eHighway - Electrified heavy duty road transport

 Patrik Akerman
Description: Length of electric network: 4,000 km; Infrastructure costs: 2.2 million €/km; Maintenance 2.5% of investment per year. Additional vehicle costs: per today 50,000 € / truck; per 2050 19,000 € per truck; share of direct electric traction: 60% in 2050. The path forward focuses on the electrification of highly frequented routes. The German Federal Environment Agency (UBA ) commissioned the independent German Öko-Institute to make a comprehensive strategy for traffic energy supply until 2050: Final version to be published in 2016. Covers all modes of transport refers to following options for long haul road freight transport. Carbon neutral fuels (sustainable biofuels, synthetic fuels from renewables), Fuel cell electric vehicle (hydrogen from renewables), Direct use of electricity (electric road systems)
