Volvo Group to experiment with “electric roads” | Running Green content from Fleet Owner

In collaboration with the Swedish Transport Administration (STA), the Volvo Group plans to study the potential for building what it calls “electric roads,” whereby city buses can be charged with electricity from within the road itself with the bus simultaneously in full operation.

Volvo said it hopes to build a 300 to 500 meter (a roughly 984 to 1,640 foot) electric road for test operations in central Gothenburg, Sweden, sometime next year.

“Vehicles capable of being charged directly from the road during operation could become the next pioneering step in the development towards reduced environmental impact, and this is fully in line with our vision of becoming the world leader in sustainable transport solutions,” noted Niklas Gustavsson, Volvo’s executive VP for corporate sustainability & public affairs.
