On Wednesday morning, the five parties behind the energiuppgörelsen from 2016 at the ministry of industry. Before the meeting, the leaders of the party, Ulf Kristersson (M) and Ebba Busch Thor (KD) launched nine energy requirements in an article in DN Debate. A central piece of the puzzle for them is that nuclear energy need to get new conditions to be maintained, in addition to those that the parties agreed on three years ago.
Lars Hjälmered is the Conservatives representative in energigruppen.
– We have presented a common agenda for an updated energiöverenskommelse. There have been new challenges in terms of capacity, competitiveness and climate. Where are the other parties S, C and MP is the answer required. They want to initiate negotiations with the us? Where is the issue now, " he says.

the question for the M and KD not to proceed with the planned decommissioning of the reactors of the nuclear power plant Ringhals.
– Stängningsbeslutet was taken a couple of years ago and then there have been a number of things. The price of electricity is doubled and we have an intensification of the discussion on climate. Then, we think that it is reasonable that the owners of the Waterfall and Uniper do a re-analysis. Are the conditions for running the reactors on, " says Lars Hjälmered.
From the government's side, there are no plans to state that the owner would map out a new course in the question of the Waterfall, according to the energy minister Anders Ygeman (S), which leads energigruppen.
" the Government has not taken any decision to close the reactors. As far as I understand is the basis for Vattenfall's decision for the economy and security. I assume that the Waterfall makes the analyses required, regardless of the political debate. It would be profitable to extend reactors life so I start from that they do it, " says Anders Ygeman.
– It is not current.
According to Anders Ygeman, the other three parties S, C and the MP has now come up with counter-offers to the demands of the M and KD have presented.
– Now, we assume that the other parties submit their proposals. I imagine that the Centre party and the Green party's list will look different. The strength of the agreement is that it brings together two parties which likes nuclear power, with two parties that do not make it. Despite these contradictions, we have been able to provide a stable environment for the market.
– We stand behind the agreement. Above all, we want to have long-term rules of the game and make the green transition, " says Anders Ygeman.
From the Centre party meets kärnkraftsoffensiven from M and KD compact resistance.
– It would require massive subsidies to get to this. For me it is not up to date, " says Rickard Nordin, The centre party's spokesperson on climate and energy issues.
