The fuel ran out, the car stopped. This is how a car stops on the road and a terrible accident happens. In order to save lives from such accidents, Sweden has made arrangements to charge cars moving on the road this time.
An electric road has recently been opened outside the country's capital, Stockholm. Where electric vehicles will be charged during movement. This road, which is only two kilometers long, connects Stockholm Orlanda Airport with the nearest distribution department. This electric road is being considered as an important step in Sweden's strategic plan for climate change.
The country is working to get rid of fossil fuels by 2030. In order to achieve this goal, emissions from the transport sector alone will have to be reduced by 60 percent. The country hopes that if it expands, Sweden's electric roads will be able to charge electric cars. As a result, the demand for traditional motor vehicles will continue to decline.
The construction of one kilometer of electric road has cost 1 million Euros. Yet it is 50 percent less expensive than installing an upper tram line of equal distance.
Sweden currently has 500,000 kilometers of roads, of which 20,000 are highways. Hans Sell, chief executive of E-Road Orlando, said that if at least 20,000 kilometers of highways could be electrified, that's enough. The distance between the two highways should not be more than 45 kilometers, and electric cars can easily travel that far
