Future of Energy – A Nordic View

Monday 8th October 2018

As a leader in renewable energy, what is the future view for the Nordics?

Future of Energy – A Nordic View

With the combined challenges of climate change, air pollution and energy security, the opportunities from renewables and electrification are top of many a national agenda. While many are talking about changes to come and making tentative steps, in some key regions major transitions are underway. Bold ambitions are being delivered. The Nordics is one such region and its success and perspectives on the future hold lessons for many others. 

Over past three years there have been over 200 Future Agenda workshops globally exploring many related issues – cities, transport, food, water, resources – bringing together multiple different experts to challenge and build 10 to 20 years future visions. Within this, we have run ten events specifically focused on the future of energy – covering a broad range of views from London, New York, Dubai and Shanghai to Brisbane, Wellington, Delhi and Bangkok. The most recent of these have been in Finland and Norway. The first was in Vaasa - a leading energy cluster in the Nordics – and was hosted by Merinova, Wasa Innovation Centre and the University of Applied Sciences VAMK. The second, in September, was in Stavanger - the energy centre of Norway and home of Equinor (formerly Statoil). This workshop was undertaken in partnership with ISPIM and NordicEdge. From all these discussions we have a considerable portfolio of global and regional expert views of how the energy transition may well play out. This new report shares the key insights from these discussions. Further national views will follow in due course.
