Swedish Energy Agency
The Swedish Energy Agency is the national authority for energy policy issues. Our mission is to promote the development of Sweden's energy system so that it will become ecologically and economically sustainable. This means that energy must be available at competitive prices and that energy generation must make the least possible impact on people and the environment. In simple words, a smarter use of energy.
Research funding
The Swedish Energy Agency channels practically all state funds into energy research, amounting to approximately 1,3 billion Swedish kronor annually. More than half of this goes to universities and technical colleges. The Chalmers University in Gothenburg, Lund University and The Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm receive most of the funds. Trade organisations and companies also receive support for research, development or the demonstration of new technology. The Energy Research Programme covers everything from new fuels, more efficient engines, better electricity transmission methods, improved wood firing and the impact of wind power on the environment to energy consumption in housing to the performance of the energy system in general.
Business development
In order for new and efficient energy technology to be used in society, it must be competitive, i.e. able to be offered at the right price and in the right "packaging". The Swedish Energy Agency supports the ripening of ideas that can be commercialised, in order to drive on the work with developing the Swedish energy system. We utilise the creativity of researchers, innovators and companies in order to then support and steer the process that leads to ideas becoming reality. We are working to create conditions for a natural ecosystem surrounding companies in growth. The support offered by the Swedish Energy Agency will help develop the areas where the companies will be able to grow. We inform investors about newly-started energy technology companies and about the potential to invest in them.

HEL
HEL manufacture instruments for thermal hazard and calorimetry testing, including an adiabatic calorimeter (often generically called "ARC") for thermal runaway problems in batteries and battery packs. This instrument is widely used to determine limits on safe temperature as well as safe charging/discharging rates. The product – Battery Testing Calorimeter (BTC) – can be used for packs larger than 50cm (around 20 inches) as standard now while at the same time enabling small scale tests of battery components during research and development phases. This data under so-called "abuse" conditions is now almost mandatory.
BTC can be linked with live video and thermal imaging technology, to provide unparalleled data on battery performance and hazards.
An isothermal version (iso-BTC) has now also been released which directly provides data for thermal management systems. For example under different charging/discharging rates, it will determine how much cooling is necessary to prevent runaway. The iso-BTC is suitable for single batteries and packs, regardless of size and shape.
HEL is a multinational company with headquarters in Europe (London) plus major technical sales and support offices in USA, India and China. For further information: www.hazards.co
