Expert authority warned that electricity subsidies could go to companies
The electricity subsidy, of over SEK 17 billion, which was supposed to go to consumers, also ended up with a lot of companies and farmers.
This is in cases where individual companies have shared electricity contracts between households and businesses.
The government’s own expert authority, the Accounting Board, warned in December that the electricity subsidy for households could end up with entrepreneurs, reports Ekot.
The accounting board then raised it once more in a referral to the government.
– It is unfortunate that there is uncertainty about this. I don’t have insight into the process at the government office, but I can state that we highlighted this issue, says Stefan Pärlhem, head of office at the Accounting Board to Ekot.

The hope: Robot flies will pollinate plants
Small plastic robots that pollinate our trees and plants? Researchers at the University of Tampere in Finland hope that will become reality, Vetenskapsradion reports.
Right now, a project is underway where small plastic flies with bristles like wings unfold when you shine a laser on them, which allows you to partially control how the robots travel in the wind.
Wild pollinators are in decline in several places, among other things due to shrinking habitats. (TT)

13-year-old killed teacher in Brazil
A teacher in his 70s was killed and three other teachers and two students were injured in a knife attack at a school in São Paulo, Brazil, on Monday.
The deed was carried out by a 13-year-old boy who attends the same school.
The five injured people are being treated in hospital and their condition is said to be stable. The suspected student has been arrested.
This is reported by TT.
The suspect boy, according to another student, entered the class wearing a mask representing a skull and attacked the teacher from behind.
According to another student, the act must have been prompted by a conflict from last week between the suspect, another person and the now dead teacher.
The snowy weather stops city buses
All city bus traffic in Uppsala has been canceled since 8 p.m., reports UNT.
The reason is the abundant snow storm.
– Our transport company announced that the buses have difficulty arriving because there is so much snow drifting together. There were many buses that got stuck, says Ellen Åberg, press spokesperson at UL, to the newspaper.
Right now there is no forecast for when the buses can start rolling.
Bus traffic in rural areas of the county is also affected, with delays and canceled sections.
Missing girl found
Tonight, the police had a large search effort for a 10-year-old girl who disappeared in the Baronbackarna area in Örebro.
The girl left leisure at 5 p.m.
– She apparently lives nearby so it shouldn’t have taken many minutes. We are keen to find her quickly because it is dark and cold, says police spokesperson Lars Hedelin.
At 9:30 p.m., the police announced that the girl had been found in good health.
At least seven dead in landslides
