Energy intensive pulp and paper companies may participate in a five-year energy efficiency programme. Participation in the programme requires that the beneficiaries fulfill certain energy efficiency obligations. Penalty arrangements are stipulated in case the obligations are not fulfilled. Companies authorised for participation in the energy efficiency programme are granted a full exemption from the electricity tax for electricity used in the industrial production process during the programme period. The programme covers the period from 1 July 2004 until 30 June 2014, and consists of two five-year periods.
