Working together for a modern energy system

Fingrid works closely with several entities in the energy sector, especially now that the power system is transitioning towards clean energy.

Energy sector operators include the electricity vendors and suppliers trading in the electricity market, as well as the authorities and interest groups.

The relevant authorities are the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment, the Energy Authority and the National Emergency Supply Agency.

The interest groups include the Finnish Wind Power Association, Finnish Energy, the Association of Energy Users in Finland and Local Power.

Motiva is a state-owned company that promotes sustainable development by means such as providing energy advice to consumers, municipalities, companies and the public sector.

The big question facing every energy sector operator is how to reduce emissions in line with the targets and make Finland carbon neutral by 2035.

“One important theme is the modernisation of the energy system. This concerns the entire energy sector and, thereby, electricity production and consumption,” says Asta Sihvonen-Punkka, Executive Vice President at Fingrid.

“The structure of electricity production is changing rapidly, as electricity is produced not only from traditional hydro and nuclear power but also the fast-growing wind and solar power technologies. At the same time, it is important to enable industry, transport, heating and other consumption facilities to switch to clean electricity.”

Fingrid works in close and effective cooperation with the authorities and interest groups to address these matters.

“The various parties engage in open dialogue and exchange of information. Our culture has always been one of extensive discussion to identify the common ground and the best way forward,” Sihvonen-Punkka says.
