We are already there. The majority of Sweden’s energy now comes from renewable sources. 51 % to be more exact, which means that Sweden has surpassed both the EU’s target of 49% by 2020 and the Swedish parliament adopted target of 50 percent in 2020.This success can be traced back to the establishment of the official Official Oil Commission which was charged with reducing Sweden’s dependence on oil.
Listen here to Mr Gustav Melin, CEO of the Swedish Bioenergy Association, tell more about this great achievment. Mr Melin is interviewed by Mr Kaj Embrén, who has been involved with issues regarding Sustainable Development for more than 30 years.
