The use of electricity is growing rapidly. At the same time, we must find new ways to create energy and lower emissions. Our goal is ever-cleaner production of electricity and heat, the efficient use of renewable energy sources, the preservation of natural resources, and the promotion of the circular economy.
On this page, you will find a variety of solutions that can help in building a more sustainable future. Come and join the change – we will create a cleaner world together.

Electricity from renewable energy sources, heat in a modern and ecological way
Since early 2016, we have taken concrete steps with Fingrid and 70 households in Finland to make an increasing proportion of electricity production rely solely on renewable energy sources in the future. The participating households have allowed Fortum to continue to heat their boilers with night-rate electricity – but now at slightly different times. The heating is switched on automatically when there is excess power in the network. Similarly, the hottest boilers are switched off when the electric current in the network starts to decrease.
In this first phase, the households are not actually producing electricity for the network, but by using their boiler smartly they are able to prevent the costly and environmentally damaging stand-by plant from being started up. Our vision is that once renewable energy, electric cars and solar panels become more common, households can become increasingly self-reliant.
