Not only our driving experience will be affected when we leave fossil fuels in the past and enter a more sustainable future. Many other things that have been a natural part of our everyday lives will be forgotten, and other phenomena will take their place. With “Radio Fossil Freedom” Vattenfall seeks to inspire the public towards a fossil free future, by visualizing it today.
"Our goal is to enable a fossil free living within one generation, In order to muster the strength required for the desired transformation, it is important that it feels achievable. Radio Fossil Freedom's purpose is to induce that feeling, in a somewhat lighthearted manner. The radio station is basically a 'rift in the fabric of time' which gives us the ability to hear what a fossil free future could sound like, says Susanna Hurtig, Director of E-mobility Nordics at Vattenfall.
InCharge is Vattenfall’s initiative for electric vehicle charging infrastructure – a prioritized area, seeing as the electrification of the transport sector is crucial for the reduction of carbon emissions. “Radio Fossil Freedom” is therefore broadcasted by shortwave radio from three public charging stations in Stockholm city center, at Narvavägen 5, Valhallavägen 138 and Drottningholmsvägen 5, but will be made available for all Swedish speakers through Spotify shortly.
"Those who drive electric vehicles are ahead in the race towards fossil freedom, and we believe that paving the way should pay off. Which is why Radio Fossil Freedom is being broadcasted from their home turf – the charging stations, basically turning them into portals into the future that EV-drivers are creating," says Hurtig.
