Abstract [en]

In Malardalen, Sweden a work is on-going to drive the region towards becoming fossil fuel free. To get rid of coal a decision has been made to build a waste combustion plant. The plant will have a fuel capacity of 200 MW thermal. There are also a number of biogas plants. One is recycling all the organic waste in the region, and combining with crop residues from the farmers. With planned expansions we will produce some 7 million Nm3/y, corresponding to some 9-10 MW HHV. This would make a total of some 500 GWh/y. Today the total consumption of fuels for vehicles is 2 TWh. With new technologies for cars and other vehicles we could take the consumption down to at least some 1 TWh/y. The methane then would cover 50% of the need. To this we add some 0.25 TWh extra electricity for cars used primarily in cities. Possibilities to reduce energy consumption and build renewable power like wind and solar power for both Sweden and EU27 is also discussed, where a special emphasis is made on possibilities to reduce energy consumption in process industries like metal, pulp and paper and cement. This includes increasing production efficiency by using on-line applications of simulation models. This also includes power plants. The conclusion is that it is possible to reach a balance in Malardalen region including Stockholm, and with a total of 3 million people, but also all Sweden.
