In order to curb climate change, we need ambitious targets, which are found in the government’s new policy outlines. Helen is currently the biggest investor in the reduction of the use of coal in Finland, with an objective of carbon neutral production by 2050.
On 14 October, Helen was among the first companies to sign the new Energy Efficiency Agreements for the years 2017-2025. At the same time, Helen showed the way in energy efficiency by launching its new energy saving service, Heat Pledge.
Helen is launching a nationwide Heat Pledge campaign to reduce emissions in connection with consumption peaks in the winter. The Heat Pledge is also the first publication in Helen’s new Enne service aimed at consumers interested in responsible energy use.
According to a study commissioned by Helen, the important key words of the energy future are the sun, energy saving and energy efficiency, utilisation of waste, as well as circular economy. It is critical for Helen and the entire energy sector what shape and form the EU’s sustainability criteria for biomass, which are under preparation this autumn, will take.
Helen is seeking new partners for local renewable energy production projects. Selected project partners will receive a total of EUR 50,000 in financial aid.
Helen and Gasum have entered into a major biogas partnership agreement. Helen will begin to produce district heat with Finnish biogas made from waste and this way increase the use of renewable sources of energy.
A collaboration between cities, the Finnish state and companies benefits global urbanisation.
Helen will make a significant investment in district cooling energy by building a second industrial-scale heating and cooling plant in Helsinki. This investment will reduce Helen’s carbon dioxide emissions as fossil fuels can be replaced by heat pumps in district heat production.
Helen Ltd is carrying out one of the biggest renewable energy investments in Finland by building a pellet-fired heating plant in Salmisaari. The plant will have the largest pellet boiler in Finland.
Finland’s largest solar power plant started operations today in the Kivikko district of Helsinki. Owned by Helen Ltd, the solar power plant has almost 3,000 solar panels, and its estimated annual production corresponds to the annual consumption of about 350 one-bedroom apartments.
