As Sweden’s biggest source of renewable energy, hydro power currently accounts for about 40 per cent of the overall energy mix. We have a relatively plentiful supply of water, and large reservoirs allow the water to be stored and used for production at times of peak demand. Hydro power converts the potential energy of rainwater and meltwater into electricity. In total, there are over 2 000 hydro power stations in Sweden. Of these, just over 200 are larger, with an output of 10 MW or more.
