About us

The Swedish Energy Agency is pressing ahead for the energy transition into a modern and sustainable, fossil free welfare society - applying our credibility, a comprehensive approach and courage.

We contribute with facts, knowledge, and analysis of supply and use of energy in the society.

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 Environment and Energy, 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.
