Topic 28. Electric Road Systems, a contribution to free the transport system from the use of fossile fuels

  • IP0666 - Arena of the Future A35 Brebemi Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer project.

    The A35 Brebemi highway, Italy, has built a test track (“Arena of the Future") equipped with Dynamic Wireless Power Transfer technology (DWPT). The 1km long track was dimensioned for a maximum power of 1 MW and a maximum speed of 100 km/h. The tests are carried out with all-electric vehicles New Fiat 500 and an IVECO Intercity bus. The results show that the DWPT enables a battery-electric vehicle [...]

  • IP0412 - Availability and downtime reasons of the first operational phase for the first eHighway system in Germany
    Jürgen K. WILKE

    Introduction On December 31, 2022, the first evaluation phase of the first field trial of an overhead power supply system as an electric road system (ERS) in Germany will end after 3.5 years. The electrified route of 10 km (in both directions of travel) is currently being extended to 17 km. The Institute of Transport Planning and Traffic Engineering (TU Darmstadt) is leading the analyses of the [...]

  • IP0130 - Balancing missed opportunities and stranded assets - Guiding principles of strategy development and implementation for climate neutral road freight transport from an economic point of view
    Carolin GRÜTER

    Governments face the challenge of decarbonising the transport sector. For heavy-duty road freight transport in particular, various climate-neutral technologies are still being discussed to replace diesel trucks, such as the direct use of electricity in battery electric trucks, the use of hydrogen in fuel cell electric trucks and the use of bio fuels or synthetic renewable fuels in trucks with internal [...]

  • IP0379 - Design of a road demonstrator for charging of electric vehicles by induction
    Pierre HORNYCH

    In recent years, with the rapid development of electric vehicles (EV), design and evaluation of different types of solutions for EV charging has also been the subject of numerous studies. In particular, dynamic wireless vehicle charging by induction appears as a promising charging solution, offering several advantages: no physical connection with the vehicle, no handling by the car user, and reduced [...]

  • IP0702 - Experiences from the EVolution Road electric road project supplying buses, trucks and cars

    Summary In recent years, various Electrical Road System (ERS) technologies have emerged with great potential to create an efficient charging infrastructure to electric vehicles. With a modern ERS follows several benefits such as decreased greenhouse gas emissions and an up to 70 percent reduction of the required battery size. A road-based ERS can supply energy to almost all types of electric vehicles [...]

  • IP0290 - Modelling principles and approaches for the evaluation of combination scenarios of stationary and dynamic charging infrastructure for road freight transport in Germany
    Leon KIEFER

    In order to achieve climate neutrality by 2045, the German Climate Protection Act stipulates a mandatory reduction of 65% in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 compared with the reference year 1990. In the transport sector, which is particularly challenged due to a lack of emission reductions so far, a relatively small number of heavy-duty vehicles cause a large share of emissions. Although there is [...]

  • IP0371 - Reaching goals in time – The road taking heavy goods vehicles to Paris by 2030
    Markus STAUB

    Dynamic charging of heavy-duty vehicles (HDV) via overhead contact lines (OCL) enables interoperability for future zero emission trucking on most frequented road freight corridors by normative standardization work. For this dynamic charging solution, there is concrete interest from numerous countries in the form of feasibility studies or implementation considerations. Against this background, [...]

  • IP0513 - The electric road: an efficient solution to decarbonize road transport
    Bernard JACOB

    The EU has set out very ambitious targets for reducing GHG emissions from road transport by 2030, which need to go beyond the conventional framework. All achievable solutions should be investigated and the most efficient ones should be implemented to fulfil these objectives. The main technologies for decarbonisation of road transport are: biogas, biodiesel, battery electric vehicles (BEV) and charging [...]
