The Nordic Battery Scene

The transport sector represents 25 % of Europe’s CO2 emissions and sustainable mobility is one of the key focuses of the European Green deal. We invite you to the coming webinar looking into the status of the battery ecosystem in Norway and Sweden.

Official hosts of the webinar are Innovation Norway, Eyde Cluster, Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise (NHO), Hydro, Sintef and Northvolt.

The transition from today’s fossil fuel based transport sector to electric mobility is a significant sustainable value creation opportunity for both Norway and Sweden. Swedish and Norwegian cooperation with support from our Nordic neighbours can deliver a full European value chain and the world’s greenest lithium ion batteries (LIB). In this webinar we will highlight initiatives related to the transition within the transport sector and also discuss challenges and show initiatives to facilitate the transition securing a strong and stable grid.
