EPV Energy Ltd (EPV) is a Finnish energy company that generates and acquires electricity and heat and supplies them for its shareholders, i.e. Finnish energy companies, at a production cost price. This is known as the Mankala principle and it enables shareholders to engage in extensive energy projects, while ensuring low production costs.

EPV Energy has almost 70 years of experience in responsible energy generation. We invest in emission-free and reliable energy generation with determination and purpose. At EPV Energy, we have greatly improved our range of energy generation, resulting in significant reductions in carbon dioxide emissions. We aim to achieve carbon-neutral electricity generation by 2030.

The company is a leader in emission-free energy generation, for example in utilising wind power and domestic forest energy. In line with EPV Energy’s strategy, we will also continue our purposeful work towards emission-free energy generation in the future.

Almost 70 years of experience in responsible energy generation

Founded in 1952, EPV Energy was first known as Etelä-Pohjanmaan Voima. The company’s roots are in Ostrobothnia, where the region’s electricity power plants opted to join forces as the demand for electricity grew. Over the decades, EPV Energy has expanded its operations to cover the whole country and, via an affiliated company, also into Sweden.
