Sweden Won’t Heed Industry Call for Higher Wind-Power Targets

Sweden will not respond to calls from wind-power developers to boost targets for alternative energy output, for fear of undermining investor confidence.

“I know it is not always easy to be a wind-power entrepreneur, with low electricity certificate prices triggering calls for political intervention,” Anna-Karin Hatt, Swedish minister for information technology and energy, said today at a conference in Stockholm, according to an e-mailed copy of her speech.
