Sweden as climate and energy security supporter
How can Sweden contribute to other countries' efforts to reduce carbon emissions as agreed in Paris in 2015? How does Swedish energy policy affect energy security in the Baltic countries? To what extent is Swedish energy policy an international concern?Utökad beskrivning av samhällsfrågan
The clean Swedish electricity production implicates extensive climate gas reduction in other countries. Sweden is able to export large amounts of available electricity when neighbouring countries have large electricity demand or shortfall. Moreover, the Swedish electricity intensive industries export refined electricity in form of steel, paper and other products and avoid thereby emissions elsewhere. Since this spring Sweden is interlinked with the Baltic electricity market through the cable Nordbalt. For the Baltic countries, the cable does not only mean access to clean electricity, but also reduced dependency on Russian gas import. How can Sweden secure these possibilities in the future?
