Furniture giant Ikea believes that solar energy is facing explosive development both globally and in Sweden. It has
now selected rapid growth company Svea Solar as its partner as it begins selling solar cells on the Swedish market
after the summer.
“The solar market is marginal in Sweden despite the conditions being just as good as in Germany, which is the
leading solar country. However, by 2030 solar could represent at least 10 per cent of Sweden’s energy mix,
compared to 0.3 per cent today,” says Jonas Carlehed, sustainability director at the Ikea group in Sweden.
However, the company believes politicians need to introduce more reforms to “capture the enormous boom”.
