ELONROADs concept involves a conductive rail laid on top of the road. It has inclined sides to make it smooth when changing lanes. Elonroad is 5 cm high and 30 cm wide.
Charging infrastructure with electric roads and automatic park charging.
PLACED ON THE ASPHALT
Elonroad is easy to install with only little effect on the asphalt. This reduces installation time and facilitates service and maintenance.
Its unique design admits short rail segments to be powered separately . This leads to a safe electric environment in cities.
FREE PIC-UP DESIGN
The picup connects to the electric road. It´s placed under the vehicle and offers an economic and simple solution for all types of vehicles. It´s free for car manufactures to develop.
Elonroads electric road and park charger transfers high power up to 240kW with a 97% efficiency.
The cost for the electric road is preliminarily calculated to be
0,6 million Euro / km.
Over a 10 year perspective The cost of electric road + used electricity
= the cost of otherwise used diesel or bio fuel.
WORKS FOR ALL
The Elonroad electric road system works for all electric vehicles:
cars, taxis, buses and trucks.
Compared with overhead lines that doesn´t work for cars. Cars stand for 60% of the transport greenhouse gases.
In Sweden the transport sector stands for 30% of greenhouse gases.
A shift to electric transports would help reach the goal of slowing down climate change.
The electricity needed for all vehicle transports would be about 10-15% of the total consumption.
Investments in clean energy should go hand in hand with charging infrastructure.
A rail consisting of short grounded segments arranged along a single track. Every second segment can switch to positive when a car passes over it. 3 contactors will provide for a steady current rectified with diodes before charging the battery.
Rain passes under the road. Snow can be removed by a special plow we designed. Ice on the top surface will be melted with a heating system. A grounded strip will stop leaking current from positive segment under the vehicle.
All vehicles will have batteries that will supply energy for driving on non-electric roads. The electric road is a charging infrastructure placed on major roads and highways. The rail is built in intervals. Batteries take over automatically at exits and roundabouts.
