Fuel Cell Today: Country Report Finland Published

14 Mar 2012

Spinverse and the Tekes Fuel Programme assisted Fuel Cell Today to compile a comprehensive report on Fuel Cell opportunities.

This report, the first in Fuel Cell Today’s series of five reports on the Nordic countries, gives a brief overview of the energy context in Finland and examines where fuel cells might fit within this. It then describes the current fuel cell R&D activities in the country and the commercial products for both the domestic and international markets that we expect to arise from this.

Finland’s particular strength is in the use of wood-based biomass for energy. Over a fifth of its primary energy consumption is met by bioenergy, one of the highest proportions among the OECD member countries, and it has the highest share of biomass in electricity generation in the world. Much of this is used in highly efficient combined heat and power generation (CHP), in which the country is also a world leader.
