City of Helsingborg, Sweden , April 20, 2023 (press release) –

The climate threat is the greatest challenge of our time and Öresundskraft is convinced: AI technology will be a crucial tool for tackling the climate challenge and building a sustainable energy system. Therefore, Öresundskraft joins AI Sweden as its first energy company in Sweden as a partner.

AI Sweden is Sweden's national center for artificial intelligence and is supported by the Swedish state as well as industry and the public sector throughout Sweden. The goal is to accelerate the use of AI to strengthen Sweden's welfare, competitiveness and improve the lives of everyone living in Sweden. This is done in collaboration with AI Sweden's more than a hundred partners. Emphasis is placed on knowledge exchange and the joint development of resources and tools.

"We must learn from new technologies and other industries so that we can do it quite quickly, the climate crisis does not wait. Therefore, we want to increase our knowledge and understanding of AI and learn how artificial intelligence can be used to improve Öresundskraft's energy solutions, provide greater and faster customer benefit and tackle the climate challenge locally and globally," says Lillemor Högström, Head of Digitalisation & Architecture at Öresundskraft.

"It's great to have Öresundskraft as partners and to follow them on their AI journey. It is gratifying that a public organization sees artificial intelligence as an opportunity in the green transition and as a tool to create value for its business and its customers", says Carl Malm, Ecosystem Manager South, AI Sweden.

Öresundskraft sees several areas where AI technology can accelerate the work on the climate challenge and the energy system. Some examples:

Predict and prevent downtime and maintenance needs
Predict production and consumption
Improve energy efficiency in buildings and facilities
Dynamic pricing for electric vehicle charging
"AI will play a crucial role for the energy industry in the future by enabling more efficient use of resources, reduced environmental impact and better customer experiences. By analyzing large amounts of data, AI can help us create personalized solutions that benefit our customers, the city, the local electricity system and not least the planet," says Jenny Gustavsson, Digitalization & IT Manager, Öresundskraft.
