New study: Electric buses contribute to better health for residents
26 April 2022
Lower noise levels, better sleep and reduced fatigue and a sense of feeling low. These are some of the effects for the residents along route 60 in Gothenburg after the buses on the route were replaced by electric buses. This according to a new study initiated by the ElectriCity collaboration and carried out by the University of Gothenburg.
Better urban enviroment through geofencing
17 December 2021
Gothenburg is at the forefront when it comes to testing geofencing in traffic. The technology makes it possible to digitally regulate the speed, emissions and access of connected vehicles to special zones and has been tested within the framework of ElectriCity.
Improved urban environment one year after the launch of 145 electric buses
16 December 2021
One year ago 145 new electric buses were introduced in Gothenburg, Mölndal and Partille and the climate-related and environmental benefits have now been examined. And the positive results are clear. A halving of nitrogen dioxide emissions and a reduction of carbon dioxide emissions by 10 percent are some of the positive effects that electrification has led to during the past year. The nitrogen dioxide savings correspond to the annual emissions from just over 8,000 average cars.
Passengers positive about autonomous buses - unique study shows
16 November 2021
In a unique study, passengers' experiences and thoughts about autonomous buses have been examined and the results show that many are positive about the new technology. The study is the first to be done with a full-length bus and is in part funded through ElectryCity.
Electric Worksite begins testing electric construction machines in Gothenburg
24 September 2021
The testing of electric work machines within the Electric Worksite project are now underway. In September, the tests began with an electric compact crawler excavator and an electric compact wheel loader in Färjenäsparken in Gothenburg, where the City Park and Nature Administration is constructing a park by the Göta Älv. In the near future, more tests will follow in urban environments, as a first step in a large system demonstration. Everything from the logistics around the machines to the actual maneuvering and power supply issues, will be tested to get important data for larger demonstrations in the future.
New tests on electric buses within the ElectriCity collaboration
12 July 2021
After the successful tests on ElectriCity's demonstration arena on route 55 and EL16 in Gothenburg, the collaboration is now starting a new test bed for electric buses. The purpose is to accelerate innovation for public transport through tests in real urban traffic environments.
New cooperation electrifies construction sites in western Sweden
22 June 2021
In a new ElectriCity project, several big actors are now taking concrete steps to electrify construction sites. With a focus on, among other things, building and construction projects and street maintenance, they will test how electric work machines can work in real environments in Gothenburg. Electrification in the sector is a central part of the adjustment required to achieve important environmental and climate goals.
Determined to accelerate the change to a fully electric, climate-neutral future
3 June 2021
When Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar's CEO, visited Lindholmen Connected, he talked about both his vision for future mobility and Polestar's journey as a company and brand. Innovation and passion are important elements when looking ahead to create the first truly climate-neutral car by 2030.
