Briefly abut Anders:
Anders Grauers is an associate professor at Chalmers University of Technology and a system specialist within the Swedish Electromobility Centre. His research is on how electric vehicles, their charging strategies and the charging infrastructure should be designed to meet different users’ needs in a cost-effective way.

What will Anders present:
This presentation will show that HCT trucks are just as suitable to be electric as smaller trucks. The choice between providing the energy from Batteries, Hydrogen or Electric roads depends mainly on how the trucks are operated and where.


Bo Ekman, Senior consultant, Vejdirektoratet / DRD (Danish Road Directorate)

Brifely about Bo:
Bo Ekman er ansat i Transportanalyseafdelingen i Vejdirektoratets Planlægningsdivision. Han har beskæftiget sig med strategisk transportplanlægning i en årrække, herunder særligt udviklingsmuligheder og udfordringer for infrastruktur og trafik.  Aktuelt er automatisering af bilparken, selvkørende teknologi samt med grøn omstilling af trafikken i fokus.

What will Bo talk about?
The Road Directorate is carrying out an analysis of the possibilities for catenary lines on the Øresund-Femern section. The purpose of the analysis is to create a basis for deciding whether work should be continued with the establishment of catenary lines in the transport corridor between Øresund and Fehmarn, or whether one should await foreign experience and the development of alternative solutions for decorbonisation of heavy transport. The analysis includes an overall outline project as well as an assessment of the social economy of the project. As part of the analysis, an assessment must be made of costs for construction and operation, how much of the truck traffic can be electrified with the solution, and how big the CO2 saving is. Any consequences for road safety, noise and the flow of other traffic will also be highlighted. Finally, the expected development of alternative green conversion options for heavy transport will be included in the analysis, just as the significance of Denmark's neighboring countries' investments in overhead line installations will be analysed.
