The way that developing countries meet their rapidly growing energy demand will be crucial for global efforts to curb climate change. Besides the obvious effect on the climate, cleaner energy’s reliable and affordable supply has an important social and economic impact. This is why renewable energy is one of Finnfund’s priority sectors. At the end of 2021, Finnfund’s energy portfolio, commitments and decisions stood at 201 million euros. The energy portfolio represents 20% of the total Finnfund portfolio and commitments.
We continuously invest in wind, solar, hydro and bioenergy, as well as energy efficiency and storage. We do not finance coal energy. The size of our projects varies, and they use a wide range of technologies and financing solutions. We also help to build partnerships with international financiers and technology suppliers.
In 2020, all Finnfund investments in energy generated 6,300 GWh. Read more here.
