The decision, which signifies a significant U-turn in the left-wing ruling party s policy on nuclear energy, reflects the government s realisation that base-load nuclear power will be needed to support additional intermittent renewables and hydropower generation in the Swedish power mix. ...In ----, the Swedish coalition government (comprising the Social Democrats, the Moderate Party, the Green Party, the Centre Party and the Christian Democrats) ruled that the current tax on nuclear power will be phased out in stages over the next two years. The decision, which signifies a significant U-turn in the left-wing ruling party s policy on nuclear energy, reflects the government s realisation that base-load nuclear power will be needed to support additional intermittent renewables and hydropower generation in the Swedish power mix.

We currently forecast biomass- fired power generation to expand by an annual average of -.- between ---- and ----.
