Test beds for climate change
Hammarby Sjöstad 2.0 is an initiative that is implemented together with our members and partners. The goal is to create a climate-neutral district by 2030.
All our projects are carried out in close collaboration with universities, research institutes, businesses and citizens in Sjöstan. Hammarby Sjöstad 2.0, has become a unique test bed that attracts researchers from Swedish colleges and universities as well as leading academies around the world. The ambition is for Hammarby Sjöstad to be a first choice as a Swedish node in future EU projects on sustainable urban development.
We are happy to participate in research and innovation projects and in recent years we have both applied for and received grants for several innovation projects. Fundamental to our commitment is that the project should be able to be conducted locally but also that it should have a national and international focus, ie that the test bed should be copyable for other districts and cities in the world.
We have extensive experience of collaborating with RISE – Research Institutes of Sweden AB, KTH – Royal Institute of Technology, IVL – Swedish Environmental Institute and Energiforsk, all of which are members of ElectriCITY and contribute with scientific quality in the projects we carry out together.
