Sweden and Norway jointly raise renewable target

Norway and Sweden have decided to increase their target for renewable electricity production by almost 8 percent. 

Under the new target, the two Nordic countries aim to raise the amount of electricity they produce in total from renewable energy sources such as wind, hydro or biomass to 28.4 terawatt-hours (TWh) per year by 2020 from 26.4 TWh.

This new target will be effective on 1 January 2016, pending legislative approval in both countries.
