Wind energy statistics in Finland

At the end of 2013 wind power capacity in Finland was 447 MW, 209 wind turbines. Wind power production in 2013 was about 777GWh which was 0,9% of the Finnish electricity consumption*.

At the end of 2012 there were 257 MW, 151 wind turbines in Finland. Wind power production in 2012 was about 494 GWh which was 0.6 % of the Finnish electricity consumption*.


(Capacity and number of turbines do not include those of small or used turbines that are not participating to statistics).

Failure statistics analysis

This Master thesis, written for VTT with funding from Tekes, contains an analysis of the wind turbine statistics. The wind turbine statistics in Finland comprise data on monthly production and downtime from grid connected turbines. Statistics of production have been compiled since 1992 and the failure statistics since 1996. The failure statistics between years 1996 and 2008 are examined and contains data from 72 wind turbines.
