Sweden



Sweden is located in Northern Europe, covering 438,574 km2 (169,334 mile2) of land surface and having a population of 9.9 Million (2017).  Sweden’s primary energy production is 397 terawatt-hours (TWh), and energy supply per capita is 57 MWh (UN data, 2017). Nuclear is both the largest source of primary energy production and the largest source of primary energy consumption (The Shift Project, 2014). 54 species are listed as threatened (UN data, 2017).

 

As of 2016, Sweden has 3,200 kW installed capacity of wave energy and 7.5 kW installed capacity of tidal energy (OES). Sweden is currently a member of Ocean Energy Systems, participating in Annex IV.

 

As of 2016, Sweden has 6,422 MW total installed wind power capacity, including 190 MW offshore capacity (IEA Wind). Sweden generated 17 TWh of electricity from wind in 2016 (IEA Wind). Sweden is currently a member of IEA Wind, participating in WREN.
