Summer project

Statkraft is proud to offer the annual summer project which presents a rewarding and exciting challenge and a steep learning curve for the students. During this period you are given the opportunity to work on important topics that will enable you to approach future challenges within renewable energy. The team is supervised by a project manager and a group of experts.

The summer project is an initiative that Statkraft runs each year with 6-8 candidates from different theoretical and cultural backgrounds working intensively together as a team for a period of 8 weeks. The team receives close follow-up by Statkraft professionals and the outcome of the project is presented to corporate management and shared with the whole organization by the end of the period. 

The first summer project was executed in summer 2003, and since then, the project has been very popular among students at both Norwegian and international universities.  

We believe that this is a great opportunity to strengthen Statkraft’s position as an attractive employer as well as giving talents the opportunity to approach energy matters and work hard on complex global climate issues.

In 2018, nearly 300 applicants applied for the summer project within the two week deadline that was set. The project was entitled "Future Ways of Working" and 7 highly motivated students from Hong Kong, Germany and Norway were given the opportunity to work in a diverse team on this exciting project. Statkraft was also delighted by the diversity of the backgrounds that the students had, from organizational psychology, industrial and management engineering, sustainable architecture, economics, and innovation management. Statkraft had the pleasure of hosting two summer projects this year. The second was entitled "Setting the Climate Agenda", and five students with diverse backgrounds worked on the issue of encouraging society to take climate action over a period of five weeks, concluding with a presentation to corporate management and the rest of the organization.
