Climate warning

Swedish rightwing supported Government said no to a huge see based windpark and wants more of old nuclear technology

Minister: Can build ten reactors before 2045 Climate and Environment Minister Romina Pourmokhtari (L) says that Sweden needs and can build ten new nuclear reactors by 2045. Ten new nuclear reactors are needed and can be built before 2045. That is the government's goal, according to Climate and Environment Minister Romina Pourmokhtari (L). But a first sod before the next election, as the Moderates have envisioned, seems unlikely. - The government sees that new nuclear power corresponding to at least ten conventional reactors needs to be commissioned in the 2030s and 40s, says climate and environment minister Romina Pourmokhtari (L) at a press meeting about the government's plans for investments in new nuclear power. This is a prerequisite for meeting Sweden's expected, doubled electricity needs, according to the minister. Last spring, Finance Minister Elisabeth Svantesson (M) said that the government will have time to break ground during the mandate period, that is, before the next parliamentary election in September 2026. - That there is a permit and a shovel in the ground, it is still possible, says Pourmokhtari, but adds that for her, shovels here or there are not the important thing, the important thing is that the government pushes for more nuclear power. operation takes at least two or three years, according to him. Romina Pourmokhtari believes that a first reactor of a newer, smaller type than today's large reactors in Sweden could be in operation during the first half of the 2030s. - If it is an SMR reactor, I would definitely guess in 2030, 2032, 2034, but now we are standing here speculating, the climate and environment minister told TT after the press meeting. She believes that there are and will be players who want to invest in new reactors, even though the government does not want to promise, for example, a fixed price for electricity production for a long time from a new reactor. State credit guarantees of 400 billion and changed and more equal conditions with other types of energy will make it attractive to invest.

    And we still have some years of this clown government to support

    It's very disappointing for it to disregard the potential for clean and sustainable energy alternatives in favor of maintaining outdated and potentially risky projects.
