Fingrid magazine 1/2021: The energy revolution is increasing collaboration

The first Fingrid customer magazine of the year has been published. The theme for this issue of the Fingrid magazine is collaboration in the energy sector, which is being further boosted by the energy revolution. The magazine is published in print and online in Finnish and English. 

It is essential for different stakeholders to work more closely together as new operators and challenges begin to make their presence felt in national, Nordic and European energy markets, according to the theme article in the magazine. Solutions in the energy sector are increasingly intertwined, and it no longer makes sense to do everything alone. 

“By planning and acting together, we can drive things forwards. It is important for every stakeholder to understand the direction in which the sector is heading and how decisions and solutions will affect each party’s operations,” says Jussi Jyrinsalo, Senior Vice President at Fingrid, in an interview.

Jyrinsalo has also written about collaboration in an editorial for the magazine. In addition, there are interviews with Elina Kivioja from Vattenfall, Katja Virkkunen from Oulu Energy and Juha Hiekkala from Fingrid on the topic of collaboration in the sector.

Some of the other articles in issue 1/2021 of the Fingrid magazine:
