Electricity market in Finland: An overview

Sources of electricity in Finland

Finland's energy landscape is diverse, with a significant portion of its electricity generated from various sources. The country has a strong focus on sustainability and efficiency in its energy production. The primary source of electricity in Finland is nuclear power, which plays a pivotal role in the nation's energy strategy. Nuclear energy offers a reliable and low-carbon source of electricity, aligning with Finland's commitment to environmental responsibility and greenhouse gas reduction.

Nuclear Power plant

Alongside nuclear energy, Finland also harnesses power from other sources. These include hydroelectric, wind, and biomass energy. Each of these sources contributes to the national grid, ensuring a balanced and sustainable energy mix. This diversity not only helps in maintaining energy security but also in reducing dependency on fossil fuels, marking a step towards a greener future.

Smart meters and electricity plans in Finnish households

In line with European Union regulations, Finland has achieved a significant milestone in energy management by installing smart meters in 100% of households. These advanced meters measure electricity usage every hour, providing precise and real-time data. This technological advancement plays a crucial role in energy conservation and helps consumers monitor and manage their electricity consumption more effectively.

Most Finnish households have an electricity plan that is closely linked to the current spot price, as displayed on this page. These plans allow consumers to benefit from fluctuations in electricity prices, which vary from hour to hour. This dynamic pricing model empowers consumers to adjust their usage according to the price changes, potentially leading to cost savings and more efficient use of energy resources.

Finland's role in the EU electricity market

Finland is an integral part of the European Union's electricity market. This interconnectedness means that the country not only contributes to but also benefits from the shared energy resources and policies within the EU. Being part of this larger market enhances Finland's energy security and stability, as it can import or export electricity based on demand and supply dynamics.

The EU electricity market is guided by principles of open competition, transparency, and sustainability. Finland's participation in this market aligns with these principles and allows the country to be at the forefront of evolving energy trends and technologies. This integration is pivotal in promoting innovation, efficiency, and renewable energy adoption across the region, furthering the EU's goals of creating a more sustainable and resilient energy landscape.

Questions and answers about electricity

What determines the electricity spot price?

Supply and demand determine the price of electricity in Europe. If there is a high production of electricity from power plants and demand is low, the price will fall. If, on the other hand, the production of electricity is small and demand is high, prices will increase. Therefore, the price of electricity is often highest in winter, as the need for electricity for heating is highest.
