A proposal for a European standard covering electric roads has been put forward by SEK Svensk Elstandard, the Swedish organisation for standardisation of the electricity sector. This would include technology for transmitting electrical power to vehicles while they are in motion.
However there are questions over the cost of electrifying roads. A trial project has been carried out in Örebro in Sweden. The Swedish power company Eon believes it would cost around €957 million to provide electric power to 1,000km of roads in the country. Eon has been involved in the trial section of electric road in Örebro.
