Transport is a critical and pressing challenge in the decarbonisation of our energy systems, and an area with significant potential for innovation and green growth. The Nordic region has a vision of becoming the leading European region for the development, testing and use of more sustainable transportation systems. The Energy & Transport programme is central to this vision. The Energy & Transport programme is funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers, and steered by a Board representing the national energy and transport authorities of the Nordic countries.

 

Associated projects

Nordic Sustainable Intelligent Truck Hub

The project will provide an answer to the question how urban networks can be relieved from heavy trucks by exploring the synergies of a combination of intelligent services for truck parking information for last-mile delivery and ‘urban consolidation centres’. A concept solution will be developed to reduce distribution problems in cities and at the same time solve problems of “wild” parking of trucks in the urban area. By extending the Intelligent Truck Parking (ITP) concept with buffering of Heavey Goods…

Nordic Comparison on the future of road freight energy efficiency and CO2 emissions

The purpose of this study is to forecast the future of energy efficiency and CO2 emissions of Finnish, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian road freight transport until 2016 and 2030 in the light of past and current trends, as well as to recommend policy measures to achieve the energy efficiency and CO2 emission targets. The main deliverable of the project is an online tool for all stakeholders of road freight transport. The online tool contains the main results of the research…

Alcohol (Spirits) and Ethers as marine fuel

The main goal of the project is to test the use of methanol and di-methyl ether (DME) as shipping fuels in a full-scale pilot project and to find the best environmental and economic alternative for a sustainable and successful maritime transport industry

Nordic Sustainable Logistics Network

The Nordic Sustainable Logistics Network (or ‘No Slone’) brings together key players from five Nordic countries to establish a common Nordic network dedicated to improving cross-border business collaboration in the area of sustainable logistics. The project builds up a Nordic network that focuses on several different aspects of sustainable logistics. The network will establish an information portal on sustainable logistics, where both project participants and network members can share news. The portal will also be a natural place for other research and…

Sustainable Transport through improved actor interfaces

This project analyses the interface and the interplay between logistics companies and their customers (goods owners) in order to provide knowledge that can support logistics service providers, goods-owners and supply chain members in their quest for sustainable competitiveness

Cleaner city freight transport

This project will evaluate how electrical freight transport can contribute to cleaner cities in the future. By providing technical solutions, new business models and an overview of environmental costs, the project makes it easier for decision makers to choose sustainable transport solutions

Nordic incentives for electric cars

This project will map all financial and non-financial incentives available for electric transportation in the Nordic countries and use this information to produce a Nordic calculator for the cost of an electric vehicle

Electrifying the seaways

This project will provide insight to assist in the design of more environmentally friendly ship traffic systems. Additionally, it will provide research based advice for decision-makers in the development of new international regulations for emission-free ship traffic in the future

Mapping electric fuel stations

The goal of the project is to establish a common database over the charging infrastructure in the Nordic countries.  Drivers of electric vehicles will be able to get information on charging stations along their route

Testing the driving range of electrical vehicles

The aim of this project is to improve knowledge on the range of electric vehicles operating  in Nordic countries.  Assessing range and performance of electric vehicles in the challenging Nordic driving conditions will help produce the complete picture of energy use for electric vehicles, and therefore make electric vehicles a more reliable choice for Nordic drivers

Nordic electric avenue

This project aims to achieve an increased share of electric cars on Nordic streets. In order to reduce environmental problems, a Nordic system for electrical vehicles will be set up, where users travel regionally and internationally using public transportation and cars from electric carpool fleets
