Swedish energy used mostly in industry and buildings

January 9th, 2013

Sweden used 1 475 PJ of energy in total in 2010, accounting for a bit over a third of energy use in the Nordic countries. Swedish energy use resembles that of the Nordic average, with about a third each used in industry and buildings, and 22% of energy used in transport.

Sweden’s energy intensive industries cover paper and pulp, as well as steel manufacturing. The energy supply of Sweden saw its carbon intensity drop dramatically in the late 70s and early 80s with the phase in of nuclear power.
