Electrification of transportation
The electrification of transportation is transforming our future.
Electrification and e-mobility solutions are key enablers for reducing CO2 emissions
At Vattenfall, we are committed to electrifying society as a way to help turn the tide on climate change. Electrification will be a key enabler for reducing CO2 emissions for businesses, industries, customers and society at large, enabling fossil fuels to be replaced by renewable and climate neutral energy. It’s happening across all areas, with focus on the areas where we can achieve the greatest benefits.
Transportation accounts for roughly one third of the world's energy consumption. This makes the transportation sector central to the realisation of a more sustainable energy system.
Ways to turn the tide
Vattenfall expects that e-mobility will play a key role in solving many of the challenges we face today with regard to energy use and urbanisation. Easily accessible charging infrastructure is a prerequisite for the transition to electric vehicles.
InCharge and other partnerships
Vattenfall develops and offers charging solutions for electric cars, buses and trucks. Together with our partners we have built one of Europe's largest charging networks, InCharge. InCharge is established in Sweden, Germany and the Netherlands, with further markets to be added. Vattenfall is also taking part in initiatives, including the eRoadArlanda pilot project in Sweden, to develop e-roads for electric trucks and other electric vehicles. E-roads will enable vehicles to be charged as they drive along them.
Why we created InCharge
A sustainable future needs sustainable transport. That’s why we created InCharge, a network of charging stations for electric cars.
