Sweden’s evolving hydropower sector: Renovation, restoration and concession change

A new report from the Stockholm Environment Institute reviews developments in Sweden's hydropower sector between 1990 and 2012. The report Sweden’s evolving hydropower sector: Renovation, restoration and concession change by Peter Rudberg focuses on existing infrastructure and installations and on their maintenance and upgrades. It also examines the measures taken to restore and maintain ecological qualities in the affected rivers. To provide an overview of the case studies in the report, Nordpil prepared an overview map of the hydropower stations covered, including descriptions.
