Energy Systems

We are seeing significant changes in energy systems, rapidly increasing the need for new knowledge and competences. The different elements of the energy sector are becoming more interlinked and an understanding of synergetic effects between these elements and potential development pathways is growing in importance.

In this research subject area Energiforsk manage programmes and projects with a focus on the long-term development of the energy system, in Sweden and internationally. Research questions engaged with involve electrification, the role of renewable fuels in the energy and climate transition, and other system spanning questions.

We explore questions related to secure energy provision, support services, and taxes and other policy instruments. Our research give answers to how the electricity market and the energy system is best designed to meet tomorrows needs and what future impact could be inflicted on the system due to climate change.

Through research we want to enhance knowledge and facilitate a dialogue surrounding current societal questions, looking at how we best transition our energy system in a sustainable and efficient way with a low cost for society.
