Swedish Wind Power May Slow on Price, Subsidy, Association Says

Electricity prices and subsidies at current levels in Sweden may slow growth in wind power unless decision-makers boost targets, according to the Swedish Wind Energy Association.

The nation needs to raise its political objectives for installing new wind power “if we are to avoid a steep slowdown in the construction of turbine capacity,” Annika Helker Lundstroem, the association’s managing director, said in an e-mail last week. “Currently, low power prices and electricity-certificate subsidies offer no room for raising targets.”
