Car-pooling schemes encourage car owners to cut congestion by inviting people who are making the same trip to share a vehicle. Typically, such schemes are led by workplaces and include Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) and infrastructure solutions such as online booking schemes, ‘park and pool’ venues and reserved parking for car-poolers. Some car-pooling schemes may incorporate the use of hybrid, clean and electric vehicle fleets. Schemes may be integrated with public transport systems (e.g. park and ride) while infrastructure solutions such as high-occupancy vehicle (HOV) lanes may be implemented.

GrowSmarter Site Stockholm

Sweden’s capital city, Stockholm, has been working on climate change mitigation and adaptation since the 1990s. The city is a real frontrunner with well implemented climate action plans and pioneering policies to ensure it meets its ambitious environmental targets. The carbon dioxide emissions have been cut by 25 % per citizen since 1990.

GrowSmarter aims to stimulate city uptake of smart solutions by using the three Lighthouse cities Stockholm (Sweden), Cologne (Germany) and Barcelona (Spain) as a way to showcase 12 Smart City solutions: from advanced information and communication technology and better connected urban mobility, to incorporating renewable energy sources directly into the city’s supply network. This will provide other cities with valuable insights on how they work in practice and opportunities for replication.

The 12 Smart City solutions are split into three areas of action:
