Fully electrified bus traffic on several routes in Gothenburg, procurements of a record number of electric buses, indoor bus stops and countless tests. But also a broader scope focusing on, among other things, the electrification of commuter ferries and construction sites, air quality studies and urban planning. These are some of the results that the ElectriCity collaboration has produced. Here you can read more about our progress and how we are using our experiences in the continued work on more electrification for a sustainable society.
Since the ElectriCity collaboration was founded in 2015, much has happened. What began in tests of electrified bus traffic on a limited scale within a demo arena has developed into fully electrified bus lines and Europe's largest procurement of electric buses. At the same time, the number of partners has increased, with ABB and Transdev being the latest additions. But not least, the number of demo arenas has increased, just like our efforts on developing more initiatives connected to the cleaner and quieter electrification.
Important results and ongoing activities
Spin-off-effects and indirect results
In addition to the results listed above, ElectriCity has also paved the way for new cooperations, tender processes and further research. Among other things, major tenders have been held for more electric buses in Gothenburg. Some other examples include cooperative projects relating to the standardisation of buses’ IT systems, research projects on noise and air quality measurements along electric bus routes and tests of a new steering system (Volvo Dynamic Steering) on route 55. The impact that electrified transport systems can have in a city has also been demonstrated and has led to new discussions about urban planning.
