Decisive power for a better tomorrow
Pohjolan Voima has always made bold decisions and has played a key role in building Finland’s competitiveness and wellbeing. Our customers are Finnish export industry and energy companies, as well as cities. Competitive, zero-emission electricity is an important factor in building their future – and the future of our society as a whole.
In the sections that follow, we’ll explain what makes us a decisive power.
Towards a carbon-neutral society
We are one of Finland’s biggest energy companies, our share of the electricity produced in Finland is approximately a fifth. We have the responsibility and willingness to guide our nation towards a carbon-neutral future. Of all our electricity production, 97% is carbon neutral, but that isn’t enough for us. We aim at 99% carbon-neutral electricity production and 85% carbon-neutral heat production in 2025.
A digital road to the future of energy
With the help of digitalisation, we can make our production plants even more energy efficient, emission-free and reliable. Olkiluoto 3 represents technological excellence even on a global scale, because when in regular electricity production, it will be one of the world’s first fully digitised nuclear power plants.
The need for balancing power increases
Fluctuations in electricity production will be quicker and bigger in the future, because the electricity system will increasingly rely on weather-dependent wind and solar power. This will increase the need for balancing power that ensures the balance between eletricity generation and consumption. Hydropower plays a crucial role as a regulating balancing power: it helps us ensure that electricity will always be available in Finland.
