About A Challenge from Sweden

A Challenge from Sweden is an initiative for challenge-driven innovation founded by the Swedish Energy Agency. The initiative connects committed buyers, solution providers and investors to collaborate on accelerated transition towards a zero-carbon growth economy.  


Developed by the Swedish Energy Agency, this initiative focuses on the business goal of 100% renewable energy and fossil-free transport. The purpose of A Challenge from Sweden is to create needs-driven innovation. The programme provides a forum for global stakeholders; from needs owners to innovators, suppliers and investors. Together, we can make a difference by realising new innovations and sustainable energy solutions.

The goal of the initiative

By commercialising innovation within the framework of the Swedish Energy Agency’s role as a public authority, we can increase the pace of our transition to a sustainable energy network and achieve the political climate goals adopted in the Paris Agreement. We create the preconditions for procurement, investment and the implementation of solutions.
