Helsinki City Council decided today that Helen’s development programme is to be implemented with a model that will gradually increase the use of biofuels in heat production. The possibilities of new technologies and any changes in the customers’ energy use are also taken into account. For example, extensive utilisation of solar heat, geothermal heat and heat pumps will be investigated.
A third of the almost 3,000 solar panels of the Kivikko solar power plant will soon be sold. The panels have only been up for sale for a few days, and they have been much sought after.
Almost 3,000 solar panels will be built in the Helsinki district of Kivikko. These panels will fill an area of about one hectare on the roof of the Kivikko Ski Hall.
The foundation work on the pellet system in the Hanasaari power plant has started. A pellet system is being built at the power plant to replace part of the coal used with wood pellets.
Solar power production in Finland’s largest solar power plant started in the Helsinki district of Suvilahti in early March. A solar power plant in an urban environment enables production of clean energy close to where the energy is used. Helen’s plant will increase the total solar electricity output connected to Finland’s grid by over 10 per cent.
The Helen Group’s annual report has been published. The report describes year 2014 when Helsingin Energia was still the parent company of the Helen Group. The public utility was incorporated at the turn of the year, and it now operates as Helen Ltd in the form of a limited company.
Helsingin Energia’s innovation Urban living comfort and energy efficiency has won the customer deed and innovation competition organised by Finnish Energy Industries.
Helsingin Energia is launching a solar energy programme, starting with the building of a solar power plant in Suvilahti in Helsinki in the first phase of the programme.
The Uusimaa Centre for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment (ELY) has issued a statement on the environmental impact assessment of the investments pertaining to Helsingin Energia’s development programme. The planned investments would significantly increase the use of biofuels, and they are part of Helsingin Energia’s development programme towards a carbon-neutral future. The ELY Centre gave positive feedback on the extensively implemented environmental impact assessment and on
At Helsingin Energia’s Hanasaari power plant, particulate and gas emissions are measured with a method that has not previously been used anywhere else in the world. In the flue gas measurements, it is possible to watch the combustion products produced in the mixed combustion of biofuel and coal all the way from the power plant furnace to the atmosphere.
