Gothenburg the test bed

Gothenburg has in a relatively short period of time transitioned from being a town of heavy industry to a more appealing and greener metropolis by the sea. Among other things, we've created conditions for sustainable and attractive public transport.

We achieve this through collaboration. One example of successful collaboration in Gothenburg is how we've gathered 15 stakeholders from industry, research and society to work together to develop, test and demonstrate new solutions for the future. This collaboration is known as ElectriCity. Within ElectriCity we create a platform for developing and testing services and products that can contribute to more attractive public transport. Examples include new bus stop solutions, traffic control systems and safety concepts, and energy supply and storage systems.
