Abstract

According to the Finnish Government Institute for Economic Research, if the economy were to be equilibrated or, in other words, the debt problem be brought under control by the end of the 90`s, simultaneously pushing the unemployment rate down to about 10 %, the economy should resume a clearly rising trend over the next few years, and grow at an annual average rate of some 2 1/2 % on the long term. Export industries, particularly metal and forest, should be in the vanguard of this process. In such circumstances, the need for additional electricity capacity would be approximately 2000 MW in the year 2000, and about 3500 MW in 2005. Out of the capacity requirements to be faced around the next turn of decades, about 1200 MW could be suppliable through combined heat and power generation in cities and within manufacturing, to a limited extent with hydro power, and to a minor degree from wind energy. A good 1600 MW of the capacity required in 2005 would possibly be obtained from these sources. As a rule, the projects would be funded on commercial terms, i.e. without any significant public aid. The remainder, i.e. 800 MW in the year 2000 and  More>>

The remainder, i.e. 800 MW in the year 2000 and nearly 1900 MW in 2005, would have to be supplied by other means, mainly by using so called base-load power. Should nuclear power not be among the options, construction of further coal-fired capacity or - after the expire of the import agreements in the late 90`s - continued and increased electricity imports will, at least at first, be the option. Part of the additional electricity requirements can be supplied by increasing the peat- and wood-fuelled and wind-based generation capacity, with the volume depending on the funds with which the government would be ready to support these energy forms or to tax alternative options}
