Acellerating innovation in road-based transport

Our premise. Present highways are WAY out of date! They must be transformed quickly into a new kind of road system: faster, safer, cheaper to build, with much higher capacity. Best of all, they should enable conventional electric cars to have a limitless range. The TEV project shows how all this can be done right now without a single technical breakthrough.

Our organization. We are a nonprofit open source project bringing together universities, governments, companies and individuals to shape the highway of the future and bring it into existence in the next decade or two. Be part of the revolution. Contribute your ideas.

Our aim. The next phase of the project is to have a focused conference on the TEV system – and its variations – scheduled for late 2015 (by invitation only this time).

Please bear with us. We are currently updating our website. In the meantime please view our current resources including videos of the award-winning highway design that launched our project – plus a 70 page technical booklet.:

Watch as we convert the fast lane of a highway into a TEV lane which can handle 10 times the traffic!

A virtual ride on TEV: how TEV’s electric highway works

Will Jones introduces TEV: the transportation model for the 21st century

Anatomy of a TEV track

This elevated version of a TEV track is one of many options for TEV electric highway tracks, which can also be directly on the ground, underground in tunnels, stacked, etc.

The need for TEV: facts and figures on TEV’s advantages

TECHNICAL BOOKLET

The Technical Booklet is where we discuss TEV in depth, covering topics such as vehicle design, computer software, passenger capacity comparisons, energy consumption, track design, parking, stations and stops, energy supplies and project startup strategy.

This is a “must read” for those who have grasped the TEV concept and want to know more.  Particularly useful are the passenger capacity comparisons which highlight the often undiscussed limitations of alternative methods of transport.
