Abstract:
Finland has decided to phase out coal and cut oil use by a quarter by 2030. Relying on nuclear power and bioenergy mainly, the Finnish case suggests that traditional energy solutions may also provide a path towards carbon neutrality. Energy and climate policies should, however, properly address the long-term risks of these solutions.
