Joint project to promote solar power in enteprises in Örebro

To promote investments in solar power among small and medium-sized enterprises, a joint project was formed with Örebro county and other nearby regions in East Middle Sweden

Solar power has many advantages; it is a renewable source of energy, it contributes to decreasing carbon emissions, and it is also a profitable investment. In the business world, more and more enterprises are discovering the potential of using sustainability as a business opportunity where solar power is seen less as a cost and more as a means to increased competitiveness, and a smaller electricity bill.

To promote investments in solar power among small and medium-sized enterprises, a joint project was formed with Örebro county and other nearby regions in East Middle Sweden. The purpose is to increase the knowledge about solar power for the target group as well as other groups which are in contact with the target group.

The project has resulted in investigations, compiled information, e-learning videos and local activities such as seminars and study visits. It has also accomplished plenty of informative material, such as descriptions of role models, trade-specific information sheets, newsletters and an extensive project website. The project has received a lot of media attention; its activities have been brought up in radio, in the newspaper, in websites and in both local and national TV news.

More action is still needed to reach the regional goal for solar electricity production, but it is easy to see that the interest in solar power is growing – a revolution that cannot be stopped.
