The production of electricity in Finland amounted to 67.5 TWh in 2018, which was 2.5 TWh more than in the year before. The amount of electricity produced with renewable energy sources and nuclear energy only increased slightly, but 1.7 TWh more electricity than in 2017 was produced with fossil fuels and peat. Now 46.2 per cent of electricity was produced with renewable energy sources while in 2017, the share was 47.2 per cent. The production of district heat increased slightly (0.5%) but the production of industrial heat grew by as much as 3.2 per cent. The use of fossil fuels in the production of district and industrial heat remained almost unchanged, but the use of peat increased by seven per cent and that of renewable energy sources by 2.1 per cent. In all, 53 per cent of district heat was produced with fossil fuels and peat, but in industrial heat the share of renewables was 75 per cent. These data derive from the statistics on the production of electricity and heat compiled by Statistics Finland.
