Since 2002, the Swedish Energy Agency has administered economic support to the regional/local energy offices. The Swedish Energy Agency is a part funder of the energy offices and receives reports on the energy offices' project activities as well as on their role as a local energy actor and coordinator for the local energy and climate. The energy offices initiate and participate in comprehensive project activities revolving around energy efficiency and renewable sources. Apart from the Swedish Energy Agency, other funders include the EU, the county administrative boards, and other organisations. There are 14 regional energy offices in Sweden.
