Perhaps the world’s greatest challenge is to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, mainly fossil carbon dioxide. This requires energy transition, avoiding fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas, minimizing energy consumption, and to make citizens more aware of consequences of not acting on climate change.

Both Umeå and Örnsköldsvik, offers free energy and climate advice to all citizens. Additionally, Umeå’s ‘Project Green Umeå’ prepares environmentally conscious Citizens.

The key players in the region within energyproduction is Skellefteå Kraft, Umeå energy, and Örnsköldsviks energy. The energy from these units comes from biomass, water power, wind power and househould waste. Umeå Energi's electricity and district heating is 100% from renewable resources. District heating is also produced from the waste heat generated by the pulp mill SCA Packaging Obbola.
