Energy fuels the fire of economy. Technological industries use up a significant part of Finland’s energy. In order to minimise costs and to prevent climate change, it’s essential to pay constant attention to energy efficiency.

Technology industries use up about half of all of Finland’s energy. The main energy-dominated technology industries are metals industry, chemical industry, and forest industry, with 80­-90% of their produce exported. Approximately 40% of Finland’s energy consumption is tied to export. Finland produces steel for 30 million people and paper and wood products for 100 million people.
