In Italy, approximately 15 per cent of the total electricity used is imported. And 8 per cent of the electricity is produced from solar cells – which is the highest percentage in the world.
Electricity production from wind power in the UK has doubled over the past two years and there are plans to triple the percentage of wind power by 2020. The UK has also decided to build a new nuclear plant.
In Spain, 3 per cent of all electricity comes from solar power and wind power installations account for 23,000 MW. But the electricity subsidy situation is now changing drastically.
What will the energy sources of the future be? What will the grid look like? What will consumer behaviour be like? What are the challenges and what are the plans for the future?
The vision for Sweden expressed in IVA’s Electricity Crossroads project is:
“A sustainable electricity system for an efficient and secure electricity supply in 2030 and beyond.”
