A surge in wind turbines in Sweden mean the Nordic nation is on track to hit its 2030 renewable energy target this year.

The Swedish Wind Energy Association has announced that a boom in wind turbine installs means that by the end of 2018 Sweden will have 3,700 turbines online.

This, combined with existing capacity, means that Sweden will be producing 18 terawatt-hours of new renewable energy by the end of next decade. This surge in renewable power has pushed forward prices down by 70% for 2021.

By December this year, Sweden will boast 7,506MW of wind capacity. With another whopping 2,609MW of onshore wind capacity on track to be added in 2018 and 2019.
