Sorry, Sweden is not an oil exporter. I confused it with Norway. Someday I hope to visit at least one of them so the difference will be clear to me in a personal way.

Sweden on track to attain 100% green objective by 2040


Sweden is on course to produce all its energy from green sources by
2040, a top regulatory official from the country declared late on Monday.

Renewables such as hydro and wind last year represented 57 percent of
the Nordic nation's 159 terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity generation,
with most of the remaining deriving from nuclear, according to Anne
Vadasz Nilsson, Director General of the Swedish Energy Markets
Inspectorate. Swedish production of wind power has progressively
increased since it becomes more cost-efficient, and it now accounts for
10 percent of the country's total energy output, from almost zero
several years ago, as she stated. Sweden targets to add 18
terawatt-hours (TWh) of yearly clean electricity production by 2030. It
does not intend to subsidise more nuclear energy and it is improbable
that any new atomic reactors will be constructed given low electricity
prices, declared Vadasz Nilsson. That is in spite of an agreement
earlier this year to reduce taxes on nuclear power generators. Four of
Sweden's 10 nuclear reactors are presently being phased out, she
mentioned. Nuclear power has come under amplified inspection around the
world in the wake of Japan's Fukushima disaster in 2011. Sweden has no
immediate plans to construct any new hydropower plants because of
environmental concerns, according to her.
