    On Friday, 25 February, the Government received an updated picture of the situation from the Swedish Energy Agency. At present, the assessment is that there is no acute risk of shortages or supply disruptions in the supply of electricity, gas or fuel in Sweden. Sweden’s energy supply is to a low degree directly dependent on Russian energy supplies, and reports show that energy supplies from Russia are functioning normally, which means that there are currently no indications of a rapidly approaching shortage. At the same time, it is already possible to see that the situation is affecting prices in the European energy market, and thus also Swedish consumers.
