Sector(s): Carbon reduction / Low-carbon transition, ICT & smart data, Smart city
Stockholm is aiming to become completely fossil-fuel free by 2040, with the interim goal of reducing CO2 equivalent to 2.3 tons per citizen by 2020. It is therefore taking part in GrowSmarter, an innovative Horizon 2020 project that forms part of the European Union’s drive to develop smart cities of the future. GrowSmarter brings together cities and industry to demonstrate and integrate the uptake of 12 smart solutions in the three Lighthouse Cities of Stockholm, Cologne and Barcelona. Among other initiatives, Stockholm will introduce electric vehicles; pursue energy efficient renovation; and use waste heat in the district heating system.
