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
In the Nordic countries, hydropower plays a significant role in balancing fluctuations in electricity production and in improving delivery reliability. Hydropower is the best friend of new renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power. As wind and solar power production increase, we also need more flexible, emissions-free electricity production that we can use to quickly respond to changes in production and in demand. Renewable hydropower production doesn’t generate any emissions into the air, water or soil.
A significant proportion of our capacity comes from about 130 power plants in Central Sweden, but we also have more than 30 hydropower plants in Finland.
