Modes of governing towards fossil fuel free visions and goals in Swedish municipalities

In June, f3 reported of the available extended summary from the project From visions to smart ICT - Local transitions to renewable transportation that has been carried out within the f3 and Swedish Energy Agency collaborative reserach program Renewable transportation fuels and systems (Förnybara drivmedel och system).

Now, a second delivery from the project is available, exploring how sixteen Swedish municipali­ties work toward fossil fuel free visions and goals with a particular emphasis on the urban transport and energy systems. Findings are derived from a broad review of municipal policy, strategy and program documents as well as from structured interviews with civil servants working within these issues.

The report presents a summary of the visions and goals adopted by municipalities in Sweden as well as the translation of these visions and goals into key targets and strategies. It also provides a summary of general patterns derived from document analysis and interviews of how municipal authorities work with and use various governing modes to facilitate the transformation towards less dependence on fossil fuels, using transport and energy as a focus area.
