Finnish energy consumption by sector

January 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.
