The Swedish government unveils a roadmap which envisages the construction of new nuclear generating capacity equivalent to at least two large-scale reactors by 2035, with up to ten new large-scale reactors coming online by 2045.

In October last year, Sweden’s incoming centre-right coalition government adopted a positive stance towards nuclear energy, with the Christian Democrats, the Liberals, the Moderates and the Sweden Democrats releasing their written agreement on policies – referred to as the Tidö Agreement. With regards to energy, the agreement said the energy policy goal is “changed from 100% renewable to 100% fossil-free”. In the Tidö Agreement, it is assumed electricity demand of at least 300 TWh in 2045, double the current demand.
