Kivineva is a permitting phase wind farm, located in Siikalatva, Finland.

Kivineva wind farm project is at permitting phase and located in the Northern Ostrobothnia, Finland in the municipality of Siikalatva. Tentatively, a maximum of wind farm with 28 wind turbines is planned for the area, along with about 100–300 MWp of solar power.

Kivineva wind farm is 100% owned by the funds managed by Taaleri Energia. Taaleri Energia is a Finnish renewable energy fund manager with one of the largest dedicated renewables investment teams in Europe. The team manages a 9.6 GW wind, solar and battery storage portfolio in Europe, the US, and the Middle East. The wind farm is being developed by Etha Wind, a leading Finnish project developer and wind energy expert.

Land Use Plan Initiative was accepted in the municipality in March 2023. The project development will continue with EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) and land use planning. EIA will be finished in the last quarter of2024 and land use plan draft will be simultaneously on public display. After this the project will proceed for land use plan proposal and approval, and land use plan is expected to be in legal force in the autumn 2025. In this case, the construction work of the wind farm and solar park can start during 2026, and the first power plants could start production in 2027.
