Experience in the demo region of North Karelia (Finland)

Jan 20, 2014

Forestry and forest-based energy production and use are one of key sectors in North Karelia. This is not surprising, given that 81% of North Karelia´s land area is forested. Renewable energy constitutes approx. 63% of the primary energy consumption in North Karelia, and 81% of this is generated from wood biomass. North Karelia Climate and Energy programme went into effect in 2011. Programme targets are very ambitious (e.g. double the use of wood chips by 2020).
