Energy Efficiency Agreements 2017-2025 in Finland


Published on

A new energy efficiency agreement period in Finland is scheduled over 2017-2025. Energy Efficiency Agreements are an important part of Finland’s energy and climate strategy and a primary tool to improve the efficient use of energy in Finland. A responsible and efficient use of energy reduces the carbon dioxide emissions causing climate change. Voluntary agreements are a tool, chosen together by the Government and industrial/municipal associations, to fulfill the EU energy efficiency obligations set for Finland. By ensuring that the agreement scheme is comprehensive and successful, Finland can continue to meet the obligations without resorting to separate new legislation or other new coercive measures. The Energy Efficiency Agreement period 2017–2025 is a continuance to the Energy Efficiency Agreement period 2008–2016.

Energy Efficiency Agreements 2017-2025 in Finland

  2. 2. Energy Efficiency Agreements 2017-2025  Comprehensive voluntary energy efficiency agreement scheme was initiated in Finland as early as in 1997  The agreement scheme has produced desired results  The new agreement period 2017–2025 ENERGY CONSERVATION AGREEMENTS 1997–2007 ENERGY EFFICIENCY AGREEMENTS 2008−2016 ENERGY EFFICIENCY AGREEMENTS 2017−2025 INDUSTRIES │ MUNICIPAL SECTOR│ PROPERTY SECTOR │ OIL-HEATED REAL ESTATES
  3. 3. Energy Efficiency Agreements 2017-2025 MUNICIPAL SECTOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY AGREEMENT PROPERTY SECTOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY AGREEMENT HÖYLÄ IV − OIL SECTOR ENERGY EFFICIENCY AGREEMENT DISTRIBUTION OF LIQUID HEATING FUELS Oil-heated real estates INDUSTRIES ENERGY EFFICIENCY AGREEMENT CITIES & MUNICIPALITIES & JOINT MUNICIPALITIES COMMERCIAL PROPERTIES HOUSING PROPERTIES ENERGY SECTOR Energy Production l Energy Services INDUSTRY Energy Intensive Industry l Food and Drink Industry l Chemical Industry Technology Industry l Wood Product Industry l Industry - General SERVICE SECTOR Commerce Sector l Hotel and Restaurant Sector l Motor Trades & Repairs l Services – General
  4. 4. AGREEMENT PERIOD │ AGREEMENT TERMS │ JOINING Energy Efficiency Agreements 2017–2025  As the main rule, joining the agreement applies to the energy use of the entire company/association  Joining the agreement spans the entire agreement period 2017–2025  If joining takes place before the end of 2018, withdrawal from the agreement is possible at the end of 2020, without possible sanctions relating to energy subsidies 1ST TERM 2017–2020 (4 YEARS) 2ND TERM 2021-2025 (5 YEARS) ENERGY EFFICIENCY AGREEMENT PERIOD 2017–2025 Implementation period 2014−2020 of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED)
  5. 5. Energy Efficiency Agreements, Finland's first choice in the implementation of the EED  Energy Efficiency Agreements represent the primary measure for Finland to fulfil the strict EU obligations on energy efficiency  Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) (2012/27/EU)  The goal of the Energy Efficiency Agreement results is to cover more than half of the binding national energy savings target set by the EED article 7 for the implementation period 2014−2020.  Voluntary agreements are an alternative to new national legislation or other new coercive means.  The nationally binding energy efficiency obligations can be implemented in Finland through voluntary measures, only if the agreement scheme is comprehensive and meets the set targets on improvement in energy efficiency.
  6. 6. Energy Efficiency Agreements  A central role in Finnish energy policy The primary means in the implementation of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive (EED)  Serve also to implement the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EBPD)  Facilitate the realization of the obligations set for renewable energy  Help to achieve the targets set as obligations for greenhouse gas emissions  Improve Finland’s security of supply and self-sufficiency on energy  Create green growth & markets for clean technology solutions  Exclude the detrimental effects caused by taxation or legislation on the competitive edge of companies  An alternative and supplementary aid for new legislation/coercive measures  Increase cost efficiency & and improve operational capabilities in municipalities and companies  Help to meet international climate- related obligations NATIONAL BENEFITS
  7. 7. BENEFITS FOR THE JOINING PARTICIPANT  Expedient energy use is responsible energy use  The climate load of operations will be reduced  Pruning unnecessary energy costs will improve profitability and operating profit  The agreement scheme will become a natural part of management systems  Energy subsidies granted by the Government can be utilized for energy efficiency improvements  Improving energy efficiency will turn into a useful mode of action  Builds and improves positive public image Energy Efficiency Agreement  A more flexible and sensible alternative for new national legislation or other coercive means
  8. 8.  A company becomes a participant in an energy efficiency agreement after the industrial federation/association** has verified the accession document* and the participant data as valid and a copy of these has been delivered to Motiva for entry into the participant register. 1) FILLING OUT and SUBMITTING the signed accession document* and participant data for the association** 2) INSPECTION of the accession document * and data in the association** 5) The company BECOMES A PARTICIPANT in the Energy Efficiency Agreement 3) Association* signs the accession document* and send s it to the company/municipality * In the municipal sector: Participant's energy efficiency agreement ** In the municipal sector: Energy Authority 4) Motiva enters the participant into the participant register JOINING THE AGREEMENT − INDUSTRIES │ PROPERTYAND BUILDING SECTOR │ MUNICIPALITIES Energy Efficiency Agreements 2017−2025
