the Five parties agreed in 2016 if long-term guidelines for energy policy. Among other things, it was established 100 per cent renewable electricity generation in 2040 as a target. It means, on the one hand that there is no ban on nuclear power after the year, on the other hand, that nuclear power should not be maintained after 2040, because uranium is not a renewable source of energy.
this has the Conservatives lately turned against. They want to instead have a goal of 100 percent fossil-free electricity generation, which would open more for the continued use of nuclear power.
– The two goals are not compatible. Then it is better that the Swedish policy decides that we must keep nuclear power after 2040, and, rather, build it, said M-leader Ulf Kristersson recently, in a DN interview.
if the pricing of the stable nuclear-generated electricity higher to make it viable to power reactors or build new ones.
On Wednesday, meet the five parties behind the energiuppgörelsen from 2016: P, MP, M, C and KD. Energy minister Anders Ygeman (S) according to DN to the Conservatives new demands will be taken up.
" We will bring up proposals from the Conservatives on the agenda just as we have done with the other party's proposal. Everything can be discussed, " says Anders Ygeman.
however, He sees big risks to start modifying the parts of the agreement. It would be able to overturn the whole of which was negotiated for nearly two years.
– It is difficult to see that we make about the settlement in the foundation, because it is a compromise between the five parties. All have had to give something, and everyone has got one. If one of the parties is no longer standing up for the agreement, then maybe the other parties will also get an increased willingness to pursue their hobbies. It would increase the uncertainty in the long term, " says Anders Ygeman.
to discuss other things that the Conservatives have pointed to as a looming problem, as power shortages in some regions. The question has, for example, has come to the fore of plans to build a metro station in Stockholm, which would result in an increased demand for electricity.
Also the center to see a good reason to discuss these problems. In C is, however, completely dismissive of the idea to change the wording on 100 per cent renewable electricity by 2040, which is seen as a cornerstone of the settlement agreement.
A C-source interpreters the Conservatives move a part in the forthcoming EUROPEAN election campaign and a response to the increasing competition from the christian democrats which also has opened for more nuclear power.
political considerations is a factor behind the party's new offensive on the nuclear issue. It is considered to have great symbolic value and is, therefore, grateful that the profile of the party. But the Conservatives insist that it is above all practical reasons for their new decision. They point out the climate issues increasingly urgent character and the electrification of society that are necessary to reduce emissions.
Energy minister Anders Ygemans goal is to keep together the quintet behind the agreement from 2016.
" For me it is important to safeguard energiöverenskommelsen that is supposed to provide long-term predictable conditions for Swedish industry and the Swedish energy producers.
