On behalf of the Armed Forces and the Swedish Energy Agency, the Swedish Defense Research Agency (FOI) has released a report on Coexistence Opportunities between Armed Forces Operations and Expanded Wind Energy.
The mission is based on freedom of information based on a mission in the Armed Forces Organizing Discourse from 2020 “to analyze the experiences of similar and neighboring countries in the practical coexistence of armed forces and greatly expanded wind energy in the same geographical area. The Armed Forces will return with suggestions on how to improve the Swedish system in this connection”. However, the report takes a broader starting point and also analyzes other areas that the Armed Forces and the Swedish Energy Agency have deemed relevant to their investigation.
– Both the Armed Forces and the Swedish Energy Agency identified the need for greater clarity, advanced operations and new solutions to be able to contribute to the energy transition in the best way, at the same time the country’s need for a safe source of energy and the ability of the Armed Forces to solve the tasks of the apparatus. This report contains several good suggestions that we will now analyze further, says Anton Arnson, Head of Administration Personnel at Headquarters who was in charge of the matter to FOI.
During the period 2020-2022 FOI carried out extensive work analyzing most regions, but also comparing conditions in Finland, Denmark, the United Kingdom and Germany. The FOI report outlines various proposals for measures or solutions, which the armed forces will now evaluate before power returns to government offices with proposals on how to improve the Swedish system.
In this context, the Freedom of Information Report constitutes a knowledge base and the Armed Forces will also draw on other relevant data.
