Presentation Transcript
Swedish imports of crude oil and petroleum products, 1972–2001 by country of origin (million tonnes, net)
Not just another energy study
  • Energy is a resource for sustainable development – not a problem
  • Focus on the reduction of the negative effects of energy use – not on the use of energy
  • International developments are important
  • Energy does not shape society – energy systems are shaped by society
  • Transport, industry and buildings – integrated parts in the energy system
A scenario approach
  • Scenarios are tools for building different conceivable future energy systems – not forecasts of the future.
  • Scenarios should provide provoking, credible and relevant visions, but not necessarily the most likely or desirable ones.
  • Scenarios should take into consideration the deep currents driving the development of energy systems – not merely individual events.
  • System foresight panel
  • User foresight panel
  • Structure foresight panel
  • Long-term foresight panel
  • Expert teams on different energy sources
  • A summary report
  • Panel reports
  • Factual reports
  • A process
Energy demand
  • Major energy savings in buildings – but more buildings to heat or cool
  • More efficient office and household appliances – but more appliances in need of electricity
  • Spread of integrated transport solutions and better logistics – but an increased demand of transport
  • Improved efficiency in industrial processes – but an annual increase in production
Two scenarios
  • Climate in focus
  • Climate - one factor among others
Natural gas, clean coal and new nuclear - a bridge to a solar and hydrogen society


Natural gas

Clean coal

New nuclear

Solar energy


Oil & coal



Climate in focus– characteristics
  • Internationally harmonized measures to reduce emissions
  • More efficient economic measures
  • R&D and new infrastructures
  • Emphasis on energy efficiency
  • Higher energy prices

Energy supply in Sweden 2050for the scenario Climate in focus?
  • Hydro as today
  • Solar-based electricity other than hydro (e.g. bio, wind, solar cells) and hydrogen fuel cells have a considerable and growing market share
  • Existing nuclear reactors have been partly replaced after 60 years of operation. A new generation of nuclear technology offers improved safety and a bridge to a solar and hydrogen society.
  • A majority of vehicles have fuel cells with hydrogen produced from natural gas with carbon sequestration and from renewable energy.
  • Heating with bio, heat pumps and electricity (low energy buildings)
Climate a factor among others– characteristics
  • Limited harmonisation
  • Focus on the local environment rather than on the global
  • Emphasis on local production of heat and electricity
  • Voluntary market-oriented actions from industry

Energy supply in Sweden 2050 for Climate - one factor among others?
  • Hydro as today
  • Solar-based electricity other than hydro (e.g. bio, wind, solar cells) has a limited but growing market share
  • Existing nuclear reactors phased out after 40 years of operation and replaced by electricity from natural gas.
  • A majority of vehicles use fossil fuels, liquid and natural gas fuels from natural gas where available. Only zero emission cars are allowed in central parts of urban areas.
  • Heating using bio, natural gas, heat pumps and electricity (low energy buildings).
priority questions in the two scenarios
Priority questions inthe two scenarios
  • The level and composition of energy demand?
  • Replacement of the existing nuclear reactors?
  • Replacement/reduction of oil-derived fuels for transport?

Institutional, industrial and technical structures in 2020

Climate – one factor among others– other issues surface

Climate in focus– requires joint European actions

European co-ordination of the energy field

Diverging European development in the energy field

Level European playing field – yields an oligopoly situation – few large actors with similar business

Different playing fields – different business opportunities – multitude of actors of different size

Climate - one factor

among others

Half nuclear phased out

Large scale introduction ofnatural gas

Weak incentives for energy efficiency

Diverging European energy market

Climate in focus

No change in nuclear

Limited use of natural gas

Strong incentives for energy efficiency

Co-ordinated European energy market
