Fingrid will be the first European transmission grid operator to make its real-time data storages available to partners. The open data collected by Fingrid can be utilised to provide companies, consumers and electricity market actors with new services and financial benefits as it becomes possible to monitor things like energy consumption with more accuracy. »
JYVSECTEC, operating at the JAMK University of Applied Sciences in Jyväskylä, has developed a realistic training environment where industry operators can train to prevent cyber attacks. Fingrid and Elenia piloted the training environment in the beginning of the year. »
This year, the theme for Fingrid's information security unit is training. The aim of the themed year is to create similar traditions for cyber training as for any other training by the transmission system operator. In the energy industry, interest in cyber training has developed in the wake of a threatening situation. »
The entire electricity system is undergoing an unprecedented change. Fingrid’s aim is to have effectively functioning electricity markets in the Baltic Sea region that ensure reliability of supply in all conditions. However, the “clean electricity system of the future” will require strong transmission connections in order to operate optimally. ￫
Fingrid has committed to the United Nations’ Global Compact corporate responsibility initiative and to promoting its sustainable development goals. Responsibility has been a part of the transmission system operator’s values and operating methods for a long time. Now the UN’s global sustainable development goals have also been linked with Fingrid’s business targets.
Don’t keep the windows open too long. We have to save nature because otherwise we won’t have it anymore. These are just some of the practical and even global issues that second graders at Pohjois-Haaga elementary school pondered when we asked them about what they had learned during Energy Saving Week. ￫
What if the electricity was cut off for a couple of weeks because of exceptional weather conditions? What would happen to the flow of information if normal communication devices didn’t work? Where would citizens get heat and water and how would we secure fuel distribution? These threats were the starting points for the large Jäätyvä (dealing with a widespread power outage caused by freezing weather) exercise held in Kuopio in October.
As a transmission system operator, Fingrid has a central role in powering Finland. During the past year 2017, we continued to develop the grid for the power system of the future, writes Fingrid's President and CEO Jukka Ruusunen. Take a look at the Annual Report: annualreport.fingrid.fi/en/

The world is changing and Fingrid has to change with it. Major change factors are the energy system revolution and changes taking place in society. Today’s Fingrid will not be enough for our customers in the future. PUBLISHED 23.11.2017 ￫
The days when electricity flowed in one direction from combustion plants to consumer outlets are over. We are now in the midst of a global energy revolution caused by decentralised technologies and digitalisation – and Finland should take advantage of it. PUBLISHED 24.11.2017 ￫
Main grid use, maintenance and construction affect the environment in many ways. Environmental safety is vital to Fingrid, so we compiled a pocket-sized information package – an environmental pack – for convenient use at worksites. ￫
Turvapuisto – an occupational safety training park – was opened in Kuopio at the end of August. The park is designed as a practical training environment for organisations. Other safety training parks are located in Espoo and Oulu. ￫
