Swedish nuclear expansion postponed

Plans to replace worn out reactors postponed after political brawl.

The Swedish center-right government has decided to postpone its new strategy on nuclear power – at least until after the general election.

The holdup in plans to replace old reactors as they wear out is a response to a key Center Party MP’s threat to vote with the opposition on the issue, Swedish Radio News said Wednesday.

Nuclear power has for along time been a sensitive political question in Sweden, and maybe even more so today with green energy such as wind and wave power in the swim. In 1980 Sweden voted to phase out nuclear power. But still ten of the country’s twelve reactors are still up and running.

The government now want to remove the ban on building new reactors from January 1st, and not in August – one month head of September's election.

Last year Sweden’s government agreed that it would be allowed to build new reactors in Sweden. Opposition parties the Green Party and the Left Party slammed the new planed nuclear power plants as a "misery" and a "betrayal".

In October state-owned Vattenfall, Europe's fifth-largest electricity producer, said it would build at least one new nuclear reactor in Sweden in a joint project with some of the countries leading industrial companies. The aim is to secure future energy production and electricity supply at competitive prices.

The government is also planning for a tenfold increase in wind energy by 2020. Wind energy only contributed about 2 percent to total power consumption – something the government plans to increase to 20 percent during the decade.
