The international Paris Agreement about the climate challenge (UNFCCC) calls for action in every aspect of the modern society. There is a need for decarbonizing transport all over the world both for freight and passengers. The sector is mobilized, and particularly the road transport, which represents more than 75% of global inland transport. Electrification of the road systems will be an important solution and contribution for the states to reach their climate goals in reduction of CO2-emissions. Electric Road Systems (“ERS” – also known as dynamic charging) can be one piece in the puzzle of how to reduce the transport systems’ contribution to CO2 emissions.

To promote knowledge within the field of ERS, PIARC (World Road Association) has launched a special Task Force to learn more about ERS, share knowledge between PIARC members, and also try to help PIARC members with guidance about this new and promising field.

PIARC is inviting experts, road operators, road administrations, industry as well as non-governmental organizations for a series of webinars between peers to present and discuss their knowledge and plans regarding electrification with focus on ERS.

This first webinar will address Technology Assessment and it be structured as follows:

  • A short introduction of PIARC and TF 2.2 framework for the webinar.
  • A series of presentations by panelists (upon invitation). Each panelist will have the possibility to present for 20 minutes.
  • A questions and answers long session (around 30 minutes), during which the audience will be able to ask questions and interact after the presentations.

Speakers include:

  • Jan Pettersson, Tafikverket and Chair of TF 2.2 Electric Road Systems
  • Oren Ezer, Electreon
  • Augustin Bareau, Engie
  • Karin Ebbinghaus, Elonroad
  • Josephine Adorelle, Evias
  • Patrik Akerman, Siemens
  • Takamitsu Tajima, Honda
  • Patrick Duprat, Alstom

The webinar will be held in English.
