Sweden’s greenhouse gas emissions are among the lowest in the EU. Since 1990, emissions have been declining in our housing and service sectors as the result of a shift from oil to district heating, heat pumps and biofuels for heating.
The continued push towards the development and implementation of green technologies has enabled Sweden to become the first country in Europe to meet the renewable energy targets set by EU for 2020. Eight years ahead of schedule.
Swedish companies lie at the forefront of the energy efficiency sector. Those that stand out in particular are producers and service companies in heating and cooling, energy storage systems, and smart grid solutions.
