World's First Electrified Road For Charging Vehicles Opens in Sweden

Sweden opened the world’s first section of electrified road to the public, but it didn’t come cheap. The 1.2 miles of electrified roadway cost around $2.5 million. With more than 310,000 miles of roads in Sweden, including 12,427 miles of highway, electrifying all of them would be an incredibly costly proposition. It’s cheaper than expanding public transit, but still expensive. Sweden built the roads as part of its global warming goal of reducing transportation sector emissions 70 percent by 2030.

A fantastic step towards a renewable future. Surely this is a Scandi trend we should be following.
