Knowledge transfer for a Sustainable World

Knowledge transfer




LightSwitch is an independent consultancy dedicated to facilitating and accelerating international knowledge transfer in the fields of renewable energy, energy efficiency and strategic sustainability.

Our objective is to promote wider deployment of proven and workable solutions to serious sustainability challenges.

Our main focus is to catalyze and facilitate interactive knowledge transfer projects between stakeholders in the public sector, business and the research community.

We create and support constructive knowledge sharing and capacity building partnerships between organizations with the objective of accelerating the societal transition towards sustainability.

We have the ambition to spread our philosophy around the importance of active knowledge transfer and capacity building to solve the urgent sustainability challenges that are facing our world.

Through our work we spread imbedded knowledge and experience from good practice examples to new contexts.



ISGAN initiative on Experimental/Regulatory Sandboxes to accelerate Smart Grid deployment

As part of a very international team of experts, LightSwitch is leading the knowledge transfer activities in an exciting new International Smart Grid Action Network (ISGAN) initiative aimed to advance international collaboration in regard to Experimental Sandboxes to accelerate smart grid deployment. The initiative is carried out in partnership with the International Confederation of Energy Regulators (ICER) and includes a number of inter-linked activities, including a three day international meeting in Stockholm 1-3 April, in conjunction with the Stockholm Smart Grid Week and the ISGAN Executive Committee Meeting. The results from this project will be presented at the Clean Energy Ministerial Meeting (CEM#10) in Vancouver in May 2019. For more information please see here.


Alliance for Urban Sustainability

We're very excited to announce that LightSwitch, in partnership with Cornland International, has been chosen to lead the knowledge transfer activities in the international network Alliance for Urban Sustainability, consisting of ambitious municipalities in France and Sweden that are spearheading the sustainability transition. The network will be using LightSwitch's unique model for deep-dive and action-oriented knowledge transfer.


New Climate and Energy Strategy for the Stockholm Region

LightSwitch has the pleasure and privilege to support the County Administrative Board of Stockholm in their work to produce a new Climate and Energy Strategy for the region. To date we have held three visioning & backcasting workshops to engage regional stakeholders in issues relating to transport planning (both goods and people) and the energy transition. The final workshop on sustainable public consumption will take place 10th of May 2019.


International knowledge transfer services in the areas of renewable energy, energy efficiency and strategic sustainability.

LightSwitch enables fact-based, pragmatic and structured processes for organisations with
a genuine wish to tap into the knowledge and experience of others as a lever for innovation, organisational development and efficiency.

Training courses for organizations that believe in the potential of active knowledge transfer.

We would like to see more organizations adopting and practicing the philosophy of active knowledge transfer.

Therefore we design and deliver tailor-made training courses and related material to enable more organizations to run their own capacity building projects.

Advisory and auxiliary consulting services related to strategic sustainability, renewable energy and energy efficiency.

We carry out e.g. feasibility studies, market analyses and evaluations, workshop facilitation and conference moderation.

We are openminded and always happy to consider participation in projects that lead in the direction of sustainability.
