Power-to-X-to-Power hydrogen system
Hydrogen plays a significant role in the achievement of climate objectives. With renewable electricity, hydrogen can be produced completely emission-free. Because hydrogen can be stored, it will solve the storage problem of renewable electricity whose production is dependent on the weather. Together with other Vaasa-based organisations, EPV Energy intends to produce hydrogen from the wind and electricity from hydrogen.
Mega project for solar power
The economic competitiveness of solar power has improved over the last few years, and this trend is expected to continue. In 2020, EPV Energy started planning its first industrial-scale solar power project.
A pump storage station for Pyhäsalmi Mine
Pyhäsalmi Mine underground mining there will come to an end in 2022. One idea for the further utilisation of the mine is to use it as an energy reserve and pump storage station. EPV Energy joined this interesting project at the beginning of 2021 and decided to explore this storage solution further.
Wind power projects
EPV Energy is one of the leading operators in Finland in the industrial-scale generation of wind power. The company started its wind power programme as early as 2006.
Offshore wind power projects
Offshore wind power enables the production of renewable energy on a massive scale – up to thousands of megawatts of power and several terawatt hours per year.
Electricity storage and electric batteries
EPV panostaa sähkön varastointiin osana strategiaa. EPV Energy’s first electrical energy storage facility is being built in connection with the Teuva wind power plant.
Electrification of heat
EPV Energy is building new district heating battery and electric boiler in Seinäjoki. Besides this, a new electric boiler has been recently commissioned in Vaskiluoto, Vaasa. These investments will support EPV Energy’s New Electricity Revolution strategy excellently, as well as its mission to achieve zero-emission and flexible energy generation and consumption.
Storing heat and power
In 2020, the largest thermal energy storage (TES) facility in Finland was put into operation in Vaskiluoto, Vaasa. It will diversify the region’s thermal energy generation both now and in the future. The caverns used for thermal energy storage will act as an optimisation tool within EPV’s energy generation portfolio.
