The Swedish government is determined to increase generating electric power by renewable energy sources. On Tuesday the Minister of Enterprise and Energy, Maud Olofsson, announced plans to build 2,000 new wind power stations during this decade. In an article published by daily Dagens Nyheter Olofsson wrote that this will ensure production of an additional 25 terawatt hours electric power from renewable sources.

The amount of wind power electricity would then rise to 50 percent of the power generated by the country’s nuclear plants. A few years ago wind power stations produced less than two percent of Sweden’s electric power. The government’s project has to be passed by paliament, which will discuss it later this week.
