With some 130 hydro power plants in Sweden Fortum is not only one of the largest operators, it also gives us the opportunity to make our hydro contribute to a cleaner world. Even with some power plants a hundred years old, hydro power's contribution to the emerging fully renewable energy system is crucial. In order to balance its energy contribution to the system, the local environmental effects and the global environmental benefits, Fortum takes perspective based on the whole river system rather than individual plants.
Together with the municipality owned power company Skellefteå Kraft we co-own the largest arctic wind power park, Blaiken. Our second wind power park in Sweden, Solberg, is planned to be operational during 2018.
Fortum is also co-owner of the Swedish nuclear power plants Oskarshamn and Forsmark.
Co-owned with the City of Stockholm, the district heating company Stockholm Exergi does not only provide heat and cooling for the Stockholm region.

With solutions that redefine the sectors traditional business models, like Stockholm Data Parks, Stockholm Exergi sets world leading standards for energy recovery in a city, thus creating a solid foundation for circular economy based sustainable cities.
