Accelerate the electrification of forestry transport

The aim of the Accelerate the Electrification of Forestry Transport project is to contribute to increased electrification of forestry transport.



David Fridner

"Forestry transport accounts for a significant part of our emissions and at the same time, it is a challenging area to electrify. That makes the project both important and interesting."

David Fridner, project manager, CLOSER

The goals can be broken down into:

  • Identify barriers and opportunities to achieve an efficient electrification of forestry transport.
  •  Produce a system demonstration that contains several concepts/subsystems/perspectives and specify locations to realize the system demonstration.
  • Seek cooperation and build networks with relevant actors to implement a larger system demonstrator.
