The current research period of Nepp is based on a number of dominant trends and environmental factors that influence and shape tomorrow's energy system and the world around us. These factors create a mosaic of local and national issues that form the basis of the analyses in Nepp. Our research cover all parts of the energy system, from use and distribution to production and market, where researchers take a holistic approach to the energy and climate transition.
The project functions as a research cluster and the activities aim to:
- Increase knowledge of the short-term and long-term development of the energy system at national, regional and local level.
- Contribute to underpinning energy policy decisions nationally and internationally.
- Contribute knowledge that can be used as a basis for decisions and long-term investments in the energy sector.
- Contribute to strengthening research collaboration and knowledge transfer between researchers in Sweden, the Nordic region, and Europe.
The research builds on the knowledge that has accumulated in previous phases of Nepp. The ambition is partly to broaden the research in an interdisciplinary manner and capture new complexes of research questions, and partly to increase the element of international research collaboration. These complexes of questions are the five thematic areas that make up the research in Nepp. Read more about our themes via the menu above.
