Observatory! North Sweden Energiluppen, SE

Data4Action
In strong collaboration with regional and local stakeholders and research institutions, the following tasks were defined for a regional GHG observatory for the two northernmost counties in Sweden (Norrbotten and Västerbotten):
  • Provide energy and GHG data on local and regional level;
  • Can be used for follow-up on local and regional energy and climate policies and measures;
  • Is a support for local stakeholders in defining climate and energy strategies and measures;
  • Is embedded and supported in the region, and becomes an important contribution to a successful regional development.
This resulted in the so-called “Energy Loupe”, which is an online energy observatory for the counties Norrbotten and Västerbotten with their 29 municipalities, providing local and regional authorities as well as energy experts with reliable local and regional energy data. It covers final energy use and direct CO² emissions for all relevant sectors and is available for free on the website of the regional energy agency Energikontor Norr (former Nenet).
