Bright energy source of the future

Fortum has invested for several years in both research and production of solar power.  We have currently two solar power parks in India. 10 MW solar power plant in Madhya Pradesh spreads over about 70 acres and it is the first project to be commissioned under the Jawaharlal Nehru National Solar Mission (JNNSM) Phase II […]

Sustainable urban development

Smart energy housing at Stockholm Royal Seaport

Urbanisation is one of the global megatrends. It has been estimated that by 2020 more than half of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. This means, among other things, that services, such as schools, hospitals and even transportation, can be provided more efficiently for a larger number of people. This saves energy. […]

Biofuels

Forest residue taken into use

Biomass is a CO2-neutral way to produce electricity, heat and traffic fuels. Biomass is used a lot in the forested Nordic regions where the fuel is available cost-efficiently. Sweden’s biggest biofuelled combined heat and power (CHP) plant is being built in Värtan, Stockholm. When the plant is taken into use in 2016, CO2 emissions globally […]

Wave power

Inexhaustible energy source

The power of the sea is enormous and offers an inexhaustible energy source if we can learn to harness it effectively. We at Fortum have been working several years on development projects to find the best solutions to produce energy from the waves.  Wave power technologies are divided into different categories based on the principle […]
