TRANSrisk partner Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) organised the High Level Policy Event "Decarbonising transport in the EU: scenarios for Swedish road freight in a global context" on 18th October 2018, at the Münchenbryggeriet Event & Konferens conference centre in Stockholm, Sweden.
The event summarised the work implemented within the TRANSrisk case study in Sweden and presented the respective findings. The case study explored the potential transition pathways that could be exploited in the decarbonisation of the Swedish road freight sector. More particularly, researcher Björn Nykvist (SEI) presented three alternative scenarios for road freight decarbonisation by 2045, generated via extensive stakeholder participation. Supplementary, researchers Maria Taljegard (Chalmers University of Technology), Olle Olsson (SEI), and Max Åhman (Lund University) presented content and reflections on core components of each of these scenarios related to electric road systems, biofuels, electrification, and hydrogen.
Moreover, Roberto Schaeffer (Professor and Director COPPE/Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and member of SEI Science Advisory Council), Malin Berg von Linde (Cambridge Econometrics), and Björn Nykvist (SEI) gave presentations on the challenges and opportunities of global relevance including policy challenges, the varying macro-economic effects, and prospects of upscaling the different options that Sweden spearhead.
