Renewable energy is key to building a sustainable future, and the green transition is one of the biggest changes of our time. On November 9th we organized a hybrid event Finland and the Renewable Energy Revolution, where top experts in the field discussed the many opportunities offered by renewable energy. Finland could have an internationally significant role in accelerating energy transition – but only if we don’t let the opportunity pass us by.
The event generated a lot of interest and gathered close to 300 attendees, some online and others on site at Sanomatalo, Helsinki. Thank you to all participants for your interest and active discussion on the topic!
