FED − Fossil-free Energy Districts

The Fossil-free Energy Districts project, FED, is an innovative effort by the City of Gothenburg to decrease the use of energy and the dependence on fossil fuel in a built environment. A unique local marketplace for electricity, district heating and cooling is being developed together with eight strong partners. 


Johanneberg Science Park, Göteborg Energi, Business Region Göteborg, Ericsson, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden, Akademiska Hus, Chalmersfastigheter and Chalmers University of Technology are all contributing with their expertise and knowledge to make FED attractive for other European cities as well.

During 2017−2019 the FED testbed will be situated on Campus Johanneberg. FED is financed by Urban Innovative Actions, an initiative of the European Commission for cities to test new solutions for urban challenges.
