Finland has the potential to significantly increase its wind power capacity. The wind power industry's goal is to reach at least 30 TWh of annual wind power production in Finland by 2030, which is approximately 30 per cent of Finland's current electricity consumption.
According to the Finnish Wind Energy Association, there are currently 32 wind turbines with a total capacity of 2,435 MW already under construction and a total of 240 projects with more than 18,500 MW onshore alone are in the planning stage (as of February 2021).
The Finnish government is also pushing ahead with the further expansion of wind energy. Sanna Marin, the state-owned company Metsähallitus 2020 was commissioned to offer more land for wind energy projects.
