Hydrogen plays a significant role in the achievement of climate objectives. With renewable electricity, hydrogen can be produced completely emission-free. Together with other Vaasa-based organisations, EPV Energy intends to produce hydrogen from the wind and electricity from hydrogen.
Pyhäsalmi Mine is more than 1,445 metres deep and located in the town of Pyhäjärvi. Underground mining there will come to an end in 2022. One plan 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.
The economic competitiveness of solar power has improved over the last few years, and this trend is expected to continue. In 2020, EPV started planning its first industrial-scale solar power project.
