Innovative solutions for 100 percent renewable power in Sweden

Sweden has set out to meet 100% of its electricity needs from renewable sources by 2040. With the essential infrastructure for a decarbonised power system in place, the country is well positioned to help the world meet the crucial climate goals. In the meantime, Sweden itself needs innovative solutions to meet its ambitious 100% renewables policy goal. This study from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), produced in consultation with the Swedish Energy Agency (Energimyndigheten), provides four tailor-made solutions to integrate high shares of renewables into the Swedish power system.
