  • Energy Supply


    Sweden does not have fossil fuel resources. Its main resource is hydroelectricity, with an economically exploitable potential of 80 TWh, followed by wind (potential estimated at 25 TWh).

  • Energy Prices


    The average annual price of electricity for industry and residential are, respectively, 50% and 25% lower than the EU average for industry in 2017. The average annual price for industry is the lowest in the EU.

    The energy tax on electricity was introduced in 1973 and stands at SEK 29/kWh (€3.2c/kWh) in southern Sweden (S3 and S4 bidding zones), at SEK 19/kWh (€2.1c/kWh) in northern ...

  • Energy Consumption

    In 2017, total energy consumption per capita was 4.9 toe, which is 56% above the EU average. At 13 400 kWh, the country's electricity consumption per capita is the second highest in the EU (2.4 times higher than the EU average).


    The country's total consumption remained relatively stable between 2001 and 2012, at around ...

  • Issues & Prospects

    According to STEM's long-term energy scenario 2014 (baseline scenario), the country's total final consumption should increase by 4% between 2011 and 2020, mainly driven by an increase in industry, and then decrease by 6% from 2020 to 2030, pulled by transport.
