Strategies for the expansion of electric road systems in Europe

Oberleitungs-LWK auf einem eHighway-Testfeld

Electric road systems (ERS) are infrastructures – such as overhead lines or inductive charging technologies – that enable electric vehicles to be supplied with energy while driving. These systems have the potential to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transportation, particularly in heavy freight transport. As part of the CollERS2 project, the Institute for Climate […]

Electric energy billing for overhead line trucks

Overhead line truck on test track

Overhead lines on highways are a promising approach to decarbonise heavy freight traffic. In a new study, IKEM has examined the legal framework with regard to the billing of energy consumption and the integration of overhead line trucks into the energy market. In the ongoing research projects AMELIE 2 and ELISA II-B, actor models have […]
