The 4th Electric Road Systems Conference 2020 was instead held as a webinar (ERSW2020) on the 12th of May, 2020, due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

We are so thankful to all of you who attended, presented, asked questions, and organized the webinar!

52 extended abstracts were submitted to the original conference, from eight different countries (Sweden, Germany, Austria, Finland, Japan, India, Iran, and Italy). Contributions to each scientific topic were concluded and discussed during the webinar and can be further read in detail below in the Abstract Book.

Did you miss the opportunity to participate? No worries, a recording of the webinar in two parts can be found below, see Part 1 and Part 2: Panel Discussion. 

Once again, thank you all for your contributions!

Sincerely,
The ERSW2020 Organizing Committee

Unfortunately, we could not present the “National Plan for ERS in France” according to the final program, due to a technical problem. Please follow the link below to view the recorded presentation for National Plan for ERS in France!

National Plan for ERS in France: Presentaiton

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!

Program

Prepare yourself for two days filled with interesting paper presentations, discussions and workshops.
The official program will be presented here on March 6th, but you can already read more about our workshop themes here:

  • 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.

Note: Abstract submission is now closed!

Notification of acceptance: 6th of March 2020.
The page Call for Presentations has information about submission and topics suitable for the conference.
