The network for wind power was founded in 2008 by instructions from the Swedish Government. The network aims at fostering the expansion of wind power by means of information activities, educational activities, networking and economic support to wind power projects. The network was developed in light of the national objective of having a preparedness to expand wind power capacity by a corresponding annual electricity production of 30TWh, as decided by the Swedish Riksdag.
