New publication presents overview of Sweden's energy

The publication Energy in Sweden 2022 by the Swedish Energy Agency paints an overall picture of the energy situation in Sweden; a retrospective through historical statistical data.

The statistics in this publication is based on the energy balance of Sweden and covers data up to the year 2020, consisting of the supply, transformation, distribution, and consumption of energy. Some statistics, where there is available data (such as pricing) also includes the year 2021.

Impacts of the pandemic in 2020

2020 was an extraordinary year, strongly affected by the covid-19 pandemic. Restrictions and recommendations in Sweden and other countries led to lower energy demand, especially within the transport and industrial sectors. The statistics for 2020 deviate from the norm in the extent that it is difficult to use for comparison, both historically and for forecasting future development. However, it shows the impact of the pandemic on the energy markets in Sweden. For example, electricity prices in Sweden were at a record low in 2020, only to rise to very high levels in 2021.

Upcoming publication includes 2021

The report Energy in Sweden 2022 includes an overview of current events and major changes in the outside world affecting energy supply and markets. However, as most of the energy statistics in the publication includes 2020, any impacts from events in 2021 (such as Russia's invasion of Ukraine and higher energy prices) are not yet visible in the energy statistics. During spring of 2023, statistics relating to the year 2021 will be included in the statistical collection “Energy in Sweden Facts and Figures”.
