Quality of Renewable Energy Utilization in Transport in Sweden
Strömstad Akademi.
2015 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Renewable energy utilization in transportation (RES-T) is a long way behind its utilization in power (RES-E)and heat (RES-H) sectors. International and national environmental policies have recently given a lot ofemphasis on this problem. For that reason information is sought on how to implement solutions bothpolitically and technologically. As Sweden is a global leader in this area, it can provide valuable examples. In2012 Sweden became the first country to reach the binding requirement of the European Union for at least10 % share for renewable energy in transport energy consumption. But qualitative development has beeneven stronger than quantitative. Among the success stories behind qualitative progress, most noteworthyare those created by innovative municipal policies. By 2030 Sweden aims to achieve fossil fuel independentroad transport system and by 2050 completely carbon neutral transport system in all modes of transport.
