What is the connection between industrial jobs in a small village in Western Norway and Germany's green transition? And how can green partnerships with Germany and the EU practically drive the transformation for all three?
At this seminar, you will be presented with examples of green collaborations between Norway and Germany. Norwegian and German politicians and companies will discuss what it takes to turn the ideals of these new partnerships into reality.
Norway, Germany, and the EU share ambitious goals for greener industries and a renewable and secure energy system. The energy crisis has highlighted the need for strategic sovereignty in European energy supply and has emphasized the necessity to accelerate the production of renewable power to transform the industry. At the same time, stable and long-term access to low-carbon and environmentally friendly resources will be crucial prerequisites for the development of green sectors and industries.
Norway has enormous potential for clean energy production and green industrial development and can play a significant role in enabling Europe's green transition while ensuring local value creation and job opportunities.
We have entered into a green alliance with the EU, involving strategic cooperation on raw materials, batteries, and bilateral collaboration with Germany on hydrogen and CCS. Both frameworks are crucial for green industrial development in Norway.
