On Friday, Sweden's ruling political party managed to reach an agreement with its opposition to continue with nuclear power, which it had previously agreed to phase out and freeze nuclear energy. The energy deal is aimed at securing long term energy supply to households and industries. As part of the deal, energy consumption taxes are expected to rise, which in turn could boost Sweden's CPI by 0.20% according to some estimates. Further details will be announced including the proposed energy tax hike and the time frame from when the new taxes come into effect.
