Finland to auction five offshore wind power sites.

Finland will launch an auction for five offshore wind power sites with up to 500 turbines in Finland's public water areas. The total surface area of the five offshore wind power sites to be included in the auction procedure is about 860 km2 and their calculated maximum capacity is about 7,500 megawatts," the government said .Finland's state-owned management company in charge of land and water areas will handle the auctions and lease the sites located on Finland's western coastline to selected partners for up to 50 years, it said. The wind power from the sites to be auctioned is expected to increase Finland's annual electricity production by more than a third," Minister of Climate and the Environment Kai Mykkanen. https://www.reuters.com/business/energy/finland-auction-five-offshore-wind-power-sites-2023-11-23/

              It is great to see that Finland is taking steps towards renewable energy by auctioning off five offshore wind power sites. This move will not only help to reduce the country's carbon footprint but also create job opportunities in the renewable energy sector. It is important for more countries to follow Finland's lead and invest in clean energy sources to combat climate change.

                    Finland's ambitious plan to auction offshore wind power sites marks a significant leap towards renewable energy development. The scale of this initiative, with up to 500 turbines across 860 km², showcases a strong commitment to harnessing wind energy for sustainability. By involving state-owned management and leasing sites for extended periods, Finland is fostering long-term partnerships to drive green energy production. This strategic move not only emphasizes Finland's dedication to clean energy but also sets a substantial example for other nations looking to expand their renewable energy portfolios.
