ERSO (ERS Operator) –

the actor that connects

ERS users with suppliers


Research questions

1. How could ERSOs role be analysed in a small-scale ERS deployment?

2. How could ERSOs role be analysed in a large-scale ERS deployment?



ERSOs role in small-scale ERS deployment



Who is ERSO?

• Suppliers of power transfer technology

• Vehicle OEMs offering vehicle as a service (VaaS)

• Energy suppliers that offer subscriptions to users and possibly also energy receivers



ERSOs relationship with suppliers?

• Strong relationship with one ER provider and one/two energy providers

• Payment for ERS usage

• Simplified access control and metering



ERSOs relationship with users?

• Important developing relationships with local goods owners

• Collaboration between haulage companies and goods owners

• Ensuring availability of electric supply and attractive services



ERSOs role in large-scale ERS deployment



Who is ERSO?

• ERSOs from different sectors

• Competition on a mature and standardized ERS market

• Differentiation through unique business models



ERSOs relationship with suppliers?

• Relationship with multiple ERS suppliers and owners over different regions

• Standardized contracts and metering systems to allow for roaming

• Facilitating interoperability between different ERS alternatives



ERSOs relationship with users?

• ERSOs compete on a market to attract users, mainly forwarding market

• Focused on multimodal transportation

• Integration with other disruptive technologies such as

autonomous transportation



Implications for Denmark

• ERS an important element of a wider system-of-systems when planning for transport electrification

• Join ongoing collaboration on ERS between Germany – Sweden

• Create conditions for investments in ERS infrastructure and vehicles

• The world’s first wireless electric road system for cars, buses, and trucks on public roads

• The longest wireless ERS in the world

• The world’s first wireless electric road system demonstrated at highway speed

• The first battery electric articulated truck Sweden (dragbil)

• The first super-cap bus in Sweden


Smartroad Gotland will demonstrate…
