The aim of the energy agreement between the government, the Moderates, the Centre Party and the Christian Democrats must be to achieve a 100 per cent fossil-free energy system – not, as now, to phase out nuclear power, writes Moderate Party leader Ulf Kristersson along with Carl-Oskar Bohlin and Jessica Rosencrantz from the party.
The Moderates are going to arrange talks on updating the agreement, including that they want the goal to be changed from the goal of 100 per cent renewable to a goal of 100 per cent fossil-free. This would also give an important signal to the market that there is political support for nuclear power long after 2040, they write.
In addition, they propose further reforms such as more earmarked funding for nuclear research, increased harmonisation with the EU and reviewing the design of the energy market.
