Energy Union & Climate
In 2015 the Energy Union and Climate were introduced as a long-term strategy for the EU focused on boosting energy security, creating a fully integrated internal energy market, improving energy efficiency, decarbonising the economy and supporting research, innovation and competitiveness. Targets for 2020 and 2030 were set to encourage renewables in the EU’s energy mix, but more recently an Energy Roadmap for 2050 has been drafted to achieve a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 80-95%, when compared to 1990 levels, by 2050. In this framework, Sweden has officially committed to reaching carbon neutrality by 2045.
During the session, it will be investigated how the goals set are intended to be achieved in Sweden and what has already been done. How can Sweden become the role model for the other EU Member States in this transitional process? What are the steps to be taken by the Swedish institutions and stakeholders to be the first to meet or even overcome the milestones decided by the European Commission?
Roadmap for Fossil Free Sweden
Fossil Free Sweden was initiated by the Swedish government ahead of the COP21 climate change conference in Paris in 2015 as the United Nations launched an Action Agenda, to show how enterprises, cities, municipalities and organisations contribute to climate efforts. The ambition is to make Sweden one of the first fossil-free welfare countries in the world. Svante Axelsson is the national coordinator of Fossil Free Sweden. He is the link between the actors and the government in the efforts to remove obstacles and create conditions to speed up the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. In the session, we will learn more about the challenges, targets, and progresses in the roadmaps for steel, forest and mining sectors becoming fossil free.
The Role Of Municipalities In Energy Transition
European Parliament underlined in the energy roadmap 2050 about strengthening the role of local communities about energy and environment issues. When it comes to sustainability and clean energy, Sweden is always at the forefront. It has its own roadmap to make municipalities free of fossil fuel for e.g. Stockholm municipality has a target of becoming fossil-fuel free by 2040.
Representatives from Swedish municipalities will showcase their roadmaps to become free of fossil fuel in the near future. They will provide a comprehensive overview of the challenges and action plan of bringing all stakeholders together for this clean energy transition. It will include testimonials from already implemented solutions assisting in this transition.
The Era Of New Technology: Shaping The Future Of Energy
In 2017 the investments of the energy sector in big data and artificial intelligence have boomed and traditional energy companies, together with a myriad of startups, are looking to data analytics and innovative technologies to improve the operations and management of distributed energy resources. Blockchain technology is also at the forefront of this revolution and it is emerging powerfully in the energy industry as an agent of change. The possible applications and implications derived by the disruptive potential of those innovative technologies are explored in this session, with a special focus on their effects in the energy sector.
Sustainable Urban Mobility For The City Of Tomorrow
Current transportation system contributes to around one-third of global emissions, but the rise of sustainable urban mobility plans (SUMP) is giving new hope for a change in the transport sector. The development of e-mobility is receiving the attention of national governments, as well as the automobile industry. In Sweden, e-mobility is applied to innovative urban logistics and intelligent transport systems to tackle the challenges of increased energy use and urbanisation.
In this session, we will explore the topic both from a global and a national perspective, investigating the projects already in place on Swedish ground next to the major trends around the world with the higher potential of emission reduction
