ERSC2020 in May 2020 has been canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak

Update 2020-03-18:

We regret to inform you that the ERSC2020 on 12-13 May 2020 has been canceled, due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This very difficult decision has been taken after much deliberation and consideration.

The organizers are currently focusing on the immediate actions required due to the cancellation of the event, together with considerations on how the objectives of the conference could otherwise be realized. The organizers will be in contact with all participants in the near future.

We regret the disadvantage that this may cause participants, speakers and exhibitors.

Best regards,
The ERSC2020 organizing committee


Spreading the knowledge!

Electric Road Systems (ERS) include all technologies that enable the transfer of power to electric vehicles while in motion. With large potential for decarbonizing transports, decreasing air pollution, and increasing energy efficiency, ERS technologies and applications are steadily dispersing across the world.

ERSC2020 brings together leading researchers, policymakers, developers, and transportation professionals to exchange and share their experiences about all aspects of ERS in an international setting. The conference aims to bridge theory and practice by providing a platform for the presentation of different ERS technologies, including a site visit to Evolution Road, a demonstration site for ERS along a public road as well as a technology exhibition.

In addition to the possibility of visiting Evolution Road, the conference will be visited by representatives from the SmartRoad Gotland project, an electric road consortium led by Electreon AB  financed by the Swedish Transport Administration.

The transport sector needs to adjust in order to reduce emissions – and in a hurry. Electric roads are an important part of the solution and in Sweden we are among the world leaders. This electric road conference is important for gathering expertise, sharing results and experiences to accelerate the development of electric roads in Sweden and internationally. See you in Lund!

  • Standardization
  • Business models for ERS, including e.g. access control technology, payment solutions, and sensors
  • ERS as part of “smart road” – how do we use the opportunity of digitalization?
  • The impact of ERS  –  on road maintenance & operation, and the environment (humans, animals, and nature)
  • Actors and acceptance of ERS in Europe

Further information about how to register your interest in participating at a particular workshop will be posted here shortly.
