In Stockholm, roughly 90 percent of the population lives within 300 meter proximity from a designated green area to allow for better quality of life, including recreation, water purification, enhanced biodiversity, ecology, and noise reduction. Stockholm’s main ambition is to be a totally fossil fuel-free city by the year 2050.
A Swedish train station is harvesting energy from human heat to warm buildings and lower energy costs.
Central Station in Stockholm is Sweden’s largest rail station and the busiest in Northern Europe with almost 250,000 passengers per day. All those bodies in motion create excessive heat in the building, despite the chilly climate.
