Project

Goods transport accounts for 25 percent of total emissions in road traffic. There are various options to save CO 2-emissions in road freight transport but since alternative fuels are still not very efficient, the shift to rail cannot take place at the same time as the expansion of passenger transport. As pure battery solutions in heavy transport are associated with large batteries and charging times, electrical road systems (ERS) are an important component for the decarbonization of heavy traffic.

AMELIE II creates a coherent, technically, legally and organizationally implementable introductory vision for a market ramp-up of ERS in Germany and Europe. It should be the one in the previous project AMELIE Developed ideas for an actor model and the billing of the electricity purchase and analyze how these recommendations can be fitted into the existing structures of the road system and the energy industry.

IKEM deals with all relevant legal and economic questions that concern the integration of ERS into the existing transport and energy management system. In close cooperation with the project partners of the FH-Erfurt and Siemens Mobility, a practical legal framework for the establishment of ESS in Germany and Europe is being developed. The results will be incorporated into a strategy paper with the working title “Synergy Potentials of Electrified Roads”.
