Scenarioanalys över Sveriges elproduktion år 2050: Kan Sverige försörja sig med 100 % förnybar
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
The aim of this report was to investigate if Sweden can have 100 % renewable electricity production in the year 2050. The conclusion is that it is possible but under certain conditions. For instance wave power must be in commercial use. When wind power and solar power represent a large percentage of the electric production there will be a lack of electric power during the winter but during the summer there will be a surplus of electric power. Both the surplus and the lack of electric power need to be taken into account. Two possible ways to handle this are by demand side management and to have good transmissions capacity to other countries. Both ways have their benefits and disadvantages and more studies need to investigate if those ways can manage the surplus and the lack of electric power.
