The European Commission has published its massive package of legislation which is aimed at developing the energy markets of EU countries and reducing greenhouse emissions. From the Finnish perspective, the news came as a big relief. For example, the Commission proposes increasing the production of advanced biofuels and establishing sustainability criteria for biomass, which are in line with the strategy of the Finnish government. Minister of Economic Affairs Olli Rehn and Minister of Transport Anne Berner estimate the Commission’s proposal offers significant business potential for Finnish companies.
