Developing an efficient energy system has for decades been a high priority in the Finnish energy strategy due to the country’s energy-intensive industry, cold climate and long distances as well as scarce of own energy resources.

Remarkable results have been achieved by planning, optimizing and constructing the whole system, including production, transmission, usage and energy reserves, in an efficient and environmentally friendly way – from the very beginning.

In 2008, the International Energy Agency stated that Finland is the ‘model for the world’ in combined heat and power generation or co-generation with high efficiency and low emissions.
