“As an energy company we have a unique opportunity to create the conditions for the conversion to a 100% fossil-free society. Investing in more wind power is a concrete step in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Our mission is to drive regional development that leads to better conditions for both people and the environment. In Hocksjön, we create regional jobs as well as additional renewable energy, says Erik Brandsma, CEO of Jämtkraft.
