Swedish emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases Swedish emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases
The graph shows Swedish emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases from 1990 to 1995 and projections to 2020 according to second national communications to UNFCCC. Greenhouse gases have several anthropogenic sources including industrial processes, fossil fuel combustion, and changes in land use, such as deforestation.

Electricity consumption by category in the Nordic countries in 1996 Electricity consumption by category in the Nordic countries in 1996
The graphic shows electricity consumption by category in the Nordic countries in 1996. Developed countries, and Nordic nations in particular, have the highes energy consumption per capita in the world. Over the last decade developed countries have attempted to reduce the over-all energy demand.This includes attempts to increase energy efficiency in households and industrial processes.

Electricity generation by sources in the Nordic countries in 1996 Electricity generation by sources in the Nordic countries in 1996
The graph shows the electricity generation by sources in the Nordic countries in 1996. Nordic countries have a highly developed energy marked, particularly in renewables, partly due to a high number of scientist working in reasearch per head of population and large budgets for development and research.

Icelandic emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases Icelandic emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases
The graph shows Icelandic emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases from 1985 to 1995 with projections to 2010 according to second national communications to UNFCCC. Greenhouse gases are largely produced by human activities, including industrial processes, fossil fuel combustion, and changes in land use, such as deforestation.

Exchanges of electricity in the Nordic countries in 1996 Exchanges of electricity in the Nordic countries in 1996
The graphic shows exchanges of electricity in the Nordic countries in 1996. The Nordic countries have a long tradition of cross-border cooperation in providing an efficient and reliable power supply. The main reason for these exchanges has been that each of these countries has a different mix of power generation facilities. In the later years, from around 1997, the coopreation has changed from being an oligopoly structure with dominant state-owne...

Projections to 2020 of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions Projections to 2020 of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions
The graphic shows emissions of anthropogenic greenhouse gases from 1990 to 1995, with projections to 2020. The main greenhouse gases are CO2, CH4, N2O, HFCs, PFCs and SF6. GLobal warming is largely believed to be the result of emissions of greenhouse gases from human activities including industrial processes, fossil fuel combustion, and changes in land use, such as deforestation.
