Renewable energy section makes no sense.[edit]

In the renewable energy section there is one statement stating in 2005 renewables were 50% while in the list is states 41%. Also again for 2012 where one says 60% and the other says 48%.

This is very confusing and if there is conflicting reports, you should not be posting both up on the site. Determine which is more accurate and post only that one or remove the one who's information is out dated.


    == Renewable energy ==
    In 2013 renewable energy investment was more than US$1 billion in Sweden. [1] 
The share of renewable energy in Sweden was 50 % in 2005 and 60 % in 2012.[2]
The share of renewable energy in Sweden was 38 % in 2000 and 48 % in 2012. The share of renewable energy 10 years average 2001-2010 was 42.7 % and 5 years average 2006-2010 was 45.6 %. The share of renewable energy in Sweden:[3] 1990 - 33 %
1995 - 36 %
2000 - 38 %
2005 - 41 %
2010 - 48 %

Confusing[edit]

In the first table, electricity makes about 23% of the primary energy. Then it is said that hydroelectric power accounts for more than half of energy production, although all that hydro plants produce is electricity, which counts only up to that 23%. I can imagine the first table includes also transportation and heat and the latter info is about electricity only. Then again in e.g. [1] hydro and nuclear seem to be neck to neck, which means hydro can't be 60%, because there are many others too. What am I missing? I bet you gave up with mechanical water mills 100 years ago. Either something is not explained very well or something is not correct here. It would be also nice to know why numbers don't add up in the first table. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.128.188.180 (talk) 21:00, 22 March 2016 (UTC)
