Sweden: Energy Outlook

Sweden is highly committed to become the first fossil fuel-free country in the world. Thanks to the development and implementation of clean technologies, Sweden has become the first country in Europe to meet the renewable energy targets set by EU for 2020 eight years ahead of schedule.

Sweden, for example, they have carbon free electricity. That’s the solution to the climate problem. If we had carbon free electricity in all countries, you solve the problem! Because we can make liquid fuels for transportation from energy if you have abundant, carbon free electricity.”  Dr. James Hansen

Sweden is one of only six countries in the world to have achieved a clean electricity generating mix.
