Statkraft has more than a 100 years experience with hydropower, and is the largest producer of electricity from hydro power in Europe. The majority of the Statkraft Group’s energy production is generated through hydropower.
Production takes place in 265 hydropower plants – 178 in Norway, 58 in Sweden, 10 in Germany, four in Finland, three in the United Kingdom, and 15 outside Europa. Statkraft is involved in other hydropower projects in the Nordic region and Southeast Europe. We are developing new production capacity in selected countries in South America and Asia through the company SN Power, in which Statkraft has a 60% shareholding.
Hydropower is renewable, clean, reliable, flexible and produces cheap energy for generation after generation.
