The climate change caused by greenhouse gas emissions is a significant challenge in both domestic and international energy markets. Fossil fuels continue to dominate global energy production, but the utilization of renewable energy sources has grown significantly in recent years.

In 2023, approximately 85% of electricity produced in Finland was emissions-free, with approximately 55% coming from renewable energy sources. The energy industry employs around 26,000 people in Finland, and its investments in various projects amounted to approximately 2.5 billion euros.

Talentor has extensive experience in the energy sector and a broad network of contacts among industry professionals. We are more than willing to serve as a recruitment partner for companies in the energy sector.

The majority of global energy production still relies on fossil fuels, with coal being the most common among them. In response to climate change, both in Finland and worldwide, there has been a growing focus on harnessing renewable energy sources. A notable commitment to combating climate change is the international agreement in 2015 to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius compared to pre-industrial times.

In 2023, approximately 85% of the electricity produced in Finland was emissions-free, with about 55% coming from renewable energy sources. Electricity consumption increased slightly compared to the previous year, but the growth was not as robust as the overall economic expansion. About 40% of district heating production in Finland was generated using various biofuels.

Finland’s energy system is transitioning toward a carbon-neutral future, but further changes are needed. Finland aims to achieve carbon neutrality by 2035, with a specific focus on electrifying transportation and modernizing heating systems.

Combatting climate change is one of the energy industry’s paramount objectives. Finnish energy companies are committed to the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement and are striving for a carbon-neutral energy system.

The energy industry employs around 26,000 people in Finland, playing a significant role in the national economy. It is also a major investor in the country, with energy industry investments reaching approximately 2.5 billion euros in 2023.

Talentor has extensive executive search experience in the energy sector and a broad network of contacts with industry experts. Our clients in Finland have included various entities, such as electricity-generating power plants, a large international company manufacturing medium and low voltage energy management and automation equipment, a major international company providing solutions related to energy storage and backup power, as well as several large and medium-sized companies offering electrical design services. We also serve companies operating in various electricity markets.
