One of the main hurtles that Sweden originally faced when making the decision for low carbon emissions, is the fact that much of their economy is based on manufacturing. Their high electricity requirements came from high oil and coal usage, and they knew this had to be changed. This included replacing all nuclear capacity at the end of their lifecycle. Their success was concentrically focused and over what is considered a short period of time, they accomplished their goals. There is, however, more work to be done for Sweden to continue to reduce their carbon footprint.
Sweden currently stands as one of the examples of a country that has accomplished what they set out to do and to continue the path of excellence, they must adopt technologies that will make drastic changes for the better for both energy and their economy.
