Sweden building enough wind turbines to reach its 2030 renewable energy target by the end of this year

Target: add 18 TWh wind en route to 100% renewables by 2040. On schedule by end 2018: 3,681 turbines, 7.5 GW, 19.8 TWh. So WEF reports.

Other Swedish targets: 50% more efficient energy use by 2030. Net zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2045.

This Swedish leadership in wider context: “As part of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, the EU set a renewable energy directivethat sets a binding target of 20% final energy consumption from renewable sources by 2020. The vast majority of EU countries are well on trackto reach their 2020 binding targets for renewable energy.”
