Early shutdown of the nuclear power plant Ringhals

Location | January 2015 - May 2015

Vattenfall has decided to close Ringhals unit 1 and 2 earlier than previous planned by 2025. Instead, the shutdown of 1.5GW capacity is expected to occur between 2018 and 2020.

Ea Energy Analyses has assessed the impact on electricity prices in Denmark for the Danish Energy Agency. The Balmorel model was used to analyse the electricity prices with and without Ringhals unit 1 and 2. The analyses describes in detail which power plants will deliver the electricity instead of Ringhals.
