Feed-in-tariff for Finland

The "Law for Feed-in-Tariff for Wind Energy" is under preparation at the Finnish ministry of trade and industry. The law will be reviewed and voted on in September 2010 and is expected to come into force in January 2011. The proposed level of the tariff will be 83.5 €/MWh for 12 years. There is a bonus for those projects that will start producing energy during the first two years after the law comes into force. The level of the bonus tariff is 105.30 €/MWh for three years. After three years the project will receive the regular tariff level for nine years.

The target of the Finnish government is to have 6 TWh worth of wind energy installed by 2020. This means 2000 MW worth of installed capacity in near shore, offshore or onshore or 3000 MW worth of capacity inland.
