Bioenergy bigger than oil in Sweden

While EU has a goal to have 20% renewable energy in 2020, Sweden has the highest goal among these 27 countries with 49% renewable energy in 2020. However, if the current trend keeps going, we might be able to even pass this goal. The recent statistics shows that the share of renewable energy in Sweden in 2009 was 46.3%. The data also shows a share of bioenergy as 31.8%, compares to the share of oil that was 30.9%, according to SVEBIOS.
