Since April 2018, electrical tests have been carried out at the demonstrator road close to Arlanda, with the electric truck charging while driving.
The truck has currently (April 2020) driven 532 km on the demonstrator while charging at the same time. During these tests, technical problems have been identified and solved by further development of the Elways ERS technology.
Elways has received support from the Swedish Energy Agency with six projects since 2009 and has tested with test circuits and installations on the way to a test track near Arlanda International Airport, Stockholm.

eRoadArlanda is one of several projects in the Swedish Transport Administration’s pre-commercial procurement of innovation for the development of electrified roads. The techniques that have been developed in recent years are based on conductive technology that use an electric rail installed in roads to power and recharge vehicles during their journey.
The Swedish Transportation Agency launched a precommersial procurement of electric roads in 2013. In 2014 Elways technology in the consortium eRoadArlanda was selected to perform detailed design of a two kilometers electric road outside Arlanda Airport. In 2015 the consortium and one other consortium each won a project of electrifying two kilometers road.
Swedish Energy Agency is a government agency that works for safe, environmentally friendly and efficient energy systems. Energy Agency operates in various sectors of society to create conditions for efficient, sustainable and a cost-effective Swedish energy supply.Since the beginning, the Energy Technology Department at Swedish Energy Agency has contributed to Elways’ development. SEA has made six contributions.
