About us

ElectriCITY is a citizenship-driven innovation platform that was formed in 2012. The organization, which operates in Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm, aims to create the most climate-friendly district in Sweden.

The operations of ElectriCITY are run under the overall project name Hammarby Sjöstad 2.0. Within the organization there are about 30 sustainability and environmental projects, several of which take place in collaboration with companies, research organizations and universities.

Specifically, it is about transforming the climate agreement from Paris into local energy and environmental measures through the introduction of smart and renewable energy, sustainable transport, energy efficient houses, electric buses and electric cars. Here Hammarby Sjöstad works as a test bed and demo for new sustainable solutions, copied for other districts and municipalities, both in Sweden and abroad. The ambition is to reach the Paris agreement goals already 2030.

ElectriCITY is an economic association and has about 50 members and partners from business, research institutes and the city of Stockholm. The chairman is Ann-Sofi Gaverstedt, who is responsible for trade promotion and sustainability at Teknikföretagen. Allan Larsson, former chairman and founder, acts as senior adviser.

Join us

We arrange three ElectriCITY days a year, as members and partners report from respective steering groups and set the agenda for ElectriCITY’s upcoming action plan. What future scenarios and challenges we will try and find business solutions for.

ElectriCITY aims to be at the forefront of smart energy, sustainable transport, sharing economy/recycling and research. By electrifying and digitizing our projects in the Hammarby Sjöstad 2.0 test bed, our hope is to reach the climate targets set in Paris by 2050, already in 2030.

Members and partners can participate in several projects and it is in meetings between members that new collaborations in projects can occur.
