Two reactors at Sweden's Forsmark facility

Nuclear Power Splits Swedes

Four out of ten Swedes surveyed are against the construction of more nuclear power stations in Sweden, that’s according to research carried out on behalf of the nuclear industry.

One in four however said they supported the building of more nuclear power stations, with a similar number saying they would like to see new reactors brought on line to replace Sweden’s older nuclear facilities.

1,037 people were interviewed for the poll, which also showed over half of the women surveyed were against an increase in nuclear power generation, with men over 60 being the most positive.

Around half of Sweden’s energy requirements are currently generated by nuclear power.
