This area concerns societal issues related to electrified transportation. How is society affected by the transition to electromobility, and what effects does society have on electrified transport?
To reach Swedish climate goals, greenhouse gas emissions from transport must be reduced at a faster pace than today. One out of many measures to reach the goals is the electrification of personal mobility and goods transport. This poses challenges for society: for example, charging infrastructure needs to be installed, individuals may need to change their mobility habits and battery production needs to become more ecologically and socially sustainable. At RISE we have a broad knowledge base for doing research on such challenges. By using our knowledge, we may contribute to reaching climate goals as well as increasing social and economic sustainability.
