Slide-in, continuous supply of electrical power to electrical vehicles. Phase 2.
Research Project , 2013 – 2015

Road transport is expected to increase for the foreseeable future, while production of the primary main fuel (fossil crude oil) for these transports have passed its maximum capacity (peak oil). Supply of renewable fuels is one important measure that will help to replace a part of the oil. However it is not possible to replace all oil with renewable fuels. Thus electricity as energy carrier is of interest. In order to overcome the limited energy density of batteries continous supply of energy from road to vehicle could be a solution. This project aims at a deep evaluation of conductive and inductive technologies for continuous transfer of electricity to vehicles.If one or several of these technologies can be applied it would the benefits could be significant in combination with an increased share of renewable electricity being produced.The technologies will be tested now together with an analyzis of real hybrid/electrical vehicle installation, design.
