Funding from Vinnova SEK 500 000
Project duration May 2015 - January 2016
Status Completed
Venture Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation

Purpose and goal

The aim in this project is to develop a methodology for ECO GOVERNANCE which help us to solve complex demand in the sustainable city and thereby increase the export of services and products with a holistic perspective. We have developed a methodolgy but we need to fine tune it in stage 2. We have increased the possibility for export by establishing a strong consortium of delivering companies -Xylem-Purac-Malmbergs-IVL-Envac and Scania.

Results and expected effects

Our idea is that the export of sustainable solutions are restricted because we cant describe the methodology how this has been done. Now when this is described we can in a more trustful way convince the political stakeholder in the other country how this can be done . What is needed more is a study of the decision making process in China and India. Then we can develop a strategy how to market Swedish system solutions at the same time as national aspects can be included.In step 2 we will test this in a pilot in two Chinese cities.

Approach and implementation

In the project we have done interviews of key stakeholders and examined materails to be able to describe how Linköping has implemented biogasbuses . The biogas buses have improved the air quality . The biogas has been produced from sludge and organic waste . In Borlänge we have studied how they have introduced waste incineration with energy recovery. In Borlänge they also transfer energy from the industries so that the city can use fossil free energy for heating of the houses. Based on this a methodology has been developed. A strong delivering consortia for biogas has been established.

The project description has been provided by the project members themselves and the text has not been looked at by our editors.
