How does the Nordic energy system look? What changes have they seen? This Category looks at energy consumption, primary energy supply, energy intensity, etc.
Swedish electricity production is 58% renewable thanks to significant hydropower production, and biomass-fired combined heat and power production. Wind power has seen a significant increase in capacity in recent years, and is expected to take a larger share of production in the future.
Adding Sweden’s substantial nuclear generation to the renewable power means 96% of Sweden’s electricity production is CO2-free.
