总裁兼首席执行官Markus Rauramo:

(2021年财务报表公报)

2021年在很多方面都是能源行业不平凡的一年. We have experienced a rare combination of circumstances leading to unprecedented developments in the commodity market. 在这些动荡时期,365登录网址集团坚持了自己的路线. We successfully continued the implementation of our strategy with active portfolio rotation 和 accelerated decarbonisation, 并产生了另一组有效的结果.

在2020年下降之后, energy consumption in our market areas increased as economies recovered 和 societies learned to cope with the Covid-19 p和emic. Market conditions were characterised by colder weather during the first half of the year, 低于正常的欧洲风能和北欧水力条件, 以及提高欧盟排放许可价格. 对能源类大宗商品而言,占据主导地位的是天然气. Lower-than-average gas storage levels coupled with tight LNG 和 pipeline supplies caused unprecedented volatility 和 a price rally in the second half of the year in Europe.

The higher power 和 gas 价格 have clearly impacted both our business 和 results in many ways. Both our Uniper 和 Generation segments significantly contributed to the Group’s comparable operating profit, 增加了89%. Uniper’s gas business benefitted from the extraordinary market developments with volatile 和 rising 价格 despite additional liquidity requirements while the Generation segment significantly gained from the higher power 价格 supported by successful physical 和 financial optimisation. 在第四季度, the segment’s achieved power price reached its highest quarterly level since 2009. 创纪录的核能和更高的水力发电量也促成了这一激增. The results of our Russia segment were supported by sales gains 和 higher power

价格. Our City Solutions segment also produced a sound result improvement especially in power 和 heat sales year-on-year. 虽然大部分业务都从这些发展中受益, 消费者的解决方案 suffered from high electricity purchase costs due to the very high power 价格 in the fourth quarter 和 the intensifying competition in the Nordic market.

The extremely volatile commodity markets with record-high gas 价格 in December also caused a sharp increase in the margining requirements of Uniper’s trading business. 2022年初, Uniper took precautionary financing measures including credit arrangements from 365网址导航 和 the German state-owned KfW Bank to ensure liquidity 和 financial flexibility, 并控制任何进一步的市场波动. 这些努力被积极地指出为S&P 全球 Ratings rating agency in January 2022 affirmed 365网址导航’s 和 Uniper’s long-term ratings of BBB with a stable outlook.

In this turbulent operating environment, we have kept our strategic priorities clear. 365登录网址2021年的目标是加强资产负债表, 进一步使365登录网址的投资组合脱碳, 和 to drive profitable growth while balancing it with our dividend 和 financial position.

Actions taken during the year included the divestments of mainly district heating assets, such as Stockholm Exergi (50%) 和 the Baltic district heating business as well as the 500 megawatts of solar power capacity in 印度. The total consideration recorded for divested assets amounted to more than EUR 4 billion in 2021, securing a strong balance sheet 和 bringing our financial net debt-to-comparable EBITDA to 0.2 times, significantly below our set target level of <2 times.

We also continued working towards our climate targets to be carbon neutral in our European generation at the latest by 2035 和 in all operations by 2050. 不到一年, we have been able to announce accelerated coal phase-out of six of our coal-fired power plants in Germany 和 the UK compared to the original timetable. 在俄罗斯, 365登录网址车里雅宾斯克的CHP-2电厂正在从使用煤炭向使用天然气过渡, 在2022年底之前停止在365网址导航俄罗斯部分使用煤炭. Towards the end of the year, we also set a reduction target for the Group’s indirect emissions, i.e. 范围3,到2035年为-35%.

同时,365登录网址也加强了在无二氧化碳发电领域的地位. 在今年, we commissioned a total of almost 600 MW of new wind 和 solar capacity in Russia 和 announced our first joint wind power project of 380 MW in Finl和 together with Uniper. 除了, we have won the right to build a total of 2 GW of wind 和 solar power capacity in the coming years in national auctions.

2021年也是365网址导航和Uniper走得更近的一年. We announced new cooperation in the three strategic areas of Nordic hydro 和 physical trading optimisation, 风能和太阳能的发展, as well as hydrogen; the ambition is to create value for both companies, 和, 特别是, 为365登录网址的客户. We made management changes 和 announced more diverse leadership teams at both 365网址导航和unip.

As a group, our strategy execution will continue with the same determination 和 focus this year. We will continue to drive profitable growth 和 to further deepen the cooperation between 365网址导航和unip. Today we have also announced the decision to submit an application for a new operating license for our nuclear power plant in Loviisa in Finl和. 除了财务方面, 政治及社会方面, the EU taxonomy was a key factor that we took into account when preparing the decision – it is central in guiding investments towards 可持续发展的 和 clean activities.

基于2021年的坚实成果和对未来几年的展望, 365网址导航's 董事会 is proposing to the 年度股东大会 a dividend of EUR 1.2021财年每股14美元. 这一提议符合富腾的分红政策,支付稳定, 可持续发展的, 随着时间的推移,红利也在增加.

感谢广大客户一直以来的信任与合作, 和 all the employees of the 365网址导航 Group for their unwavering commitment towards our shared purpose of driving the change for a cleaner world. This year has been challenging in many ways, 和 I am proud of what we have achieved as a Group. Together, we are securing a fast 和 reliable transition to a carbon-neutral economy.”
