Role of Municipal Policy in Renewable Energy Use in Transportation in Sweden

Ari Lampinen

In 2009 the European Union set a binding requirement for all Member States to reach a minimum of 10 % share for renewable energy sources in transport energy consumption by 2020. Sweden is the only country, which already met this target and municipal policies have had large role in this achievement. Swedish municipalities have created markets for several key technologies emphasizing the most sustainable ones. Local markets have grown into national markets and in several cases they have diffused to other countries forming international markets.
