Recent years and months have seen increasing attention being paid to the issue of energy security. There are a number of concerns and fears such as (though not limited to):
- The depletion of oil and other fossil fuels
- Dependency on energy imports
- Geopolitics – global terrorism, unstable dictatorships, instability of regional energy suppliers
- Energy requirements in under-developed countries vs. rising demands from advancing developing countries India and China
- Question of economic efficiency vs. global population growth
- Climate change and environmental issues and risks
- Alternative energy and renewable sources
Global risks and issues escalating conflict, mapped with energy insecurity, creates potential scenario for repeating historic errors.
Within the ISSS, the board members have extensive experience in alternative, renewable, sustainable fuel sources. Subsequently, the ISSS has studied and created local fuel security models for local communities in Sweden, with combination consideration of environment, including but not limited to; agricultural over-flow (‘crops for fuel’), dual fuel vehicle uptake, local authority services, critical infrastructure, bio-mass leakage, bio-mass ‘grab’ (bio-fuel competition for substrate). Peak-oil, economic trends & forecasts, consumption trends & forecasts and crisis management demand & forecasts, bordering communities and disaster scenario (military priority).
The ISSS continue to work with Local Fuel Security programs within municipalities and communities throughout the ISSS 2014 – 2020 Program.
