Greenhouse gas emissions in the transport sector, particularly in road-based heavy freight traffic, have been stagnating for decades. Following extensive national studies and pilot projects on electric road systems, particularly in Germany and Sweden, the E-CORE project is entering the next phase: it is preparing a feasibility study for an electrified corridor from the Netherlands via Germany and Austria to Hungary, specifically for heavy freight vehicles.

n addition to the organisational, legal, economic and technical requirements, the project is also investigating the synergies of a combination of electric road systems and fast charging points as well as the potential of bidirectional charging processes to reduce emissions. E-CORE is also creating a platform for European networking and information exchange between stakeholders that will observe the European legislative process relating to the development of a charging infrastructure for alternative fuels (AFIR).
