The low operating costs of nuclear power make it ideal for the production of basic energy. (EK 2008) The Finnish commitment to nuclear energy is based in part on the fact that the country is part of the Nordic common electricity markets. 26 Introduction The Nordic countries have one of the highest proportions of electricityintensive industries, including a paper and pulp industry, a steel industry, ferro alloys and aluminium smelting plants. These industries have been able to expand because of relatively low electricity prices.

The Green League15 is something of an outside member of this subsystem, because they favour the use of wood as an energy source, but are concerned about the use of peat as an energy source because of the possible environmental damage. The other ideology of this coalition has been their anti-nuclear stance, which is in opposition to the nuclear power subsystem. The Finnish Social Democratic Party and particularly the National Coalition Party have been keen supporters of nuclear power. Their lack of interest in domestic energy sources is based on the fact that peat and wood are produced in rural areas, which is the power base of the Centre Party of Finland.

5 Mt. Meeting the emission limits seems to be a challenging task, because, for instance, between 2000 and 2002 CO2 emissions increased by almost 15 per cent. According to Lampinen (2005), in 2003 the figure of total GHGs was 86 Mt, which meant that it was more than 20 per cent higher than the total in the reference year. 19 According to the IEA, the most important factors behind this volatility are the climate and energy-intensive industry. The climate increases the cost of heating, but can also reduce the amount of hydroelectric power available in Finland (20 per cent of the country’s electricity) and, what is also crucial, the availability of inexpensive imported electricity from the other Nordic countries, primarily Norway.
