Why Norway’s Renewable Energy Boom is Happening Everywhere But Here (English)

  • Organized by: Kyoto Group AS
  • Date & Time: Tuesday, August 13, 2024, 15:30 - 16:30
  • Location: Smalsund
  • Overview: Despite being a hub for renewable energy innovations, Norway’s green tech companies are flourishing primarily abroad. Why is domestic growth stagnant? With guest speakers like Siren Sundby, from Capgemini, this panel will unravel the paradox of Norway’s clean tech sector thriving globally while facing hurdles at home. Explore the constraints imposed by current regulations and discuss the necessary overhaul of Norway’s energy systems to support and accelerate local industry decarbonization.
