The Western Boulevard City will change the face of Helsinki’s electricity network

The urban Western Boulevard City planned by the City of Helsinki will require Helen Electricity Network’s high-voltage overhead lines and substation in the area to be moved. This will only be possible if Fingrid, the transmission system operator, brings forward its plans to build a 400-kilovolt live power feed to the city centre. Collaboration has resulted in a solution that enables third-party schedules to be coordinated optimally.

From the carbon black towards the emission-free sources, a balance must be maintained between demand and supply

Electricity generation and consumption are two sides of the same coin. People need electricity, particularly on cold winter days – but those are the days when electricity is most difficult to guarantee and supply. Coal is coming to the end of the road, so we need to look for alternatives. The answer increasingly lies in the expanding Nordic and European electricity markets.

Power-to-X – solutions for energy storage

Solutions that turn electricity into a product – known as Power-to-X solutions – support emission-free, renewable electricity generation and introduce flexibility to electricity consumption. Electricity can also be used to produce carbon neutral or even carbon negative products that can be transported and stored. Fingrid is making preparations for a significant increase in electricity consumption in the coming decades.
