Powering up Värmland with water

Explore the significance of small-scale hydropower and local energy production in a complex institutional landscape.

Small hydropower plants are vital in Sweden’s energy landscape, particularly in regions such as Värmland. With Sweden needing to meet new EU environmental rules, these small plants face big changes. Discover how Henrik Nisser’s farm in Alstrum uses one of these small plants to power not just his own farm but also to give electricity to houses nearby, showing a real-life example of local energy solutions at work.
