European comparisons

  In 2018, Swedish households enjoyed relatively low prices when compared with the rest of Europe, especially Nordic neighbor Denmark. Prices there were more than 10 U.S cents more expensive per kilowatt-hour than in Sweden.

Renewable energy’s impact on prices

Sweden’s comparatively low electricity prices are down to several factors, such as a decrease in final electricity demand and increased generation from renewable sources such as solar power and wind power. Both renewable sources have seen production increase significantly in recent years, with solar production reaching 400 gigawatt-hours in 2018, compared to 21.4 in 2012.
