Finland has excellences in highly educated population, developed high-tech industry and committed industrial organizations across the whole value chain committed to effective energy transition towards zero-carbon energy system.
Finland has a stable and predictable investment environment, collaborative culture, existing support infrastructure for nuclear energy installations, good level of interconnectivity, well-aligned national strategy and high social acceptability of nuclear energy.
Extensive sector coupling of power, heat, energy storage and conversion infrastructure networks opens a new stream of opportunities for nuclear energy installations.
