Government Decision on Energy Efficiency Measures

Key Information
Description: 
The objective set for Finland in the Climate and Energy Strategy of the Government entails halting and reversing growth in energy end use. Compared to the projected position that would arise if no new measures to improve energy efficiency were taken, the goal is to enhance final energy consumption by approximately 37 TWh, i.e. around 11%, by 2020. Correspondingly, the efficiency of electricity consumption must be enhanced by some 5 TWh, representing approximately 5%. The longer-term vision entails a further decrease in final energy consumption by 2050 of at least one third of the 2020 level.
