What does Near Energy stand for?

It stands for competitively priced electricity that has been produced locally for the nearby businesses. There are no expensive transfer fees. Near Energy might be wind or solar power – it is always as carbon neutral as possible. 

 

Why act now?

The EU wants to lower carbon emissions by at least 55 percent from the 1990 level by 2030. 

The national energy and climate strategy of Finland aims to increase the share of renewable energy to over 50 percent in the 2020s. 

The current Finnish government aims for carbon neutrality by 2035, and carbon negativity soon after that. The government wants to reduce the emissions faster by raising the share of wind power of the total energy production of Finland. 

The EU has granted Finland a stimulus package of 2.9 billion euros. A total of 822 million euros of this is aimed at achieving a green transition. In practice, this means environmentally friendly technologies such as wind, solar and hydrogen power.

Why a smart grid?

With a smart grid, you can sell the surplus energy to the national grid when it is windy. On the other hand, you can buy energy from the national grid when it is calm.
