More and more consumers are wanting to monitor and manage their energy consumption. In recent years we have introduced several new products and services that help them improve the energy efficiency of their homes.
All of the electricity we sell to private customers in Finland and Sweden is renewable, carbon dioxide-free hydropower or wind power. The origin of the hydroelectricity and wind power is guaranteed with European Guarantees of Origin and additionally a part of the electricity with the pan-European EKOenergy label. In Sweden, customers can also choose which hydropower plant’s electricity they want to buy. If our Swedish customers prefer, they can also opt for electricity produced with wind and solar power or environmental labelled Bra Miljöval (“Good Environmental Choice”) electricity. Likewise in Norway, our customers have the opportunity to purchase carbon dioxide-free electricity produced exclusively with hydropower.
In Finland, we offer a Fortum Fiksu solution that helps our customers to optimise their heating. It calculates the number of needed heating hours and switches heating on automatically. As the Fortum Fiksu takes advantage of weather forecasts and hourly electricity prices, it automatically uses the cheapest hours of the day for heating.
An In-Home Display allows the customers to see the electricity consumption of their homes in real-time, easily and clearly. Increased awareness of household electricity consumption enables a more efficient use of electric devices – and that results in lower electricity bills.
We also offer our customers turn-key solutions for solar micro production for private and business use. Local, small-scale solar electricity production is an opportunity for independent energy production, and we buy the possible surplus production that is not used in the real estate.
