Future Electricity Use – a project report

A report entitled “Future Electricity Use” provides future scenarios involving both higher electricity use and increased power.

Today Sweden’s total electricity use is almost 130 TWh. Estimates in the Electricity Crossroads report of electricity use in a perspective of 2030 – 2050 indicate a total of 128–165 TWh. With stricter rules on greenhouse gas emissions, electricity will play an important role in replacing fossil energy. Society is being digitalised and IT use is increasing rapidly, which requires more electricity. But this increase will be counterbalanced by energy efficiency improvement based on technology development and political initiatives. The maximum power demand will also increase, from around 27,000 MW today to 28,700 MW.
