Attaining a fossil fuel-independent vehicle fleet in Sweden is a government objective that generates necessary investments into vehicle electrification. A mass market of electrified vehicles presents benefits, such as reduced greenhouse gas emissions, less oil dependence, less noise and the potential to drive indoors, as the air gets cleaner.
RISE offers expertise at the forefront of research, where our depth and reach are combined to create new knowledge and innovation. Research into electromobility focuses on technologies such as battery and hybrid systems, energy conversion, energy management and charging infrastructure, as well as user behaviour, new business models, policies and regulations. RISE has extensive experience in testing new electromobility solutions in real-world applications. For example, we were the first to implement and test vehicle charging solutions that could be managed by electricity companies, and we are involved in testing electric roads under actual operation.
