A new take on offshore energy

The interest in solutions to the world's energy and climate challenges are enormous. Within the EU, 300 million allowances for carbon dioxide emissions will be sold in the near future to create a financial foundation for a great and innovative investment in renewable energy.

A sharing economy in the garden

Many products are only used occasionally. Husqvarna Battery Box is a new sharing service where homeowners can rent electric gardening tools when they need them, using an app. The tools are picked up from an unmanned, connected tool shed placed in the neighbourhood.

Beer with smaller climate impact

Our drinking habits and the beer market have changed a lot in recent years. Ten years ago, there were about 20 breweries operating in Sweden. Today, the number is closer to 190. In the 1970s, Systembolaget (the government owned chain of liquor stores with monopoly on alcohol sales in Sweden) offered 50 different kinds of beer. Now, thousands of beers are available. In the 1970s, few except the environmental authorities made any connection between beer production and the environment, or linked business opportunities to environmental advantage.

Clean, green laundry with ultra pure water

SWATAB's filter solution makes the water ultra pure before it is pumped into the laundry machine. Thanks to the water's properties, the laundry becomes clean without detergent and at lower temperatures. A ten percent market share would save 21 million tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions annually.

GMO’s – a controversial tool

A growing world population requires ever-increasing food production. One of the possible methods is to genetically modify plants and animals. GMOs can contribute to feeding people, but can also be an environmental benefit by reducing the environmental impact of pesticide use in agriculture, contributing to less soil erosion, and reduce nutrient discharges from fish farms.

Electrification will reinvent the car

Electric vehicles are becoming a common sight, a paradigm shift in the making. And it is not just about switching one engine for another; the entire design of the car has been dictated by the mechanics of the combustion engine. The vehicles of the future will be lighter and more autonomous, and may turn mobility into a service instead of a product.
