Our research team

FSSD wide 2

Briefely, we are a research group within the research area of  Strategic Sustainable Development at the TISU department within Blekinge Institute of Technology. Guided by the framework for strategic sustainable development (FSSD), our research is focusing on accelerated transformation of energy and transport systems towards sustainability.

Rapportens resultat visar att dagens fokus på fossilfrihet och klimatåtgärder måste breddas till hela hållbarhetsfrågan  så att även andra hållbarhetsproblem adresseras och så att inte lösningar på vissa hållbarhetsproblem skapar nya. Rapporten tydliggör också att det är nödvändigt, praktiskt möjligt och ekonomiskt fördelaktigt för Sydostregionen att göra en snabbare hållbarhetsomställning av persontransporterna  än vad som har föreslagits i tidigare studier och utredningar.

In Lisiana Nurhadi’s licentiate thesis it was shown how to develop and test a new approach to examining the economic socio-ecological sustainability effects of various road vehicles for private travelling, and business model.

The overall aim of this licentiate thesis presented by Sven Borén in mid-April, was to elaborate methodological support for development of sustainable personal road transport systems that is informed by a strategic sustainable development perspective. Secondary aims where to find a vision for sustainable transport, initial development plan, sustainability effects, barriers and enablers for an increase of electric vehicles.

This study identified sustainability effects and quantified environmental impacts from current road vehicles, and projected how battery and hydrogen fuel cell EVs can contribute towards EU goals for 2050 and a sustainable future. Except for being adopted in the upcoming GreenCharge roadmap for fossil free personal road transport, the authors believe the results can contribute to planning in the upcoming decades for a sustainable increase in numbers of EVs in Europe, and potentially serve as an inspiration for other smaller or larger regions.

This study has clarified that electric buses have low energy use and low external noise levels, and receive positive opinions from passengers, drivers and other stakeholders in real-life use during wintertime in the south of Sweden.

A new report by BTH conducted jointly with researchers from Copenhagen Business School and Innoventum has compared instruments for electric vehicles in eight countries. Recognized predecessor as Norway, the Netherlands and China were included, but also some who like Sweden, have been more cautious (Germany, France, the UK and Denmark). The report concluded that Norway is located far to the front, while Sweden finished in last place. The report also shows that there is a clear correlation between the strength of the instrument operations and the number of electric vehicles on the roads in the studied countries.

Paper highlights:

  • Gasoline car causes the most emissions from its manufacturing and use phases.
  • Local jobs from renewables give positive contribution to social sustainability.
  • Renewable electricity in electric carpool cause least socio-ecological impact.
  • Car Pooling is more cost-effective for those who drive from 2000 to 8500 km.
  • People travel less than 13,500 km/year should not consider owning a car.

The study aims to emphasize on sensitivity analysis for the total cost of ownership (TCO) to reduce uncertainty by identifying which factors of interest that most likely cause the estimated cost values for the electric bus. The result shows that the percentage change of line distance (km/year), operational years, and investment cost would be the most influential and significant factors on TCO.

Some see the possibility to move beyond a narrow focus on efficiency or carbon dioxidereductions towards an integrated sustainability perspective. This paper uses this perspective to build and test a new assessment approach that should enhance decisions on bus transport powertrains and energy carriers for Swedish medium-sized cities. The study suggests that a superiority of electric powertrains is revealed if a traditional economic analysis is integrated with a strategic sustainability perspective.
