Most people know that fossil energy sources like oil and coal are bad for the environment. Did you know that they are highly inefficient, too?
Take coal: Around 60% of the energy it contains is lost when producing electricity. Such traditional fossil fuels will run out in the foreseeable future and they’re already uneconomical right now. That’s why we’re taking serious steps to help transform the energy system, both ecologically and economically. Renewables such as wind and hydropower and more efficient fossil energy solutions such as natural gas are not only good for the environment over the long term, but good for business today.
A particularly thorny problem has always been how to efficiently combine a variety of energy sources in a stable energy grid. Here, UPM Communication Papers is playing an important role. We’re responding to the challenge of the energy transition through a smart mix of renewable and efficient energy solutions – from water and wind to combined heat and power (CHP). By tapping into a wide range of energy sources, we’re helping to move society toward an energy system that reduces carbon emissions, while increasing grid stability and our business viability.
