The article reports on the reform of the national energy policy in Sweden following the victory of the Centre-Right Alliance group in the parliamentary elections in September 2006. The Centre Party criticised the energy policy proposed by the Social Democrats for insufficient investment in renewables to justify nuclear shutdowns. The alliance will likely increase nuclear power and gas-fired production capacity. It cites the implication of the defeat of the Social Democrats in the election.
