Our bioenergy plants

Renewable electricity & heat

We have long used residues from forestry and agriculture in many of our power plants. Now, our power plants use residues primarily in the form of straw, wood pellets and wood chips, saving millions of tonnes of carbon emissions per year. That is why we call them bioenergy plants.

Our eight central bioenergy power plants, produce electricity & district heating. There is also one heat plant and one peak load plant. All our bioenergy plants are constantly developed, maintained and modernised to produce power and heat as efficiently as possible and with the least amount of environmental impact.
