GOVERNMENTAL SUPPORT FOR CHANGING THE SWEDISH ENERGY SYSTEM

DET STATLIGA STOEDET FOER OMSTAELLNING AV ENERGISYSTEMET

The original purpose of the Swedish Energy Research Programme was to replace oil with other energy sources, primarily renewable energy. In recent years the environmental concerns have had a great impact on the political debate. The political goals are clearly directed towards energy conservation and protection of the environment, including the development of a transport system having less environmental impact. The purpose of this investigation is to clarify to which extent this change in political goals have been followed by corresponding change in the allocation of funds within the Energy Research Programme. The investigation shows that the political intentions only partly are fulfilled. Funds to energy conservation have been decreased during the last year. The development of a cleaner transport system still has a low priority despite its high contribution to environmental pollution per used kWh.(A)
