European Long-distance Electric Clean Transport Road Infrastructure Corridor (ELECTRIC)


This project aims to create an open access fast charging corridor along major highways connecting Sweden, Denmark, Germany and The Netherlands to allow green travel between these countries.


Part of the project will be dedicated to a study on interoperability, the framework for a sustainable infrastructure set up and network planning. The pilot project will install a total of 155 chargers along the main motorways: 30 in The Netherlands, 23 in Denmark, 35 in Sweden and 67 in Germany. 


The new electric vehicle transport road will help accelerate electric vehicle uptake in northern Europe and will serve as best practice to other European countries.
