Those costs will rise to as much as 40 billion kroner over 15 years at current prices, with most of the money going to producers in Sweden…Sweden’s wind output rose 38 percent to an unprecedented 9.9 terawatt-hours last year…Norway gets 97 percent of its electricity from hydropower, [but] joined the system to boost security of supply when cold, dry weather draws on water reserves…” click here for more
