Electricity Supply and Demand

Total electricity consumption in 2016 (provisional data):
  • 85.1 TWh
  • 15.5 MWh / capita

Total electricity consumption in 2015:
  • 82.5 TWh
  • 15.0 MWh / capita

Consumption of electricity amounted to 85.1 TWh, up by around three per cent year-on-year. Domestic production of electricity excluding transmission losses was 66.1 TWh, which is nearly as much as one year ago. Most electricity was produced with nuclear power, which accounted for 34 per cent of the total.

Nearly as much electricity was produced in combined heat and power production as in the year before and its share of electricity production was the second highest, 31 per cent. Net imports of electricity to Finland amounted to 19.0 TWh in 2016, which was more than ever before. Compared to 2015, the growth was 16 per cent and its share of electricity consumed in Finland was 22 per cent.
