The present study aims at discussing relevant aspects for a potential roll-out of Electric Road Systems (ERS) on transnational corridors, as well as generally for ERS introduction in Europe.

Feasibility criteria have thus been developed in order to assess the following topics for specific potential ERS corridor projects

  • Technical aspects: Which technical prerequisites exist for ERS corridors and to which extent can they expected to be met?
  • Environmental aspects: Which effects can be expected on key environmental indicators?
  • Economic aspects: Can an ERS corridor pose a business case? Could it contribute to the improvement of ERS economy in general?
  • Political aspects: Would an ERS corridor implementation make sense from a political point of view?
