Dear MAX IV Users,

Europe’s energy system faces an unprecedented crisis which leaves few unaffected, and MAX IV is currently preparing for potential power-cuts happening in our region.

What does this mean for user operation?

MAX IV will continue user operation as normal, until we receive an official warning that there is a general risk of electricity shortage. If such a warning is issued, we must, as part of Lund University and a Swedish Governmental organisation, do our utmost to lower our energy consumption and lessen the strain on the power grid.

Hence it has been decided that if a warning is issued, MAX IV will immediately initiate a controlled shutdown and all user activities are suspended until further notice.
