On May 13th, Korkia organised a hybrid event “Unlocking Europe’s Green Future”. The event featured expert speeches on the future prospects of renewable energy and Finland’s role as part of a larger global green transition front.

Harnessing Finland as an exporter of clean energy could not only accelerate Europe’s green transition but also bring industrial investments, well-being and prosperity to Finland. Factors influencing investments in the green transition, electricity production capacity and electricity price formation – from the perspective of both investors and citizens – were also raised in the panel discussion.
