The Government-funded project investigated the health effects of infrasound from wind turbines in Finland. According to the research results, the infrasound of wind turbines does not explain the symptoms associated with wind turbines. The study was performed as a multidisciplinary collaboration by the Technology Research Center VTT Oy, the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health, the University […]
FWPA actively informs about Finnish wind power, publishes related studies and publications, and produces and communicates wind power events. On this page you will also find current media hits, statements made by FWPA, and vacancies in the wind power industry.
The efficiency of wind turbines built in Finland has been growing in recent years, according to statistics collected by the Technology Research Center VTT. Last year, the capacity factor of Finnish wind turbines built in between 2011 and 2018 was 33 percent. However, last year the capacity factor of the best-producing wind farm rose to as much as […]
According to statistics from the Technology Research Center VTT, the average capacity factor of wind power plants built in Finland in 2011–2017 in 2018 was 32 per cent. According to statistics, wind power produces more in winter than in summer. Download statistics
Wind power investments bring benefits to Finland, e.g. in the form of jobs, turnover, value added and taxes. The report on employment and regional economic impacts of wind power examines the employment and regional economic impacts of wind power projects built in Finland during the entire current wind power capacity, ie approximately 2,000 MW, over […]
