The most promising of the Nordic nations in the whole of the European subcontinent is Sweden in terms of renewable and clean energy. The nation has proved time and again that there isn’t anything that it wouldn’t do to achieve complete clean and green ecosystem to save the environment.
Sweden has become the hub for renewable energy conglomerates with major names either emerging from there or having bases of operations and research laboratories there. In some way all the renewable energy will have some Swedish aspect to it and that’s more than enough to show what influence the nation has been in this industry. Its reputation precedes it and attracts a major investor to invest in these huge projects that the country plans to develop. Hermes Infrastructure and CGN Europe Energy (CGNEE) have partnered to acquire an 813MW portfolio of five Swedish onshore wind farms from Aquila Capital. The portfolio comprises two operational onshore wind farms with an aggregate capacity of 216MW and three onshore wind projects in late-stage construction with an aggregate capacity of 597MW, all located in Sweden. Once fully operational, the portfolio will increase renewable-energy generation capacity already owned and managed by Hermes Infrastructure on behalf of a range of UK and international institutional investors to more than 1 gigawatt stated Peter Hofbauer, head of the infrastructure, Hermes GPE.
As Sweden emerges as an energy hub and a leader to look up to the world needs to take inspiration from this nation to combat our recent issue of climate change and emergency. Sweden truly has become the role model for the world to follow.
