Riding the wave of green energy

Jaa:

Matti Oksanen is motivated in his work by winning, generating new business and team development.

In the Biogas Business Unit I’m responsible for product management and new solutions. I develop our current products as well as new solutions for biogas production and use: at the moment we’re increasing our product portfolio and expanding the biogas plant network. The development of the filling station network is also my responsibility.

I have a degree in forestry and have worked in forest industry as well as energy business positions. Before joining Gasum, I was involved in renewable diesel projects. This means my interest in green energy solutions goes back a long time.

Biogas plays a major role in the achievement of the targets set by Finland’s National Energy and Climate Strategy and the creation of circular economy solutions. My most current objectives are to do with the use of biogas as a road vehicle fuel: all the opportunities are already there, but we’re still lagging behind countries such as Sweden. I believe the use of biogas will increase in the future as a fuel for cars as well as heavy-duty vehicles. To cater for this market, dozens of new filling stations will be opened in the coming years.
