Fingrid Jukka Ruusunen: Finland does not yet realize how far superior wind power is cost – the army of research concerns to be resolved soon

All have not yet awakened to the change of speed. Thus, said grid corresponding to fingrid's ceo Jukka Ruusunen .

He refers to the speed with which new wind power will rise in Finland.

the sleeping Beauty according to the new rule of thumb is that wind power will be built 1 000 mega watts in the front year. So the Loviisa nuclear power plant the electric power amount – every year.

also New is the fact that the projects are realized without the support of society for a few exceptions.

wind power rises, most of these in ten years, the nuclear power alongside the Finnish electricity production of the second support leg, which supports the water power adjustment of the force, he said.

wind power progression in the background is that the mood is clearly the earlier, cheaper to produce electricity. At the same time, the wholesale price of electricity has risen on the stock exchange.

in Addition, in Finland the wind a lot especially in the winter months, when electricity consumption is at it's highest.

get Rid of import dependence

the wind power rose is sleeping Beauty, according to the good news for the Finnish security of supply. He considers that not only the grid company ceo also supply the president of the council of the side.

– Finland has a wicked import dependent. We are forced to bet their own electricity production. The prospect of a ten year wind power is quite overwhelming price level, he said.

the sleeping Beauty underlines that Finland needs wind power also climate reasons. State power is, that the whole country is in 2035 carbon neutral.

This requires that transport fossil oil is replaced in a couple of years in dozens of electric cars or electricity produced by carbon-neutral fuels.

the Urban heating again is to move peat, coal and natural gas burning still more electric the giant heat pumps.

– If Finland wants to cleanse the energy system, then electricity consumption will significantly grow, Beauty remind.

wind power should do it, but its progression on the road is one big but.

fingrid's ceo Jukka Ruusunen says that Finland has not yet woken up fully to wind power the importance of electricity self-sufficiency.Markku Pitkänen / YleItäraja out of the game

the Finnish wind turbines are now focused on a strong Western Finland and Northern Ostrobothnia coastal regions as well as Southern Lapland. Instead of South, Southeast and Eastern Finland as well as eastern Nebraska humming because they were stupid.

the Key reason is that the armed Forces does not give permission to build the wind force near the eastern border. Wind turbines harm the airspace control to be used for research activities.

the general staff of the inspector of the Jussi Karhila said that wind turbines with rotating blades are formed to study and, for example, a plane between obstacles, which will mess up the findings.

in a crisis situation, enemy aircraft could sneak into the country to study I miss.

in the Picture is Finnish current already constructed wind turbines, with a total installed electrical power is slightly more than 2 100 megawatts. Released the market conditions, projects growth in the Finnish wind power capacity 56% 3 176 mw.Mikko Airikka / Yle

So far the Military has refused one thousand wind power plant construction. Karhila stresses that the military is not opposed to wind power.

– Action control law. We must be able to see the borders far enough in every direction that we see the threats, if any, will, Karhila said.

Karhila also point out that negative decisions are a clear minority. The armed forces has shown the green light to more than 8 000 wind power plant.

They only 700 have so far been built, Karhila said.

the Situation appears, however, that wind power companies are not always even willing to try with a stick of ice in eastern Finland.

the sleeping Beauty: the Situation to be resolved soon

Fingrid Jukka Ruusunen says that the energy independence, cut emissions, and air monitoring needs is to be able to combine.

He rush does the country's government urgently to find a solution, which is the Finnish line with the overall good.

the grid company's point of view it would be important to get the wind turbines to divide the current evenly across the country. Now the construction of power stations study concerns a little too far away from electricity consumers.

wind power should be happy to get also to the south and, for example, Eastern Finland would be a pretty great place. Then electrical wires are not needed would build so much. The north can, of course, to bring the electricity, but the balance would be a good thing, sleeping Beauty said.

explorer problems there is already a solution. In 2013, the Raahe wind power company to pay for the Military new research.

the So-called compensation under wind power company to pay compensation of eur 50 000 plants per always 18,5 million euro.

the general staff Karhila pointed out that the amount was sufficient to cover only the radar station, not the required infrastructure.

– total amount of the current cost level clearly higher than this, approximately 30-40 million range, he said.

Karhila stress that on top of come still staff costs research the use, maintenance and repairs.

so, Who paid the piper?

the research questions raised also last spring the government negotiations. Prime minister Antti Rinne (sd.) the government program is recorded in that report.

Energy affairs, the minister of economic affairs, and the center of president Katri Kulmuni told that the survey work is scheduled to begin in the new year. Ready should come no later than the summer of 2021.

Kulmuni underlines that Finland needs wind power to society, electrification in. In addition, in eastern Finland, many of the population loss suffering from the municipality would take gladly wind turbines property tax revenue.

– a Common interest and concern, certainly everyone has that how to obtain the renewable electricity, but so that it does not interfere with the motherland, to defend the needs, Kulmuni said.

Kulmunin according to the compensation law is a reason to visit again, because the situation has changed after 2013.

the Law rose recently surfaced, when the Future of Rural areas (switch to another service) told the East of Lapland the forthcoming billion-of the investment. The wind power company would be willing to pay for the Military new research, if he could get permission to build wind power Smoke whitewater rafting.

– the starting point is, of course, previously been it, that the electricity production costs. So I think it's still. In the report it is worth to go through the different options, Kulmuni comment.

defense minister Antti Kaikkonen (kesk.) answer Yle via email, that the defence administration should study is important.

If you end up being thinking of further study or new research solutions, it must, I think, be the state of a common interest, also in terms of costs. However, this requires accurate and comprehensive the settlement prior to making decisions, Kaikkonen write.

fingrid's ceo Jukka Ruusunen serves to urge the decision makers promptness.

– a Statement would give investors a certain kind of stability and vision for the future. This should not run into administrative matters. Did the place would be now, he decides.

the sleeping Beauty recalls that of the new study, the costs are minimal compared to wind power gains.
