10.000 apartments furnished with mobility

10.000 apartments furnished with mobility

We will convert 10 000 apartments to sustainable mobility through focus on the economics of parking and mobility funds. Through cooperation with property owners, landlords and housing companies we will develop a new way of implementing a sustainable mobility partnership. We will use the space that is today occupied for parking, and make the transformation from privately owned cars to a fleet of electrical shared mobility.

For many years the privately owned car has been a standard for our society. It has been a symbol for freedom, welfare and success. But this must change. Since the 1960´s we have had a Car Centric Design in our society and our cities. This is no longer an accepted solution to reach the climate goals and a sustainable world.

One of the biggest enablers for the car society is the cheap parking place. Cars need more than five parking places, and the land use of these parking spaces is a big problem to reach a sustainable city. In this project we will develop some new methods to investigate and collect data, and we will focus on outreach to the people living in the apartments. Most people that do not own a car doesn´t know that they pay for their neighbours parking space.

Based on this data driven changing process we will find new ways to implement a shared fleet of electrical vehicles. Most existing carsharing projects are test in a pilot with a small number of vehicles. This project is a big scale structural transformation of a city where 10.000 people are living. Together with landlords, public transport, property owners and companies we will start mobility funds as a solution and a way to transform the city. We strongly believe that most people understand the basic economic terminology, but they haven´t got the tools to use that on parking spaces. We need to focus on the best solutions for all inhabitants and we need to show them the future society.

This project is led by Move About, worlds first electrical car sharing solution and Scandinavia’s largest electrical mobility-as-a-service provider. This project will be a cooperation between scientists, organisations and property owners. This project will work as a role model for societal transformation of the transport system in the EU.

Swedish green Recovery

The timing of the European Green Deal and the Climate law is excellent. Since around the time of the Paris agreement, there is an impatient willingness to act in the business sector, and we need authorities to catalyse this development.

The Swedish 2030-secretariat was founded to support Sweden’s ambition to decarbonize the transport sector. The Swedish Climate Law set an ambitious sector target for transport –  70 percent reduction of carbon dioxide by 2030. Through 70 partners from industry, municipalities and organisations the 2030-secretariat is supporting this ambitious development, independent of technical solutions or political parties. We are convinced that we need to work in parallel on behaviour, fuels (all low carbon or zero emission fuels) and vehicle technologies. All is needed.

We invited partners to send in proposals that fit well within Green recovery under the Green Deal. We have collected some 30 proposals, mostly in Sweden, in different areas using different technologies. We, the 2030-secretariat, are a Coalition of the willing with a focus on the target year 2030. There are many initiatives brewing in Sweden.

We strongly support initiatives like the Green recovery fund, and we see an increasing interest to take part. In this work we would like to stress the following:

• Allow for a multitude of solutions. We do not know which technology will be decisive, but we do know that many different technologies will be needed

• Changing our behaviour and the use of digital mobility is as important as legislation for vehicles or fuels. The 2020’s is the decade of digitalization, let’s invite digital solutions into the mobility sector

• Avoid having the good alternatives compete. The future is a combo; electricity, hydrogen, biofuels, biogas and some of the new fuels entering the market

• Do not separate fuels in generations or levels of sophistication. We are interested in the greenhouse gas reduction potential of the fuels, not what they are called

We sense a strong willingness to move forward, a season of change that is both needed and welcome. We hope that these initiatives can inspire. If you like an idea – steal it, if you want to participate, contact the person listed by the project. But most importantly, get inspired by what is possible.

The Swedish 2030-secretariat is made up of 70 partners from industry, municipalities and organisations joined in one common goal – supporting Sweden in reaching a 70 percent reduction of CO2 in the Swedish transport sector by 2030. We work in three areas, all equally important: vehicle technology, fuels and electrification and behaviour. All three important areas that need to deliver if we are to reach the climate target for the transport sector. The 2030-secretariat is independent from individual companies and political parties and does not favour any specific technology or solution. The reduction of CO2 is what counts. We are equally inspired by entrepreneurship and innovation as we are with grit, the on-going task of increasing efficiency. We need all to reach the climate targets.
