The production of electricity in Finland amounted to 67.7 TWh in 2017, which was slightly less than in the year before. The amount of electricity produced with renewable energy sources grew by 1.1 TWh to the value of 30.7 TWh, which is 45 per cent of total electricity production. The production of district heat remained on level with the previous year, but the production of industrial heat grew by 0.8 per cent. The use of renewable energy sources grew clearly in the production of district and industrial heat. The use of fossil fuels decreased in the production of electricity and district heat by 12 per cent. The use of peat fell by around five per cent. These data derive from the statistics on the production of electricity and heat compiled by Statistics Finland.
