Gothenburg is the second-largest city in Sweden and a real pioneer in areas like green bonds, smart district heating, and energy-efficient housing. Over the next 15 to 20 years, an ambitious infrastructure investment plan will be implemented in the city. Gothenburg has a strong automotive industry and is the Nordic region’s logistics hub.

The Swedish city is currently the scene of ElectriCity. The program is creating sustainable transportation solutions. After the successful two-year trial of the first electric bus route in Gothenburg set in motion in 2015, the Swedish city is adding a new route to its electric bus operations. In June 2018, two electrically powered high-capacity buses will start operating on route 16 under the ElectriCity venture.
