New circular economy solution – perpetual motion machine for property owner: heats, cools and produces heat for the district heating network carbon-neutrally
The planned residential area of Postipuisto in Helsinki is setting a new standard for energy efficiency in new-build developments. The apartment block being built on the former site of the Pasila overland transport centre will be heated and cooled carbon-neutrally. The innovative energy solutions developed by Helen and Ilmarinen make use of several different heat sources and may constitute the solution to sustainable energy use in buildings in Finland.
The energy company Helen wants to support Finnish leisure activity in these uncertain economic times and launch a national campaign to this end. The campaign is searching for five sport or leisure activity clubs that know how to spread positive energy. The campaign patron is Roni Back, one of the most popular YouTubers in Finland.
Demand for solar power products has increased exponentially in one year – Helen’s new Virtual Battery now enables storage of own solar power for later use
Helen is now launching the Virtual Battery on the Finnish market. It enables longer-term storage of self-produced solar power and its utilisation also when the sun is not shining. The product is currently relevant as the demand for solar power products has increased tenfold in just one year.
Meadow roof growing in Munkkisaari – result of multidisciplinary collaboration brings nature into the city and attracts pollinators
Helen's Munkkisaari heating plant will get a fresh look this summer, when the old green roof is turned into a verdant meadow. The bright vegetation will delight local residents and passers-by, as well as improving the diversity of city nature: the meadow will contain a mixture of species that will also attract pollinating insects.
The energy sector is undergoing a major transformation, with challenges posed by digitalisation, climate change and the changing market structures. Helen’s vision is to make the opportunities of a new energy era available to everyone – Sari Mannonen appointed SVP of Solution Business.
Net sales were reduced due to mild winter, impacts of the corona crisis are felt in Helen’s business environment The first quarter of 2020 was exceptional in many respects. Heat sales were decreased due to the uncommonly mild winter, while the corona crisis had an impact on electricity distribution especially in March: in Helsinki, electricity consumption was down by as much as 15 per cent as a result of the service sector shut down. In total, electricity distribution decreased by 4 per cent in
Helen continues to invest in carbon neutrality: one of the world’s largest heat pumps planned for Helsinki, enabling faster reduction in the use of coal
Helen is expanding the heating and cooling plant located under the Katri Vala Park in Sörnäinen with a new heat pump, the seventh in all. The investment is the first to replace coal use in the Salmisaari power plant: the output of the new heat pump corresponds to more than 10 per cent of the thermal capacity of Salmisaari.
In the energy sector, the transformation of environmental technology and the circular economy provide breakthroughs comparable to the internet at the same time as the role of consumers and data increases, says Juha-Pekka Weckström who took over the position of Helen’s CEO at the beginning of April. The central elements of the company’s strategy are carbon neutrality and strong customer focus. Maintaining a high level of security of supply and producing sufficient volumes of electricity and heat
