Almedalen: Electric Garden gathers panel about zero-emission zones and AR experience

After last year’s success, the Electric Garden is taking over Visby once again to share the latest on electrification and promote discussions on how to support the transition to more sustainable cities.

Innovation will be at the center of Almedalen’s Electric Garden day on June 27, when attendees will have the opportunity to experience the complete Einride ecosystem on AR (augmented reality) and meet with the team.

The day will begin at 8.30 with a breakfast on Blockgränd 6, followed by the panel “Heavy-duty transportation: The fast and effective way to reduce emissions in cities”, gathering transportation and sustainability experts. The program will continue with panels and a press conference and end with an Electric Mingle.

Einride will also be present on panels and discussions throughout the week. See the team's schedule below:

8.00 - 10.00

Electric Garden panel & breakfast

Heavy-duty transportation: The fast and effective way to reduce emissions in cities

Blockgränd 6

More and more cities work to reduce emissions by implementing zero-emission zones. In the coming year, Stockholm will launch one of those zones, for example, and the Netherlands will begin phasing in zero-emission zones across 30 cities. The question is whether there’s a faster and more comprehensive way to reduce emissions and traffic by focusing on heavy-duty vehicles.

Electrification is already creating great opportunities for a shift in how heavy transport is carried out in cities. In the near future, this could lead to more intelligent cities where freight does not contribute to more emissions and congestion. But what policy tools are required for this to become a reality? Breakfast will be served at the beginning of the panel.

Participants: Lars Strömgren, Traffic councillor, City of Stockholm (MP) Maria Stockhaus, Member of the Swedish Parliament's traffic committee (M) Tobias Binder Gustavsson, Transportation and mobility expert, IVL Svenska miljöinstitutet Tomas Ohlsson, Founding Engineer, Einride

09.00 - 09.45

Properties that produce renewable energy – how can we maximize untapped potential?

Fastighetshubben, Adelsgatan 25

Swedish real estate companies have promising solar, wind and geothermal energy capacity. By generating excess capacity for the energy market, big steps could be taken to meet the energy supply of the future.
