Nuclear Less Popular than Renewables

Most Swedes want money spent on renewable energy and energy saving, rather than on nuclear power. A survey by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation asked people what energy sources they thought it was most important to invest in. Almost two thirds chose wind, sun and bio-energy. Only 15% thought the priority should be to replace old nuclear power stations with new, and this amount was beaten by the 18% who prioritised energy efficiency.

In a press release the head of the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation says ’we don’t need nuclear power - it’s expensive and it takes too long to build.

This will be seen as a challenge to the Swedish government, which has already seen a majority in favour of rebuilding Sweden’s nuclear generators.
