  • Production data and the size of the investment are not always public. The summaries therefore include estimated production and investments.
  • The information on job opportunities comes from Vindkraftcentrum’s reports on jobs, employment and educational needs.
  • The information on lowered electricity prices comes from Sweco’s report on Renewable electricity and international connections.
