Abstract

The medium-term economic outlook for Finland is assessed to be relatively good. Export industries have been raising their output already for a couple of years, and in the industries typically supplying the domestic market, too, a revival is expected to take place. The growth of output in the export industries largely explains why the demand for electricity went on increasing still in the early 1990s, despite the recession. During the latter half of the nineties, the outlook for electricity demand will decisively depend on the extent to which industries are able to invest over the next two or three years. The outlook is also connected with the success in the market penetration of new, energy efficient appliances and technologies. Supposing that investments will realize as foreseen by the economic policy and economic forecasts and that other sectors soon follow the example of export industries, the consumption of electricity would have to rise from this year`s about 69 TWh to around 85 TWh in the year 2000 and perhaps to 96 TWh by the year 2005. Finland`s existing capacity combined with that under construction will not satisfy such increase in the demand. The additional capacity needed under the expected conditions of  More>>

Finland`s existing capacity combined with that under construction will not satisfy such increase in the demand. The additional capacity needed under the expected conditions of the year 2000, which call for decisions to compensate the termination of the electricity import contract in force, would be about 2000 MW in that year and rise, by the year 2005, to no less than 4000 MW. The new capacity is anyhow likely to be provided through a combination of new power plants burning fossile or indigenous fuels and of electricity imports. This means, among other things, that the level of CO{sub 2} emissions from power plants will rise markedly over the next ten years}
