At the end of 2015 wind power capacity in Finland was 1005 MW, 387 wind turbines. Wind power production in 2015 was about 2.3 TWh which was 2.8 % of the Finnish electricity consumption*.
At the end of 2014 wind power capacity in Finland was 631 MW, 268 wind turbines. Wind power production in 2014 was about 1.1 TWh which was 1.3 % of the Finnish electricity consumption*.
(Capacity and number of turbines do not include those of small or used turbines that are not participating to statistics).

Failure statistics analysis
This Master thesis, written for VTT with funding from Tekes, contains an analysis of the wind turbine statistics. The wind turbine statistics in Finland comprise data on monthly production and downtime from grid connected turbines. Statistics of production have been compiled since 1992 and the failure statistics since 1996. The failure statistics between years 1996 and 2008 are examined and contains data from 72 wind turbines.
