‘Without nuclear we cannot be self-sufficient and carbon neutral’ “Nuclear energy has a key role to play in producing carbon-free energy and in achieving Finland’s carbon neutrality target by 2035,” Mika Lintilä said. The war in Ukraine means Finland must look for energy solutions – including nuclear – that are independent of Russian imports with small modular rectors one possible solution, economy minister Mika Lintilä said at the opening session of NuclearEurope2022 and the Nordic Nuclear Forum 2022 in Helsinki.

Mr Lintilä said Finland faces the challenge of achieving climate neutrality and “without nuclear energy in Europe, we cannot be carbon neutral and self-sufficient”.

“Nuclear energy has a key role to play in producing carbon-free energy and in achieving Finland’s carbon neutrality target by 2035,” he said.

“It is a question of continuing to operate existing nuclear power plants, as in the case of Fortum’s requests to continue operating units at Loviisa, or building new power plants.”
