The largest testbed in Sweden for electric mobility is establishing in Gothenburg!

Throughout the year the electrification of the transport sector has accelerated at a fast pace. 

One example is the Swedich Electric Transport Laboratory, SEEL, a giant facility of 13,000 square meters, now being built in Gothenburg. The SEEL facility will meet the needs of developers of heavy and light weight vehicles, trucks and buses, construction machinery, aircraft, and ships, to test all types of battery systems. All with the ambition to create a more sustainable transport system. 

The establishment strengthens the competitiveness of the Swedish automotive industry and has all the prerequisites to become a world leader in sustainable mobility.

Gothenburg’s growth and labour market – stronger and larger!

The business community in the Gothenburg region is characterized by global and knowledge-intensive manufacturing companies, such as Volvo, SKF, and AstraZeneca to mention a few. The wage sum in our region is growing faster in comparison with the country at large. Wage sum growth is even stronger in the construction and service sectors. 

Employment in our region is also increasing at a higher rate than the national average. And more and more companies are being started – last year 8,200 new companies were registered in our region, an increase of 9.1% compared with the year before. 

We are not only growing stronger, we are also growing in size. Our labour market region has grown together with Trollhättan and Uddevalla according to Statistics Sweden latest figures. As a result, 1.4 million inhabitants now live in the commuting region, which strengthens the conditions for growth throughout the region.
