First Electric Road
“On Wednesday, Sweden ostentatiously inaugurated a test stretch of the world’s first electric road. Equipped with aerial contact lines from Siemens, the road is expected to supply electric hybrid trucks from Scania with renewable electricity in a costly bid to reach carbon neutrality.
The tests will be administered for two years on a 22 km long stretch of the E16 road, which connects Norway’s Bergen and Oslo with Sweden’s Gävle north of Stockholm and is intended to provide electric power to heavy transports. Electric-powered trucks are expected to cut as much as 80-90 percent of fossil fuel emissions.”
