The theme of Fingrid magazine 2/2023 is the transformation of the energy system
The second Fingrid Magazine of the year has been published. The theme of this issue is the transformation of the energy system.
In the magazine’s editorial, Fingrid’s President & CEO Jukka Ruusunen lauds Finland’s incredible opportunity to create new industries to resolve the world’s emissions problems. The new wave of industrialisation will require an immense amount of electricity. Fingrid estimates that electricity consumption in Finland could increase by up to 50 per cent as a result of industrial investments this decade.
“Electricity will be a critical factor in this competition – it must be emission-free, inexpensive and reliable. And Finland can offer that electricity,” he writes.
In an interview for the magazine’s cover story, Laura Ihamäki and Antti-Juhani Nikkilä from Fingrid say that numerous operators are planning new solar parks and offshore wind farms in Finland. Finland needs offshore wind power and industrial-scale solar power in addition to onshore wind power to respond to the increased electricity consumption due to the green transition and new consumption investments. There are still many matters to resolve related to the construction of offshore wind power.
