Sweden wants to become the first nation in the world totally fossil-free. This was announced by Prime Minister Stefan Löfven to the United Nations.
They are ambitious and admirable: Sweden has announced plans to accelerate its path to the renewable and against climate change. And so far for 2016 they have allocated 546 millions of dollars just to encourage non-fossil sources in the country.
Right now fossil fuels generate 20 percent of electricity in the country, the rest comes from a mix of renewable energy sources, in particular from hydro, and nuclear. But nuclear power plants close because obsolete and outdated, and the Swedes have decided not to build more new ones.
We hope that other nations will follow the same path.
