Clean Disruption News: World’s First Electric Car Charging-Road Opens In Sweden — The Road Charges Car Batteries On The Go!
The world’s first electrified road for charging cars and other vehicles has been opened in Sweden. Situated near Stockholm, the project was initiated in the wake of Sweden becoming non-dependent on fossil fuels from 2030.
The road connects the Stockholm Arlanda airport to a logistics centre nearby, called PostNord. As of now, the construction spans just 2km. The road is separated into 50m sections; each of which is powered only when a vehicle moves over it. When the vehicle stops moving, the charging process ends. The amount of energy consumption is then calculated and added to the user’s monthly electricity bill. The ‘dynamic charging’ process is more convenient than normal roadside-charging. If widely implemented, this allows for the usage of smaller battery-packs.
