Energy Agency for Southeast Sweden
The agency was established in 1999 as an EU project under the Association of Local and Regional Authorities in Kronoberg. The reason was the increased global and European focus on climate change, reinforcing the need for qualified and impartial players in the energy and transport field.
Since 2007 activities have been operated under the Energy Agency for Southeast Sweden Ltd. The company is jointly owned by an association where 3 regional assemblies and 25 municipalities in Blekinge, Kalmar and Kronoberg are members. The Energy Agency's approximately 25 employees work in all three counties with offices in Oskarshamn, Kalmar, Karlskrona and the headquarters in Växjö.
The Energy Agency is working to initiate, coordinate and implement projects aimed at improving the energy efficiency and increased supply of renewable energy in all sectors of society. The agency works strategically and systematically to link the projects at the local and regional level with the projects of the European and international market.
The work of the agency involves managing projects, conducting investigations, creating and maintaining networks and participating in the dissemination of experiences and best practices.
Experience is spread through the organization of activities such as conferences, conducting presentations at conferences and schools, development of articles and reports, brochures, magazines, newsletters and also via our websites.
Regional clients and target groups are both private and public operators in south eastern Sweden.

Be our project partner
The Energy Agency for Southeast Sweden has an extensive experience of European project cooperation, both as partner and coordinator.
Our areas of expertise includes biogas, energy efficiency in buildings, wind power, solar energy, transport logistics, circular ekonomy, as well as dissemination and networking, among other things.
We are both happy to be invited to a prospective project consortium, doing our share of developing an idea, as well as develop ideas ourselves and inviting others to participate.
