Energiluppen : new tool showing energy use in Norrbotten and Västerbotten

A new webtool “Energiluppen” that shows energy use in municipalities in Norrbotten and Västerbotten has been produced as a result of one of Nenets projects. The tool can be used to see the energy use historically in all municipalities and it is also possible to construct scenarios for future GHG-emissions, depending on how the energy use is altered. Comparisons between different municipalities or counties can be made and you can see how much of the total energy use that comes from renewable energy sources.
