Energy for the future

Many different solutions are needed to tackle the global climate challenge – and everyone must contribute to this effort.


Energy production

We produce energy effectively with combined and heat and power generation and balance the production with heat and cooling accumulators. We produce solar power in our own plants, and we buy the rest of the renewable energy from other parts of the country.


Helsinki Clean Tech Hub

Change is the only constant. It drives us in the energy transition from fossils to renewables. We at Helen are turning the traditional and centralized energy system into a platform enabling sustainable living and moving. We will become carbon neutral by 2030 and we are making it happen with our customers and partners.


Power plants

Our power plants are located in various parts of Helsinki. Find out more about our power plants!


Specific emissions of energy production

We report the emissions released per each produced energy unit.


Energy sources

Our energy sources include coal, natural gas, nuclear power, hydro power, waste heat, sea water, wood pellets, biogas, fuel oil, as well as wind power and solar energy.
