Stockholm

Prepared for further expansion

Issues and choices

The Municipality of Stockholm has an overall goal with regard to greenhouse gases, which is to become a fossil fuel free city by 2050. To reach this goal, the City is working on several activities related to energy and transport. One example in the transport field is the City’s Clean Vehicles project in Stockholm. The objective of the project is to increase the number of clean vehicles in the Stockholm area. A support program for companies that use clean vehicles has also been launched.

Sales of biomethane have been a success in Stockholm over the last year. Volumes have increased considerably and developments are extremely positive. However, this success has generated some problems related to fuel supply.

In 2006, the demand exceeded supply. The Biogasmax project will aim at increasing the supply to meet the demands of biomethane customers. This involves producing more biomethane and expanding the infrastructure for filling stations. The breakthrough for biomethane has already started. The next step is further expansion.
