More about this expert:

As an energy specialist my main tasks are: - to enhance and promote the solutions of energy-efficiency, cleantech and renewable energy usage in enterprises, owners of real estates, housing cooperatives and farms, - to search and locate those counter parties that are prepared to develop their activities and businesses towards carbon-neutrality, - to analyze and assist those counter parties in order to find reasonable and profitable actions in energy and material efficiency as well as cleantech technologies, - to assist and search for financing opportunities in order to finance the needed actions, - to find ways for common purchases of equipment and systems in renewable energy. Central location for my work is western Uusimaa area of Finland (including Hanko, Inkoo, Lohja, Raasepori and Siuntio). Earlier - most of my working life - I have worked in former IVO and Fortum (for over 26 years) and my work portfolio consists of expertise in: - business development - project development and management - product and concept development - power plant management & techniques - strategic planning - business and market intelligence and experience in both local and international business environment with interaction and cultural skills. On the lobbying front I've been a Fortum representative in Working Groups of COGEN Europe (2011-14), Euroheat & Power (2010-12) and of Eurelectric (2011-13) in Brussels. During free time my interests are related to developing my personal welfare through fitness boxing and fitness gym training as well as other, more conventional sports hobbies. Music and other cultural activities in their various formats have been close to my heart all my life and I regard myself as a large-scale consumer of music (cds, dvds, spotify, jazz&rock clubs, stadium concerts, festivals etc.) covering blues, jazz and rock in all of their different genres and streams. Also movies, theaters and even opera are fulfilling the selection of my personal activities. Well, about my greatest challenge in my life so far...I have had a priviledge to adapt and educate myself into various challenging and interesting working positions as well as into several major experiences and learnings in personal life.
