What can the Australian transportation sector learn from Sweden in order to move towards a greener sustainable future?
As one of the largest contributors of CO2 emissions within the transportation sector in Australia*, the electrification of commercial vehicle fleets, including trucks and buses, provides an excellent opportunity for Australia to reduce its environmental impact. Due to its rapid uptake of electric bus and truck technology, Sweden provides an excellent reference point from which the Australian transportation sector can learn, in order to move towards net zero emissions.
- What are the key trends in Sweden?
- What are the emerging trends and opportunities in Australia?
- What are the barriers to the adoption of electric trucks and buses?
- What technologies are available today and in the future?
Join this Swedish Australian Chamber of Commerce webinar moderated by Nathan Gore-Brown, Sustainable Transport Consultant at Movement and the following panellists will share their insights, also making reference to where electric truck and bus technology has been successfully implemented in Sweden and Australia.
- Stefan Widlund, City Mobility Director, Volvo Buses, Gothenburg Sweden
