Sweco to Perform System Analysis of Stockholm’s Future Energy Supply

Sweco has announced that it has been chosen to perform a system analysis of the entire Stockholm region's future energy supply. The goal is to develop proposals that are favorable from both an energy and climate perspective.

Sweco will formulate a number of clearly defined courses of action and strategies that will enable the Stockholm region to minimize its energy usage and climate impact within three time horizons by 2020, 2030 and 2050.

Aspects to be studied include the supply, conversion and use of energy. The study is focused on Stockholm County, Sweden, but the possibility for action outside county borders can also be taken into account.

Sweco's system analysis is being carried out on behalf of the Stockholm Office of Regional Planning and Urban Transportation (RTK) as part of a larger energy study from a climate perspective in which the RTK is involved. Sweco's work will be presented in June 2009.
