ElectriCITY is a citizenship-driven innovation platform that was formed in 2014. The organization, operating in Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm, aims to create the most climate-friendly district in Sweden.
The operations of ElectriCITY are run under the overall project name Hammarby Sjöstad 2.0. Within the organization there are about 30 sustainability and environmental projects, several of which take place in collaboration with companies, research organizations and universities.
Specifically, it is about transforming the climate agreement from Paris into local energy and environmental measures through the introduction of smart and renewable energy, sustainable transport, energy efficient houses, electric buses and electric cars. Hammarby Sjöstad works as a testbed and demo for new sustainable solutions, copied for other districts and municipalities, both in Sweden and abroad. We want to reach the Paris agreement by 2030.
A testbed in a real environment with real people investing in innovations that are profitable under the following areas: Smart energy, sustainable transport, circular economy, digitalization.
The initiative has been working for 7 years on energy efficiency activities in close collaboration with academia (KTH, RISE) and private companies. The reduction of energy consumption is well documented by all involved.
The city district consists of 53 housing associations including some 10.000 apartments with 20.000 inhabitants.
The Living Labs are ongoing. For further information please consult our website:
