Swedish externality costs of power generation

Ecofys provided an estimate of the external costs of the Swedish electricity supply in 2050 under different scenarios. This project was part of the much larger Swedish Electricity Crossroads project. Ecofys reviewed and adapted its External-E tool for the calculation of the external costs of energy.

In doing so, Ecofys tailored the impacts of the energy technologies to the specific Swedish situation, adapted the monetisation of climate, health and ecosystem damages to the Swedish context, and modelled assumptions of technology developments through to 2050. The results provided an overview of total and per MWh costs of the Swedish energy system under 12 different scenarios and per technology in 2050.
