Stockholm on Its Way to Becoming “Emissions Free” by 2030
Stockholm is on its way to becoming one of the world’s first “emissions-free cities”, recently unveiling two permanent electric car charging stations in its city bounds with the promise of introducing 100 new stations in upcoming years. Supplied by Finnish utility Fortum, the first stations are free to use and offer free parking in front of the post (as of now, however, customers should expect to wait up to 8 hours (!) to fully recharge their drained battery).
The charging stations are part of the city’s green initiative to become an emissions free city (in terms of car traffic) by 2030. Fortum is doing its part by researching new SMS/ATM payment methods and accelerated charging systems for implementation in future stations.
