Guarantees of OriginFurther information
Origin of electricity in Finland
Mandated by European legislation, Guarantees of Origin (GoO) is a tracking system that ensures transparency and provides customers with valuable information about the origin of their renewable energy. The total breakdown of the origin of electricity sold by Fortum Heat and Power Oy in Finland during the previous calendar year (2022) and the total breakdown of the origin of electricity purchased by our customers under their electricity sales contracts are communicated below.
Residual Mix in Finland
The residual mix accounts for the electricity volume that has been consumed in Finland during a year deducted with the volumes of guarantees of origin issued for same period, the average specific carbon dioxide emissions and the amount of nuclear fuel used from electricity production according to the residual mix.
Unless the origin is verified and agreed between Fortum Power and Heat Oy and its customers (and such verification is done outside of this notification by the Guarantees of Origin), the residual mix in Finland is sold under the agreements. In 2022, the residual mix of sold electricity in Finland was as following:
- 11,68% renewable energy
- 18,20% nuclear power
- 70,12% fossil production
The average specific carbon dioxide emissions from the electricity production from the residual mix was 471,27 g/kWh, and the amount of spent nuclear fuel in the residual mix was 0,60 mg/kWh.
The amounts are based on the calculations by Energiavirasto (energiavirasto.fi).
