A new report “Time to choose the energy system of the future” from the most influence Environment NGO – The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation (SSNC) shows that it is possible to meet Sweden’s electricity needs in 2030 with 100 percent renewables, and it becomes even possible to export electricity.
Not least the past year with the accident in Fukoshima and various incidents in the Swedish nuclear power plants is becoming increasingly clear that nuclear power is no longer a viable option. Sweden’s nuclear power plants will soon be exhausted. In addition to the risk of accidents and the problems of managing the radioactive waste is new nuclear power is very expensive to build.
One of the most enduring myths is that renewable energy is expensive, although you can see that it is already competitive said Svante Axelsson the Secretary General of SSNC in a comment to the new report.
