The World’s first electric road for heavy transport vehicles has been launched by which country?
Sweden has recently launched a test stretch of an electric road in Sandviken to conduct tests with electric power for hybrid heavy transports on public roads. With this, Sweden has become the first country in the world to have electric road. The tests will be conducted on the parts of road E16 and will continue till 2018. They will provide knowledge of how electric roads work in practice and whether the technology can be used in the future. The experiment is based on the government’s goal of energy efficiency and a fossil fuel-free vehicle fleet by 2030 and will contribute to strengthening Sweden’s competitiveness.
