Revolution of sustainable energy in Finland 2009-2020

Julkaisu - tammikuu 27, 2009
A 2-page summary of the energy model created for Finland by Greenpeace. The model enables Finland to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by over 40% from current levels by 2020, relying on proven technologies and measures that can be implemented by Finnish public authorities. Significant ancillary benefits of the model include drastically reduced dependence on imported fuels and electricity as well as creation of thousands of jobs directly in the supply chain of the new, more localized energy system, and the potential for much more as the resulting know-how is capitalized on by export industries. Initially, strong government incentives are needed to kick-start the revolution, but up-front costs will be recovered by 2020 in the form of reduced outlays on generation capacity, fuels and emission credits.
