Has the day come for industrial-scale solar power?

Experts believe that technological advances and a strong electricity grid will pave the way for new solar power projects in Finland. At present, Finland’s largest solar power plants are fairly small by international comparison, mainly consisting of projects constructed to meet the needs of specific properties or companies.

Aiming towards the power system of the future

Connecting renewable forms of energy to the grid involves challenges that Fingrid tackles with R&D projects. New solutions are used to ensure the security of the energy supply and cost-effectiveness during the global energy revolution.


Aurora pyramids – the world’s northernmost virtual power plant

Tourism company Hullu Poro is introducing a virtual power plant service in Kittilä to enable connections to reserve markets, which balance out electricity generation and consumption. The Aurora Pyramids suites have recently been connected to the service. The solution helps support sustainable development, but the company also benefits financially.

What is inertia?

The increase in renewable energy and the connection of wind and solar power to the grid have raised discussion about the concept of inertia. Fingrid’s Senior Expert Minna Laasonen explains what’s going on.


On behalf of the environment

Solar power is completely emission-free electricity, which means that using it reduces carbon dioxide emissions. Providing the chance to charge an electric car encourages cleaner transport. Fingrid now has both.

Utilising open data in the energy market

More accurate device and load-specific consumption profiles and different types of open data will make it possible to optimise dimensioning of the existing energy system in the most economically feasible manner. The starting points for utilising open data in the energy market are very attractive, as nearly all customers have electricity meters that can be read in real time.
