, dynamic charging technology will also reduce production costs as vehicles will allow batteries to be smaller.


The first to test the road was a truck belonging to a logistics company named PostNord and that used diesel fuel before. Hans Säll, top manager of the project eRoadlander, who develops the project, says that current tools and routes can easily adapt to this technology.

The cost of rechargeable electric road technology is 1 million euros per kilometer. It costs 50% of the cost of the city tram line.

Säll says that a total of half a million kilometers in Sweden and 20 thousand kilometers of them are highways, only that the electrification of this distance is enough.


The fact that there are not more than 45 kilometers between two highways in the country and that electric vehicles can go without charge at this distance is enough to make the transportation problem-free.

Noting that there is no energy on the road, officials at eRoadland say the dual rail is no different from the sockets on the wall. Electric current comes from the bottom surface of 5-6 centimeters. Tests revealed that even in the case of spillage of saline water, it was determined that the energy was only 1 volt, but it did not prevent walking with bare feet.

It was reported that negotiations for the establishment of the road in Berlin in Germany were also initiated for the road opened with the ceremony which the Swedish minister was present.
