Wind power in Finland – Opportunities and threats

In this seminar we look at the possibilities of wind energy from both onshore and offshore perspectives. The topics include the expansion of onshore wind energy through political and legislative changes, the promising future of coastal Finland’s offshore wind energy as well as managing offshore environmental and social impacts.
