eHighway - hosted webinar

Register for the webinar now and learn from experts on electrified trucking via overhead contact lines

Overhead contact line trucks are being trialed on two sections of the German Autobahn. This solution has been investigated extensively, regarding technical questions, feasibility and benefits of a large-scale implementation.

This webinar allows experts to give 10 min speeches summarizing their work and findings, followed by a moderated Q&A discussion on the implications to achieve sustainable long-haul road transport. 


There will also be plenty of time for your questions.


The webinar took place on May 20th, 2020 from 2:30pm to 4pm and a recording of it can be watched by signing up below.
