Sweden energy markets outlook 2017 - New wind capacity to offset nuclear retirals
Sweden has set out very ambitious renewables targets which have been supported by various policies and incentives. The Swedish electricity certificate system has now been extended to 2035 and will support an additional 18 TWh of renewable capacity. In 2015, power exports surged to all-time high levels, due to higher hydro output and nuclear capacity closures in Northern Europe. Exports will fall in the medium term due to four nuclear retirements.
