Finland has the highest per capita energy consumption in the European Union. At the same time, the country has set the ambitious goal of producing 50 percent of its energy needs from renewable sources by 2030. To help meet this goal, Finland invests in a variety of alternate forms of energy, such as wind power, hydroelectric power, and now – horse manure power. Finnish utility Fortum has developed a circular renewable energy service, dubbed HorsePower, that uses recycled materials to provide a bedding management service for stable-owners, as well as energy. Wood by-products from Finland’s forest industry are first turned into horse bedding, which is delivered to stables. The company then collects the manure and used bedding from the stables and delivers it to Fortum’s power plant, where the waste is burned to generate heat and electricity.
