Finnish energy consumption by sectorJanuary 9th, 2013
Finland used 1 117 PJ of energy in 2010, accounting for about a quarter of the energy used in the Nordic countries.
41% of energy is used in industry – a higher share than all other Nordic countries except Iceland. This is due to the important role of paper, pulp and other energy-intensive industries in the Finnish economy.
With the exception of Iceland, Finland has the highest energy consumption per capita of the Nordic countries. The country is however a world leader in industrial ecology and in biomass utilisation for energy.
