A smart road on the Swedish island of Gotland uses technology from Electreon for dynamic wireless mobile power transfer
Sweden is to commission the world's first smart road that can charge inductively both an electric truck and a bus while in full motion.

"We, the Swedish Transport Administration, believe that electric roads are an important contribution to reducing CO2-emissions from heavy transportation. Demonstrating and evaluating new technical solutions for electric routes is one of our most important steps in our long-term plan for a potential rollout of electrified routes on the heavy road network in Sweden," said Jan Pettersson, program manager for the Swedish Transport Administration.

"Electreon's wireless electric road technology makes it possible to electrify truck fleets economically without the need to carry huge batteries and stop for charging and without creating a visual hazard. The selection of Electreon by the Swedish government after careful filtration testifies to the recognition of the potential of the technology to bring the global electrification revolution to the next critical stage of full implementation," said Oren Ezer, CEO of Electreon in Israel.
