Alternative fuels

Sweden aims for the implementation of the Directive for Alternative Fuels Infrastructure (2014/94/EU) even though much remains for the full realisation of its goals. Specific for the alternative fuels is that the government and national authorities can only relate to the EU goals and adapt and adjust national incentives for stimulating the whished development of the infrastructure. The alternative fuels infrastructures are either developed and expanded by regional and local authorities or by the alternative fuels market actors.

Specific goals have been set by the EU for the alternative fuels infrastructure along the CNC, such as:

A sufficient number of CNG fuelling stations, at least one per 600 CNG vehicles.

150 Km between CNG fuelling stations in the corridor and 400 km between LNG stations,

A sufficient density of charging point for electric vehicles.

In general, there are more fuelling stations for CNG in the south of Sweden. In the northern part of Sweden there are less than 10 CNG stations. Several regional and local initiative have initiated the implementation in the north, such as the implementation of biogas buses in the cities of Gävle, Skellefteå and Boden, which in turn stimulates other neighbouring cities. New CNG stations where built in Sundsvall, Härnösand and Skellefteå in 2015-16 with support from TEN-T (Action 2013‐SE‐92044‐S).

What regards LNG stations there are only six stations in Sweden, all in the south. In 2018 and 2019 Gasum Sweden will build 16 new LNG station of which three in northern Sweden, at the Bothnian Corridor.
