Risk of power shortage this winter: How to reduce your energy consumption

Due to a lack of capacity in the networks that transfers electricity from where it is produced to where it is used, several parts of Sweden are risking being hit by a shortage of electricity this winter1. While there may be a surplus of energy in the north, there is a lack of enough wires to move electricity to the south. Major investments in the Swedish network will be required to overcome the problem. Therefore, it is extra important that everyone is contributing to save the energy during the critical winter months. In connection with this, the technology group Sdiptech gives tips on what everyone can think of to reduce their energy consumption.

Sdiptech is a technology group that creates more sustainable, efficient and safe societies by acquiring and developing businesses that offer solutions to critical needs in the infrastructure sector, such as niche products and services for power supply, electrical automation and temporary electricity.

Sweden's electricity network is severely neglected, and large investments are required to counteract long-term electricity deficits, which in turn can complicate economic growth. In terms of demand, electricity production in southern Sweden is low and there is not enough capacity in the networks to transfer electricity from where it is produced to where it is used. Thus, electricity shortages and surpluses can occur at the same time in different parts of the country. In addition, it is currently not possible to store electricity on any large scales. At the same time, large amounts of the energy required to heat our properties leak out, a problem that increases during the winter months. By reviewing and optimizing energy and power use based on a property, more people can lower their energy consumption and thereby contribute to counteracting the electricity shortage, while reducing both their electricity costs and environmental impact.

In connection with this, Sdiptech lists some simple tips on how you as an individual can reduce your energy consumption this winter:

▪ Make sure that the fridge, freezer and moldings around doors and windows close tightly so that the heat does not sip out.

▪ Inspect the furniture in your home so that nothing blocks elements and clogs the heat.

▪ Most people turn off all lights before leaving home, but do not forget to turn off the rooms that are not used even when you are at home. Another tip is to put timers or sensors on the lights in your home.

▪ Be sure to turn off the TV and computer when not in use. Even appliances in idle mode unnecessarily consume electricity.

▪ Another tip is to connect them to a socket so that you can easily turn off several appliances at the same time via a switch.

▪ Replace your light bulbs at home with low-energy light bulbs or LED lights, a low-energy light bulb draws around 80 percent less electricity than a normal light bulb does.

▪ Use power save mode, which is often found on newer computers and TVs.

▪ If you have home electronics that are older than five years, units should always be switched off when not in use.

▪ Use electricity meters to keep track of the worst culprits.

▪ Use the reheat and open the oven when the food is ready.

▪ Spin the water out of the wash at least 1,400 rpm. Then hang up your laundry instead of using a drying cabinet or tumble dryer.

▪ Did you turn up the heat indoors when it got colder outdoors? Do not forget to pull it down again when it gets warmer.
