Construction materials make up 30-40 percent of goods moved around modern cities. A centralised logistics depot in Stockholm will help cut emissions associated with these journeys drastically, allowing materials to be moved in the most efficient way possible. Using hybrid-electric and ethanol fuelled vehicles will also help reduce emissions.
This is just one example of the kind of measures that GrowSmarter will deal with to improve the energy-efficiency of urban mobility in its demonstration cities.
Other examples include Sustainable delivery, Smart traffic management, Smart traffic management and Smart mobility solutions. To read about these measures and their results in the coming three years, visit the GrowSmarter website.
