Renewable and flexible energy systems

We are now switching to an energy-efficient and fossil-free energy supply.

The share of renewable energy must increase

Sweden's energy use comes partly from renewable sources such as hydropower and bioenergy. Wind power and solar energy are on the rise, but the proportion needs to be even greater, not least globally.

Energy supply for industry, buildings and transport.

IVL has a large group of experts who work with energy issues, primarily in industry, buildings and transport. We use energy modeling and scenario analysis to describe the effect of various instruments, in large research projects as well as on behalf of individual customers.

District heating, industrial symbiosis and biogas

We have strong expertise in district heating systems, in particular the conversion to flexible systems with heat recovery from unused heat flows. Industrial symbiosis is also one of our areas of strength, as is energy efficiency in buildings. We also have broad knowledge of biogas.

With a focus on sustainable energy supply in industry, construction and the transport sector.
