Sweden consumes approximately 0.4 percent of the world’s primary energy. As a member of the European Union, Sweden contributes to the development of minimum energy performance standards (MEPS) and efficiency labeling programs through the European Commission. The Swedish Energy Agency represents Sweden in work with different EU directives on energy, such as the Ecodesign directive.

Information regarding Sweden's current energy efficiency programs can be found on the CLASP Standards and Labeling (S&L) Database.
