    Policy description Under Article 4 of the EU Directive 2009/28/EC, member countries of the European Union were obliged to draft and submit to the European Commission, National Renewable Action Plans (NREAPs) by 30 June 2010. The NREAP should outline a pathway which will allow member states to meet their 2020 renewable energy, energy efficiency and GHG cuts targets. (See also Energy and Climate Policy Framework: "A sustainable energy and climate policy for the environment, competitiveness and long-term stability".)

    The overall renewable energy target for Sweden is to have at least a 50 % of share of energy generated from renewable sources in gross final energy consumption. Based on the forecast and trajectories made for the NREAP, the sectoral goals for renewable energy by 2020 are: Heating and cooling: 62% of heat consumption met by renewable sources; Electricity: 63% of electricity demand met by electricity generated from renewable energy sources; Transport: 14% of energy demand met by renewable energy sources.
