Energy use in manufacturing went down by two per cent in 2014 from the year before, according to Statistics Finland.
 
The energy consumption totalled 521 petajoules (PJ). The total use of electricity in manufacturing decreased by one per cent.
 
Like last year, wood fuels were the most used source of energy in manufacturing. Their share in all fuels in manufacturing was 36 per cent, the data show.
 
Consumption of wood fuels grew by close on one per cent. The consumption of fossil fuels (oil, natural gas and coal) declined by five per cent from 2013.
 
The total use of electricity in manufacturing was almost 40 terawatt hours (TWh).
 
Nearly one-half (48%) of the electricity used by manufacturing was used in the forest industry as per the statistics.
 
The chemical industry (22%) and manufacture of metals (15%) are also considerable electricity users. The share of manufacturing in overall electricity consumption is around one-half.
 
The biggest heat consumers are the forestry and chemical industries that consume nearly two-thirds of purchased heat used in manufacturing.
 
The amount of heat obtained from outside decreased mainly due to structural changes.
