Production of electricity with wind power and nuclear power increased in 2022release | Production of electricity and heat 2022
According to Statistics Finland, the production of electricity in Finland amounted to 69.1 TWh in 2022. Imports of electricity from Russia ceased in May 2022, and net imports of electricity fell by 30 per cent from the previous year. Concerns about the sufficiency and high price of electricity rose in Finland. This resulted in more economical use of electricity than usual as electricity consumption decreased by 6.2 per cent, which compensates for the drop in imports. Domestic production of emission-free electricity grew significantly in 2022: production of wind power increased by 41 per cent and production of nuclear power by seven per cent when Olkiluoto 3 nuclear power plant started production. The production of district heat fell by six per cent from the previous year.
