29 Oct 2015
The production of electricity in Finland amounted to 65.4 TWh in 2014. Production declined by four per cent from the previous year and hit its lowest level in the 2000s. Production of district heat and industrial heat also decreased slightly. The use of renewable fuels decreased by one per cent in the production of electricity and heat. The use of fossil fuels also diminished, as 24 per cent less hard coal and 14 per cent less natural gas was used than in 2013. By contrast, the use of peat increased by seven per cent. These data derive from the statistics on the production of electricity and heat compiled by Statistics Finland.
Statistical releases will not be issued in English from these statistics in 2015.
