Energy Policies of IEA Countries: Sweden 2004

International Energy Agency

Swedish energy policy combines strong government involvement with the judicious use of market forces. This dual approach has generally worked well, giving Sweden a reliable, low-cost and environmentally sound energy supply.

 Sweden must now resolve the future of its nuclear power plants, which provide nearly 50% of the country’s electricity.  The government must work with stakeholders to find a credible solution.
