Majority wants to expand Swedish nuclear power

Published 27 June 2021 at 20.07

In the latest survey, 46 percent of Swedes believe that we should “continue to use nuclear power and, if necessary, build new reactors”, which is the highest proportion ever.

The total support for development is thus for the first time greater than the 45 per cent who either want to keep existing nuclear power (31 per cent) and those who want to phase out nuclear power (10 per cent).

Around 10 percent have not decided, but among those who have an opinion on the issue, expansion now has for the first time a majority of Swedes behind it.

Swedes’ support has risen in line with trends, but in the past year the support has increased sharply and rapidly. As recently as 2017, only 28 percent answered that they could imagine newly built nuclear power.
