Summer project

Turn your knowledge into practice over eight weeks in a summer project with Europe's largest producer of renewable energy.

We offer an annual summer project – a rewarding and exciting challenge over eight weeks where you get the opportunity to work on current and important topics in renewable energy, decarbonisation and electrification. The project offers a steep learning curve and an opportunity to develop skills that will make you better equipped for working life.

How does it work?

Each year, we recruit six to eight candidates with different academic and cultural backgrounds from Norwegian and international educational institutions. With close follow-up from our mentors, the team works together for eight weeks. Towards the end of the period, the group presents the project's results to Group management and the rest of the organisation.

How do I apply?

The summer project 2020 was announced in February 2020, with deadline to apply in March. The next recruitment for the summer project will be early spring 2021. If you would like to be notified when the summer project is announced, you can register here or follow us on Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram for updates.

Summer project 2019

In the summer project of 2019, "Powering a Green India", the students were asked to develop business ideas that would make Statkraft a significant energy operator in India by 2025.

The key question was what would the energy market look like in India in 2025 and how should Statkraft prepare and be ready for this?

From 375 applicants we selected eight talented and motivated students from Germany, India, Italy and Norway. The students worked in an agile manner from both the headquarters in Oslo and Statkraft's offices in India. The students had varied academic backgrounds, such as engineering studies in renewable energy, industrial economics and technology management, as well as economics and administration.
