Electricity producers

Most of the electricity in Sweden is generated by nuclear power and hydropower, although the share of renewables is steadily rising. Producers can choose whether the electricity they generate is to be sold to electricity traders or users, sold via the electricity market or used for their own purposes. Acquisitions and mergers have reduced the number of major players over the last 20 years. The largest producers in Sweden are: state-owned Vattenfall, Fortum, E.ON, Statkraft and Skellefteå Kraft.
