Finnish energy consumption on average for the past 10 year stands at 376 TWh. Regarding the supply of energy, the role of forestland is currently increasing rapidly due to a growing number of wind turbines locating on forestlands.
Currrently, some 33% of the energy in Finland is supplied by forests. The bulk of the contribution is generated by wood fuels including small-scale combustion of wood, black liquor, and forest industry by-products whereas wind & solar on forestlands account for a smaller although a dynamically evolving share.
The ongoing revolution in the renewable energy sources driven by wind & solar is expected to expand the forest-based energy supply to over 40% of the total domestic energy market by 2030.
