”Ydinenergialla tuotetulle sähkölle oli kylmillä talvikeleillä todellakin kysyntää. Aiempaa haastavampi energiamarkkinatilanne on lisännyt ymmärrystä ydinenergian käytölle myös ympäri Eurooppaa. Kannustankin suomalaisia aktiivisuuteen EU:n suuntaan. Brysselin koneeseen kannattaa astua”, kirjoittaa teollisuusneuvos Juho Korteniemi kolumnissaan.

Clean energy is one of the main themes of Prime Minister Petteri Orpo’s government program in Finland. The energy and climate policy actions for the coming years will be outlined in a comprehensive national strategy. The key objective is to establish a predictable and economically sustainable foundation for the significant investment efforts needed to advance both climate goals and our national economy.

Hydrogen is the fuel of the stars and makes our life possible. Humanity, however, is still in its infancy in harnessing fusion nuclear power as an energy source, so the role of hydrogen on Earth is different - at least for the moment. Traditionally, it already works as a raw material for many industrial processes, for example oil refining. A new, climate-based need is to utilize clean hydrogen in industrial processes that replace fossil-based production.

It's only been four years since Finland's natural gas imports were entirely dependent on the Russian pipeline connection. At the beginning of 2020, the Balticconnector between Finland and Estonia was commissioned, and a year ago, in the conditions of energy crisis, so was the floating LNG terminal in Inkoo. In an amazingly short time, Finland has changed gas monopoly to global LNG market. After the Balticconnector pipeline breach in October 2023, the task is to secure steady deliveries of gas over the winter.

This year, more than 40 per cent of Finnish electricity is produced with nuclear energy. In the future, nuclear energy can also be produced in smaller units and used for new purposes, such as heating industry and buildings. A new outlook for the sector's activities requires a new approach also in the administration, writes Head of Unit Juho Korteniemi.
