Sweden aims to run entirely on renewable energy by 2040

09 Nov 2016

Sweden has announced it is on target to run entirely on renewable energy within the next 25 years.

 

Last year, the country generated 57 per cent of its power needs from renewable resources including hydro power and wind. 

"We are not densely populated, we have a lot of good places to put land-based large-scale wind and there is large potential for that in Sweden," said Anne Vadasz Nilsson, Director General of the Swedish Energy Markets Inspectorate.

The country is currently taking action to phase out 10 nuclear reactors as it looks to strengthen its wind power and hydro power industries.
