http://www.thelocal.se/20160610/sweden-agrees-to-continue-nuclear-power In 1980, a national referendum in Sweden voted to abolish nuclear power. But they never did it. Only 1 of 11 nuclear plants was shut down. Now, in announcing a 100% renewable goal, the Swedish government 1) repealed a special tax on nuclear power, and 2) gave permission to build one-for-one replacements for the 10 operating reactors that are getting old. Sadly, Sweden's native supplier, ASEA ATOM (later called ABB ATOM), which built outstandingly good reactors ahead of schedule and under budget, was driven out of business in the meantime. Sweden will now have to try to reestablish a native supplier, or to import.
