A Scandinavian charging infrastructure for electric trucks
The aim of the project is to promote intra- and interregional, sustainable, interoperable electrified transport systems.
About the project
The project to develop a Scandinavian charging infrastructure for electric lorries will establish a network of players and organisations to identify common requirements and share knowledge about existing and future regulations, financial incentives, system solutions, services and products for electrified lorry transport.
It will bring together a group of stakeholders from the regions involved who want to move forwards with work on a shared system for intra and interregional electrified road transport, which will be validated over the course of a number of demonstrations.
The objective is to promote intra- and interregional, sustainable, interoperable electrified transport systems.
The project aims to establish a consistent level of knowledge about the requirements for the stationary public charging infrastructure and electrified lorry transport over a five to ten-year period.
The project will also create a consortium of players who are prepared to make an application for a demonstration of a system of electrified intra- and interregional lorry transport, including the charging infrastructure.
Funding bodies and key partners: Intereg Öresund-Kattegatt-Skagerak, Region Västra Götaland, Region Halland, Region Skåne, Business Region Göteborg, Region Huvedstaden, Viken County Council.
The webinar entitled "Now we are electrifying Sweden's lorry transport system" was held on 18 November, and included presentations from industry, universities and the public sector, together with discussions about the next steps towards a changeover to electric operation in the transport sector.
Count with Anders!
On December 4, a workshop was held on the theme "It is cost-effective to drive an electric truck"! Led the workshop was Anders Grauers from Chalmers who gave an in-depth picture of different models and calculations that are useful before a shift to electric truck transport.
