Helsinki Energy Company Helen to Go Climate Neutral
The City of Helsinki’s fully owned energy company Helen Ltd complements Helsinki’s plan to render the city carbon neutral by 2035 with its own plan to shift to climate-neutral energy production: today a producer of district heating, power and district cooling in combined processes largely based on coal and natural gas, Helen seeks to cut carbon dioxide emissions fully by 2050. Helen’s interim goal is to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 40% from 1990 to 2025. Helen has achieved a world-leader status in its combined cooling, heat and power processes, which feature a yield rate of 91.1% and have been recognized with several international awards. The company looks at an accomplishment of similar magnitude in transitioning from fossil fuels and centralized production to climate-neutral energy production.
