Swedish wind power is expected to be as large an electricity producer as nuclear power in Sweden, as more wind turbines are being built and nuclear power is phased out.
Last year, wind power accounted for 17% of Sweden's electricity production, corresponding to about 28TWh. According to Swedish Wind Energy's new forecast this will grow to 35TWh. However, more electricity supply will push prices down, which risks impacting the industry. “It will be difficult to get profitability in the Swedish energy market in the future,” said Daniel Kulin, an analyst at Svensk Vindenergi.
