The Tampere Hall property has been using renewable energy since 1 November 2019. This makes us Finland’s first carbon-neutral conference and concert centre. Using renewable energy in buildings is a key element in the pursuit of a fossil-free society.
The energy is supplied by the Tampereen Sähkölaitos utility company. The considerable investments made by the Sähkölaitos Group in increasing the use of renewable sources in energy production have contributed to achieving carbon neutrality in the property. The energy supplied by Sähkölaitos is generated locally in Tampere and the surrounding region. In addition, Tampere Hall uses energy generated by its own solar power plants.
1990 Operation of Tampere Hall begins
1991 Awakening to heat consumption, adjustment of automatics and air condition

2011 Carbon footprint calculation model for congress hall operation
2012 Declaration of sustainable development alongside congress industry
2012 Local electricity from Tammerkoski rapids
2012-2019 Installation of roof sheets to neutralise nitrogen oxides

2014 Tampere Hall is the ﬁrst congress hall in the Nordics to receive Nordic Ecolabel
2015 District cooling from Näsijärvi lake
2017-2019 Implementation of Tampere Hall’s own solar power plant, led lights to the venues
2019 Local heat energy by whole tree chips, energy classiﬁcation of the property E->C
Achieving carbon neutrality was a significant milestone for us, but not a goal, so the work continues
2020 The trunk water line DC valve to improve water saving
2021 The expansion of the solar power plant is completed. Altogether 514 photovoltaic panels on the roof of the building
Buildings account for nearly 40 per cent of all energy consumed in Finland and generate more than 30 per cent of the emissions. Reducing emissions generated by the built-up environment is an essential factor in making Finland a carbon-neutral country. The city of Tampere aims to be carbon-neutral by 2030. This objective is supported by the city’s budget, which will include climate budgeting. Tampere will be the first municipality in Finland to implement this form of budgeting.
