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.
