The Swedish Energy Agency is leading society’s transition to a sustainable energy system.
We contribute with facts, knowledge, and analysis of supply and use of energy in the society, as well as work towards security of energy supply.
Research on new and renewable energy technologies, smart grids, as well as vehicles and transport fuels of the future receives funding from us.
We also support business development that allows commercialisation of energy related innovations, and ensure that promising cleantech solutions can be exported.
Official energy statistics, and the management of instruments such as the Electricity Certificate System and the EU Emission Trading System, are our responsibility.
Furthermore, we participate in international collaboration with the aim of attaining Swedish energy and climate objectives, and develop and disseminate knowledge for a more efficient energy use to households, industry, and the public sector.
The Swedish Energy Agency is subordinate to the Ministry of Infrastructure, and regulated by the Government through the instruction and annual appropriations directives. Parliament and the Government decide on the assignments and budget of the Agency.
