Saving energy together

Published on 30.11.2022

Electricity disruptions are forecast this winter, and the City of Helsinki is enacting several measures to safeguard energy. The main goal of these efforts is to reduce overall electricity consumption.

About a third of Finland’s electricity is used to heat buildings. Helsinki’s efforts to moderate its own energy use include reducing heating in city-owned buildings and dimming outdoor lighting. Helsinki has also joined the national energy saving campaign ‘Down a degree’, which encourages residents to lower room temperatures, take shorter showers and drive more slowly.

The City of Helsinki also offers free energy savings advice to people living in blocks of flats. Helsinki’s Energy Renaissance service can visit your housing company’s next meeting and help plan an energy renovation that could potentially halve your building’s heating costs. Requests for a visit can be submitted by the building’s residents or board.
