Overview

Background & Policy context

The Government has now instructed the Swedish Transport Administration to investigate and report on whether electric roads could eventually become part of the national road network in Sweden. The Transport Administration will also manage the part of the Sweden-Germany innovation partnership dealing with electric roads.

Objectives

The aim is to support the development of a variety of technical solutions for electric roads. The work in Sweden will take place alongside the Sweden-Germany innovation partnership, and cooperation between the countries is expected to improve the outcome.

Methodology

Estimates indicate that electric roads could lead to lower carbon dioxide emissions, greater energy efficiency in the transport system and reduced transport costs. The construction of electric roads could lead to job creation in the short term and increased economic efficiency in the longer term.
