Chamber of Commerce calls for more nuclear energy

The Swedish Chamber of Commerce (Sveriges Handelskammare) has called for a long-term energy strategy to keep down electricity costs for Swedish businesses.

In a new report, the Chamber of Commerce proposes more nuclear power as part of the solution.

“We are now seeing serious signs that Swedish companies are being damaged by high energy costs and a lack of a long-term Swedish energy policy.

“Companies are moving abroad or choosing to locate new factories in other countries as a direct result of this.

“It is time for a broad energy agreement that takes into account the possibility for Swedish companies to stay in the country,” said Peter Egardt, CEO of the Swedis Chamber of Commerce.
