- Energy prices climbed again in parts of Sweden in recent days, owing in part to uncertainty over a major Russian gas pipeline to Europe, as well as low and varying supplies of other energy sources like hydro, wind and nuclear.
- Electricity prices in the south of Sweden peaked at 4.9 kronor per kilowatt hour on Monday, and that’s not counting taxes, fees and charges.
- Emma Borgström, the sales manager at energy supplier Eon, says the war in Ukraine is the biggest factor pushing energy prices up.
