Energy is the focus of many national and international studies. One of the major questions is to select the energy options to match supply and demand. Because there are no immediate better alternatives a great amount of effort has to be spent on comparing the pros and cons of different supply options. The formulation of a national energy policy can be a process for making that comparison. Different countries have arrived at different solutions and it is interesting in hindsight to understand how these solutions were obtained.

This paper considers Sweden as a case for how the formulation of a national energy strategy can develop. It is of interest to scientists and policy makers working with energy policies, risks and public decision making.
