Ruotsi: 100% uusiutuvaa energiaa 2040 mennessä

Sweden is on course to produce all its energy from green sources by 2040, a top regulatory official from the country declared 24.10.2016.

Renewables such as hydro and wind last year represented 57 percent of the Nordic nation's 159 terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity generation, with most of the remaining deriving from nuclear, according to Anne Vadasz Nilsson, Director General of the Swedish Energy Markets Inspectorate. Swedish production of wind power has progressively increased since it becomes more cost-efficient, and it now accounts for 10 percent of the country's total energy output, from almost zero several years ago, as she stated. Sweden targets to add 18 terawatt-hours (TWh) of yearly clean electricity production by 2030.
 It does not intend to subsidise more nuclear energy and it is improbable that any new atomic reactors will be constructed given low electricity prices, declared Vadasz Nilsson. That is in spite of an agreement earlier this year to reduce taxes on nuclear power generators. Four of Sweden's 10 nuclear reactors are presently being phased out, she mentioned. Nuclear power has come under amplified inspection around the world in the wake of Japan's Fukushima disaster in 2011. Sweden has no immediate plans to construct any new hydropower plants because of environmental concerns, according to her.  [emp]
