New Swedish cleantech company to promote electric car networks in Sweden

According to its CEO Patrik Nilsson, Sustainable Innovation Sust is "a national centre for energy efficiency in everyday life"
The Swedish company is so far supported by a dozen companies, among them Scania, Vattenfall and Sustainable Technology Partners.

Among the top priority for the company is to develop an infrastructue for electric vehicles in Sweden. Through a pilot project using 50-100 electric vehicles Sust and its partner companies will develop an infrastructure and a paymento model.

This project is interesting considering projects being planned or carried out in Israel, Germany and Denmark.

A mix of efforts to achieve higher transport sustainability is necessary to avoid being restrained to only one or two, potentially vulnerable technologies (such as 1st generation ethanol).
