The need for sustainable and smart mobility is becoming increasingly critical in urban areas all over the world. To create a green, smart and sustainable city, mobility is key.
Today, the transport sector is still to a large extent dependent on fossil fuels. As cities are becoming more populated, policy instruments and behavioural changes are needed to meet the increasing challenges, as well as smarter and more efficient technical solutions.
Sweden has a long history of sustainable transport and Swedish companies are strongly committed to offering cutting-edge solutions across all modes of mobility. In addition to biofuels, Sweden has dedicated resources to the development and implementation of electric and autonomous car technologies, batteries, charging infrastructure and fuel cells.
Gothenburg, the second-biggest city in Sweden and home to big, international companies such as Volvo Group, is at the forefront when it comes to sustainable transportation. The city has introduced congestion charges and low-emission zones for heavy vehicles. The bulk of Sweden’s biofuel is produced in Sweden and the testbed ElectriCity brings together industry, research and society in the development and testing of solutions for next-generation sustainable public transport.
