The goal for Oulun Energia is to be carbon-neutral in terms of its own energy production by the year 2035
Among the first Finnish energy companies, Oulun Energia has taken determined steps towards carbon neutrality for years now. The goal for Oulun Energia is to be carbon-neutral in terms of its own energy production by the year 2035.
To support sustainable development and to achieve carbon neutrality goals, Oulun Energia has started a partnership with EnerKey, the leading Nordic provider of sustainability and energy management SaaS solution. The cooperation guarantees Oulun Energia’s corporate customers better tools for reducing the carbon footprint of their business.
By the help of the Powered by EnerKey, sustainability and energy management services offered to Oulun Energia’s corporate customers can clearly highlight the environmental impacts of their own business operations. Therefore, enabling continuous efforts to reduce their environmental impacts. One of the biggest emitters of carbon dioxide is the form of energy used to heat buildings. The use of carbon-neutral district heating significantly reduces the size of a company’s carbon footprint.
“We produce carbon-neutral district heating with renewable energy sources nearby at Oulun Energia’s own powerplants. In addition, we utilize surplus heat from several sources,” explains Kimmo Alatulkkila, Director of Heat Services at Oulun Energia.
At Helen, we aim to provide our customers with the most powerful tools
Helen, an energy company, and EnerKey, an expert in energy management, have begun working together with the aim of providing Helen’s corporate customers with powerful tools for sustainable energy management. The first phase of the companies’ collaboration will begin with a pilot project intended to identify an energy reporting entity that will serve Helen’s corporate customers in the best possible way.
“Among our corporate customers, there is a growing need to monitor, report and meter energy consumption and environmental impacts with the help of data.
At Helen, we aim to provide our customers with the most powerful tools to enable them to do this. To gain a better understanding of customers’ needs and to analyse the best possible operating model, we have launched a pilot project with EnerKey,” says Jyrki Eurén, Helen’s Head of B2B Business.
Lumme Energia and EnerKey enter into cooperation – effective tools for sustainability and energy management
Energy management costs are one of the most significant cost items for a company but energy management can often feel hard to control.
“In many companies, the responsibilities related to energy management are handled by several people, offices and partners. Reporting and analysis can be burdensome as monitoring is done in many different applications and systems. Also, technology is evolving at an accelerating pace and for example strong weather phenomena can make electricity market prices fluctuate.
Furthermore, changes in legislation and the financial markets have a strong impact on companies’ business operations and cause a sense of uncontrollability,” states Janne Laine, Lumme Energia’s Business Area Director.
“Over the past few years, the need for sustainability has been increasingly recognized and today’s customers demand sustainability. In order to succeed in the market, companies need to know their customers and their overall needs better. With the Energiajohtaja service, our customers get areas related to energy procurement, energy efficiency, new technologies and reporting, that previously were separated, all in one place and with a single login.”
For Tampereen Sähkölaitos, sustainability means concrete actions

footprint. This pilot project gives us valuable information about our customers’ needs, based on which we can develop the best energy reporting solution in cooperation with our customers, such as Tampereen Tilapalvelut Oy,” says Suvi Kyllönen, Product Manager at Tampereen Sähkölaitos.

Eidsiva Energi: Sustainability is a global megatrend
“Innlandskraft AS (Eidsiva Energi / Gudbrandsdal Energi) was one of the first energy companies in Norway to offer energy solutions to private individuals.
We have been looking for a long time a partner to provide our corporate customers a sustainability and energy management tool.

Flexens: Correct political decision making requires data that is adequate, available and up to date
Together with Finnish project development company Flexens, EnerKey has implemented a novel pilot project for the Government of Åland to analyse and store energy data on a society level. The goal is to provide a user-friendly, transparent, and automated way to follow the green transition on Åland in real-time.
“Correct political decision making requires data that is adequate, available and up to date. The reason behind the project is that so far it has been difficult to find an overview of the ongoing energy transition. Collecting and analysing energy data from different stakeholders has been a time consuming and manual process.
As a result, it has been difficult to both access and update the data. Therefore we are looking forward to receive a highly automized tool to solve this problem and to improve our decision making process“, says Johnny Lindström, Head of Energy at Ålands Landskapsregering
