How do we get electricity networks for the future? 4/6

The electrification of everything from Swedish industry to our transport sector is proceeding at a rapid pace and is a prerequisite for combating climate change. While the debate is raging about how we should produce more and more electricity, the electricity networks that will deliver it are silent.

This is a major problem. The challenge of getting sufficient electricity networks in place in time is monumental and the costs that ultimately end up on the electricity network customers will be staggering. If we do not take the expansion of electricity grids seriously, there is a great risk that there will be no electricity at the outlet and that Sweden will miss the set climate goals, regardless of how much wind or nuclear power we build.

The Environment and Public Health Institute (EPHI) has brought together some of the brightest minds in a series of short reports describing the challenges of the future electricity grid.

In the previous reports, we have seen that the need for new electricity grids is great and so are the challenges of getting them in place. In this fourth, of a total of six reports, we get Erik Lundin's perspective on the electricity network of the future, focusing on the considerable investments required and how this will affect the network of the future.for ordinary people. Lundin is a PhD at the Institute for Economic Research and the Energy and Sustainable Development Programme at Stanford University.
