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.
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]
