Roadmap for a renewable 2040

New publication shows how to achieve 100% renewables

Swedish Wind Energy Association’s recent report ‘Roadmap for a renewable 2040’ is the theme for VIND 2018. Global warming threats are on the rise. However, so are the opportunities for wind power to offer a sustainable solution to this issue. In Sweden, an additional SEK 200 billion will be invested by  2040 in order to achieve a fully renewable energy system. This has to be done without the support of the energy certificate system which will soon fill up, and it is therefore crucial to secure access to locations with good wind conditions and modern electricity infrastructure, and also to increase permissions efficiency.
The climate for economic investments into wind energy can be further improved by taking a few actions. First, the last parts of the Swedish Energy Agreement should be implemented. Second, local acceptance of wind turbines needs to increase by redirecting real estate taxes towards local authorities. Finally, public agencies can better take climate effects into consideration if their instructions from the government are updated. When these actions are taken, Sweden will have the opportunity to fully realize the potential of wind power.
