Shaping the roadmap ahead
Ten years ago the expansion of Swedish wind power accelerated, driven by a fortified electricity certificates system and the EU renewable energy directive. The Swedish Wind Energy Association was created, and our VIND-conference reached record numbers of participants.
Today – ten years later – wind power production in Sweden has increased tenfold, production costs are cut in half, and the Swedish 2030 target for renewable energy production is being reached a decade ahead of time. Conversely, we are in a crucial time of development and time is running short for saving the climate.
At VIND 2019 we learnt from the past decade to shape the roadmap for the 2020s.
