According to a persistent myth, nuclear power is only suitable for stable production of “baseload” electricity. However, nuclear power can also be used for load following, meaning it can react and adapt power output according to demand.
Fennovoima's stakeholder magazine Fennonen is printed by Botnia Print in Kokkola, where sustainable development is both a fundamental value and a selling point.
Rauli Partanen, an energy analyst and author, has noticed that supporters of nuclear power always come to the fore when there is public discussion about the topic. Partanen has been talking and writing about climate and energy for years.
More and more Finns see nuclear power as a sensible and sustainable option for securing energy production in Finland. According to Jussi Lehto, the President and CEO of Voimaosakeyhtiö SF, these are also the main arguments for the Hanhikivi 1 project.
Finland needs more energy
The consumption or electricity is not about to decrease in Finland. Electricity provides us with light, heat, growth and welfare. Electricity must be produced so that it will not burden our climate.
