Sparsely inhabited Nordic regions, especially in rural areas, offer a great potential for renewable energy production. Waste-to-energy (W2E) technologies can play a very important role in the diversification of the energy production portfolio in the framework of a growing energy demand. In this paper, we examine the role the development of a smart energy network can play to support the employment of W2E technologies for sparsely populated rural areas. It is expected that W2E technologies combined with smart energy grids would make sustainable energy solutions viable and economically feasible, whilst supporting a transition to a sustainable energy strategy.
