Abstract [en]

The widespread use of Electric Vehicles (EVs) has been one of the main directionsfor pursuing a sustainable future of road transport in which, the deployment ofthe associated charging infrastructures, static or dynamic, has been included as oneof the main cornerstones for its success. Different electrified road (eRoad) systemswhich allow for dynamic charging of EVs by transferring electrical power from theroad to the vehicle in-motion, either in a conductive or contactless way, are underactive investigation. One of the important tasks in feasibility analysis of suchinfrastructure is to quantitatively assess its environmental performance and, thus,the consequential influences to the sustainability of road electrification as a whole.Having this concern in mind, in this study, a systematic LCA study is carried out in which the environmental impacts from the different life cycle stages have beencalculated and compared among several promising eRoad systems. In a next step,suitable strategies can be accordingly made to minimize these impacts in a most effectiveway; and more importantly, the LCA results of this study can serve as one ofthe important bases for conducting a more comprehensive and objective evaluationof the potential environmental benefits EVs could bring.
