Hello; I'm worried that this feels like an advert. It isn't. This is just a brief overview of the technology, and so far this is just a 2km test track, one of several. But this seems like such an obvious-in-hindsight idea (to me, at least!) that I found it very difficult to frame it in any way other than "I think this is a good thing"! In Lübeck, Germany, there's one of several eHighway test projects: overhead catenary wires, where electric trucks with pantographs can pull power directly from the grid. I get it that it is just like a train, and this electrified road based transport has been done before (trams). But the hybrid nature of this is a delightfully good idea. The trucks can have back up batteries that allow then to do the last 50 miles off grid and then charge up when they get back on the electrified highway. We have electric buses using this technology running in my city for almost a century now. It's called a trolleybus. I never understood why there wasn't a bigger push in adopting those wherever possible. Trucks seem like the natural next thing to apply this to.
