State-owned Vattenfall is considering the possibility of extending the operating lifetimes of its nuclear reactors to beyond 2040, reports broadcaster SVT.
Such a move would contradict the goal of the 2016 energy agreement, concluded by the government, the Centre Party, Moderates and Christian Democrats, which is for Sweden to have 100 per cent renewable electricity by 2040.
German energy supply company Uniper, which along with Vattenfall owns the Ringhals nuclear power plant, is also mulling new nuclear reactors.
