A booming wind energy industry has put Sweden on track to achieve its ambitious 2030 renewable energy goal almost a decade in advance. With 3,681 turbines estimated to be in place by the year-end, Sweden might comfortably generate 46.4 terawatt-hours of renewable energy by 2021, reaching its target nine years early.

Sweden has its sight set on the goal of going 100 percent renewable by 2040 and to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2045, notes Green Matters.

Sweden’s incredible progress in the green energy sphere is a bright news for the world’s least developed nations and islands as well given that the Nordic nation plans to ramp up its renewable power supplies to improve global energy mix, writes Inhabitat.
