SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY: SWEDEN SHOWS HOW IT’S DONE
Stockholm is a forerunner in green initiatives, and Keolis Sverige supports the city’s sustainable mobility policy and drive to reduce carbon emissions. Here’s he a closer look at a subsidiary and its bus operations that epitomise the Group's environmental commitments.

The end of diesel

Thirty-five percent of the 1,000 buses operated by Keolis in the Swedish capital run on renewable, low-carbon biogas, produced through treatment of the city’s wastewater. Other vehicles have swapped diesel for biodiesel, bioethanol, or biodiesel-electric hybrid engines.

These tried and tested solutions mean 100% of network buses run on alternative energies.

Electro-mobility in motion

In Göteborg, Keolis Sverige operates three fully electric buses that run on electricity generated by wind and waterpower. There are also eight buses with highly innovative hybrid technology. This fleet of eight electric hybrid vehicles produces up to 90% less pollution than traditional buses.
In Karlstad, Keolis Sverige also runs three 100% electric 10-meters buses. During the autumn of 2018, they will be accompanied with four 100% electric buses. These four buses will recharge their batteries with a so-called pantograph at the route termini. 

 

Focusing on renewable energy

Thanks to investment by SL, Stockholm’s public transport authority, Keolis' Swedish subsidiary benefits from a ’green’ depot for a hundred of its buses. Photovoltaic panels and geothermal systems provide 25% of energy consumed by the building, and the vehicle wash station uses rainwater.
