Hydropower

Hydropower is an environmental friendly and renewable energy source. 99% of all power production in Norway comes from hydropower. On a global basis 1/6 of the power produced comes from hydropower.

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 373 hydropower plants – 263 in Norway, 60 in Sweden, 10 in Germany, three in the United Kingdom, and 32 outside Europea. 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 alone and 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.
