In order to provide as accurate and useful information as possible, Finland concentrates its reporting efforts on the most essential and concrete policies and measures. Although this PAM serves / has served an important purpose, it is not considered one of them. Therefore the status of this PAM has been marked as “unknown”, and the description has not been updated. However, this PAM may still be in force and bring significant emissions reductions.

Motiva Oy organises and co-ordinates technology procurement competitions - on its account and through the European Union Technology Procurement SAVE Study and the IEA DSM Agreement. In 2001, the MotiVoittaja competition was finalised with the commercialisation of eight small house packs representing the highest level of energy efficiency. MotiVoittaja houses produce a saving of 40-50% in energy and water bills. Energy efficient devices are obtained for the Finnish market also by means of international acquisition competitions. The winner of the IEA Copier of the Future competition was brought onto the market in 2001. The EUs Green Light programme to enhance the energy efficiency of lighting piloted and modelled a basic lighting audit model in five companies and organisations. As an international pilot project within the IEA DSM Agreement Annex III, Motiva organised the IEA Hi-Motors Competition. The goals of the project are to: - Establish electric motors with losses of some 25-50% less than average motors, at a price and performance level which guarantees a significant long-lasting market share. - Establish highly efficient electric motors in the market (three-phase, four poles, 1 500 r/min., continuous use, most common motor type on the market). - Produce electric motors with an energy efficiency higher than in any previous motor and get them to the marketplace. With a buyer group of more than 30 Finnish industrial companies, the project has led to commercially available motors by ABB with extremely high energy efficiency - not seen in practice before.
