Best of Sweden

The eRoadArlanda

Recently Sweden's first electronic roads opened, allowing their novel EroadArlanda trucks to transport mail in trucks that are powered directly from the road.

Forbes reports that Sweden aims to have a 'Fossil Free' transportation system in place by 2030.

β€œThe end goal of eRoadArlanda – and other projects that the STA is working on – is that the Swedish government wants to move away from gasoline and diesel and have a fossil fuel-free transportation system in pace by 2030. For now, eRoadArlanda is meant to "generate knowledge, experience and decision data that is conducive to the creation of a platform for the electrification of larger transport routes in Sweden," according to the project's website.”

An ambitious, but possibly life changing development.

#1 Definitely! I think there may be some of these in America as well now, so they seem to be spreading fast!
