In the latest episode of our Sweden in Focus podcast, host Paul O’Mahony is joined byThe Local’s James Savage, Becky Waterton and Richard Orange. We also have an interview with the Green Party co-leader Märta Stenevi.
In this edition we discuss:
- Christian Democrat leader Ebba Busch’s controversial comments calling for police to open fire on rioters.
- Is a Swedish Nato application just weeks away?
- What do Swedes find annoying about their own language?
For our main topic this week we look at how Sweden is affected by the ongoing global energy crisis.
We examine: what energy sources Sweden currently uses and how the mix is likely to change in the longer term; what important new technologies are in the pipeline, including major projects in northern Sweden; how reliant Sweden is on Russian oil and gas imports; and what we as consumers can do to reduce our energy bills.
