We have some 1.3 million electricity sales customers in the Nordic countries, about a half of them are in Sweden. We serve private households, large industrial companies and local electricity utilities. The electricity is produced with CO2-free hydro and nuclear power. Private customers in Sweden can choose which hydropower plant’s electricity they want to buy or they can opt for electricity produced with wind or solar power.
In 2015, our total power generation capacity in Sweden was 4669 MW. We have a total of 130 hydropower plants in Sweden; these plants yield more than 50% of the produced electricity. In addition, Fortum is a co-owner in two Swedish nuclear power plants, Oskarshamn and Forsmark. We have some 600 employees.
