Facts about the Lindell family


Nils Lindell

Age: 52.

Profession: Organisation consultant, self-employed.

Interests: Family and friends, tennis, sailing, skiing and personal development.

Favourite food: Shrimp salad or grilled beefsteak along with Italian vegetable mix.


"We live a modern urban life. The children's schools have a large catchment area. Some of the kids' friends live 40 or 50 kilometres away. That makes for a lot of mileage by car. I'm really looking forward to driving an electric car with zero emissions. It'll also be exciting to use Vattenfall's smart Energy Watch system and see how exactly we use our electricity."


Alicja Lindell

Age: 51.

Profession: Deputy head of preschool, currently doing a three-year head teacher course in parallel with her job.

"I can cycle to work in 20 minutes, but with so many activities on our agenda I often have to use the car anyway. We can save a lot of carbon dioxide by planning better and more intelligently. We have already become more aware. Now that other people will be watching us it'll be fun to come up with solutions that might inspire others."
