The Energy Agency for Southeast Sweden (ESS) is owned by the registered association Energy Agency for Southeast Sweden, which, in turn, is owned by the municipalities in the region as well as the regional councils in Kalmar, Kronoberg and Blekinge. Other public actors may also become members of this association. It is a non-profit company that must not compete with private actors in the market for energy- and transport related services. The Energy Agency for Southeast Sweden is based in Växjö, Sweden and also has branches in Oskarshamn, Karlskrona and Kalmar, Sweden.
ESS promotes continuously energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy sources in all parts of society including heating, electricity and transport on the local, regional and European level. We support efforts towards an increased understanding of energy- and transport issues in a long-term perspective. Our goal is to promote energy efficiency, renewable energy sources and support regional development. In this work we co-operate with a variety of Swedish and European partners. The Swedish Energy Agency and the Swedish Transport Administration support this work actively.
ESS has a broad experience of energy efficiency campaigns, training of all level of professional staff and of energy audits. ESS is the regional hub for energy efficiency actions in the southeast of Sweden.
