Analysis: Four steps towards fossil free and sustainable transport

Henrik Ny writes a new analysis for the Swedish magazine Ekotransport. Plan society right from the start, reduce car dependency in transport, reduce fossil dependency in the car fleet and focus on new technologies such as Biochar and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS). These four steps towards fossil-free passenger transport are proposed by Henrik [...]

Application for a new research project: Sustainable introduction of electric snowmobiles

Snowmobiles powered by combustion engines causes noise and emissions that negatively affect both the drivers and the environment. Electric powered snowmobiles have no engine related emissions, and in line with other electric vehicles likely lower noise emissions. Earlier trials, e.g. 2011 in Östersund, have shown that the technology was immature. Electric snowmobiles that seems [...]

Electric bus noise measurements @ Västerås flygklubb

Within the electric bus study, noise measurements according to ISO 362-1:2015 of an Electric bus has been done in Västerås in late April. The aim was to find out the noise level during acceleration compared to a comparable gas bus, and we had successful results indicating that there is a big difference between those vehicles. Further [...]
