ElectriCITY is a citizenship-driven innovation platform that was formed in 2014. 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 Charlotte Eisner, who is sales manager and responsible for brand activation and business development at the car company NEVS. Allan Larsson, former chairman and founder, works as a senior advisor.
