4th Electric Road Systems Conference (ERSC2020), 12–13 May 2020 in Lund, Sweden

Spreading the knowledge!

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

ERSC2020 aims to bring together leading researchers, policy makers, developers, and transportation professionals to exchange and share their experiences about all aspects of ERS in an international setting. The conference also aims to bridge theory and practice by providing a platform for the presentation of ERS technologies. The conference will include visits to a demonstration site for ERS along a public road and a technology exhibition.

In addition to the possibility of visiting a demonstration site for the ERS solution in Lund, the conference will be visited by representatives from the SmartRoad Gotland project, an electric road consortium led by Electreon AB and 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!

Tomas Eneroth, Minister for Infrastructure

The venue for ERSC2020 is Medicon Village in Lund, which is easily accessed by transit from Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup.

Workshops

To stimulate further discussions during the conference, we are offering the opportunity to participate in one of the following workshops:

  • Electricity supply to ERS (net electricity load, demand, balancing, and other challenges)
  • 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.

Exhibition booth

The Exhibition area offers you the opportunity to meet partners, present your company, show participants your products, service or solutions and demonstrate research results on your booth.
