Energy supply within total defence

Energy supply in total defense and crisis preparedness is about being able to handle Sweden's energy needs even during crisis and war.

Domestic renewable energy replaces fossil import

Imported fossil energy commodities are being replaced by an increasing share of domestic renewable electricity. At the same time, the electrification of society requires a major expansion of electricity production. Replacing or completing the earlier large-scale structure with smaller and local production units will lead to a more robust energy supply.

Preventive work is required

Outsourcing the production will entail new threats and strains. Energy actors and authorities need to perform extensive preventive work to avoid power failures and/or electricity shortages. Today's energy systems include, for example, advanced IT systems for measurement, control, and regulation. These are vulnerable to cyberattacks, with potential impact on the whole of society.

What RISE offers in energy supply 

At RISE, we have broad expertise in cybersecurity and energy preparedness. We conduct research and test how energy systems could be exposed to cyberattacks and what the consequences are. We also provide training and support to both municipalities and companies that wish to increase their energy preparedness.

How to increase society´s robustness

RISE expertise in the energy field can contribute to increased robustness and making use of the sustainable energy system's ability to resist stress. Amongst other things, we are working on preparing more areas for so-called "island operation". This means that a geographical area becomes self-sufficient using local energy facilities. This would reduce dependence on the national system.

Support to create a secure energy supply

RISE can also provide support for how to best create a secure energy supply. This is achieved through an optimal combination of various energy types and energy storage, given the local conditions.

Protection and security are important parameters in total defence and crisis preparedness.

Production conversion- total defense

During times of crisis and war, our society faces new challenges. Among other things, we need to find an alternative supply of products in health care.

Food & drinking water - total defence

A safe and secure supply of food and drinking water is essential for human life and health. It becomes even more vital during peacetime crisis, increased preparedness and times of war.

Cybersecurity within total defence

With an increasingly digitalized society, the risk of cyberattacks increases. Critical societal functions as well as individual organizations and companies can be affected by a cyberattack. It is vital to synchronize digital deve…

Health & medical care - total defence

Health and medical care are important parts of the Swedish total defence and national crisis preparedness.

Transports within total defence

Transport is an important part of total defence and crisis preparedness. It involves transporting people, raw materials, consumables and equipment. But it also covers transporting energy, processing aids and expertise.
