Sweden Without Fossil Fuels or Reactors
According to a report from the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation, Sweden can have enough energy in the year 2020, without reliance on nuclear power or fossil fuels.
The study, presented Friday, indicates that production of power from the sun, wind, and bio-fuels could increase by 250 percent by 2020. The society says the difference between that and Sweden’s current energy use can be filled by existing hydroelectric power.
Moreover, the report says Swedish energy consumption could be reduced by about one-fifth through increased efficiency.
