After almost 30 years of developing a Swedish bioenergy policy, bioenergy production has increased, both in absolute numbers as well as its share of total Swedish energy supply. 5 shows the expansion of bioenergy in the energy supply. 5 per cent of the total bioenergy production. In fact, the lion’s share of bioenergy today comes from forestry, by-products from the pulp and paper industry, waste and peat (cf. SJV, 2006). 6 shows how Salix production expanded in the early 1990s but then went down again.
In addition to the above committees, this style includes the ‘remiss’ system, in which various public agencies, societal organizations and interest groups are consulted before a government bill is presented in parliament. Moreover, a rule of public access to official documents facilitates the transfer of information from government bodies to those affected. Hence there is a tradition of public openness to inputs from various experts and interests as a method for reaching a common understanding of policy problems and their solutions.
In summary, to understand what EPI is, it is useful to break it down conceptually. A basic question is what the purpose of an EPI study is; to understand how it is currently implemented in sector policy, how it can be applied through different tools and/or what environmental changes we want it to result in. Regardless of purpose, however, it was argued that defining EPI as a principle is appropriate, in order to distinguish it from its potential consequences in terms of tools or a broader process of change.
