Effective collaboration with decision-makers and public authorities

Smooth and effective collaboration with decision-makers and public authorities helps us to streamline projects. As a member of various organisations, we are in active discussions with decision-makers in the sector.

Energy security requires the maintenance of a diverse range of energy generation activities. EPV Energy produces electricity in Finland in a diverse way using several different energy sources and production methods. This wide range of energy generation cannot be built or managed without effective collaboration with public authorities. Energy generation projects take a long time to complete. Municipal decision-makers and authorities play a crucial role in this process, from licencing processes to land-use planning and the assessment of environmental effects. Of course, communications with them continue throughout the life cycle of energy generation projects.

We are actively involved in various organisations within the sector

EPV Energy is involved in the activities of Finnish Energy, the Finnish Wind Power Association and the Bioenergy Association of Finland. By participating in the activities of key organisations in the energy sector, we are involved in public debate and are able to have an influence. By participating actively, we always stay up to date on the latest developments in the sector and the operating environment.

EPV prepares for electricity trading in accordance with the European regulations on electricity market integration

According to the European electricity market integration regulations, electricity trading is shifting from the current one-hour resolution to becoming faster. The 15-minute imbalance settlement period (ISP) will be adopted in the spring of 2023.

EPV’s experts are involved in several committees engaged in lobbying for the sector. EPV is:

  • Chair of Finnish Energy’s Electricity Market Committee and a member of Fingrid’s Electricity Market Committee,
  • member of the Nordic imbalance settlement service company eSett Oy’s Customer Committee and of Finnish Energy’s Electricity Measurement and Imbalance Settlement Working Group, acting as a balance responsible party in each and
  • member of the national NBM working group led by Fingrid under Finnish Energy’s mandate, representing the viewpoint of wind power operators in matters relating to energy trading.
