Finns for fuel efficiency

By a big majority, the people of Finland prefer greater energy efficiency to the building of new power plants, according to a poll published on February 26.

Commissioned by Greenpeace and conducted in January, the survey found 61% in favour of greater efficiency in energy usage, 28% for reduced consumption and only 10% in favour of more power capacity.

Over 80% of those polled also thought that power producers' role should include education of energy consumers and promotion of energy efficiency.
