Full story text On 3 May 2016, Minister Ibrahim Baylan launched Belysningsutmaningen, Sweden’s commitment to the Global Lighting Challenge. Together with public and private actors, the Swedish government now races to reduce by half the electricity demand for lighting by 2020 and challenges other countries to follow suit.

The launch event took place in the Prime Minister’s offices in Stockholm and was webcast to actors all over the country. At the launch, Minister Baylan handed over a formal government assignment to Erik Brandsma, Director General at the Swedish Energy Agency, to co-ordinate concrete actions to realize the potential to reduce by half the electricity used for lighting in Sweden by 2020—electricity that could be used for other purposes, such as electrifying the vehicle fleet.
