Research and development collaboration with Statkraft

To secure a sustainable future for the renewable energy sector and stay updated on the latest knowledge, Statkraft is constantly considering collaborations with new and current research partners.

What do we collaborate on? 

Research and development, is an essential part of realising Statkraft’s strategy, and we are committed to making knowledge-based decisions as we grow towards 2030. To achieve this, we would like to collaborate on projects related to our strategic pillars:

The strategy is built on creating value along four strategic pillars:

1. Provide clean flexibility– leveraging hydropower

More flexibility solutions are needed in the future energy system, where Statkraft is well positioned with a unique hydropower portfolio and strong market expertise. Statkraft will optimise and expand our portfolio across prioritised markets, both in hydropower and selected additional clean flexibility technologies. In Norway, we will increase reinvestments and develop new capacity by upgrading and transforming suitable existing plants.

2. Accelerate solar, onshore and offshore wind, and battery storage

We will accelerate our growth in solar, onshore wind, and battery storage in our existing markets. Going forward, we aim to keep more ownership of wind and solar assets in Europe, as well as deliver competitive operations and maintenance at scale for own assets.

3. Deliver green market solutions to customers

Increasingly complex energy markets lead to strong demand for tailor-made solutions and favour players with a competitive edge in trading and market risk management. Statkraft will continue to pursue a market leading position in serving customer needs across the value chain with innovative and reliable solutions. We will optimise the value of own assets, grow our market solutions business for external customers, and strengthen our proprietary trading activities.

4. Develop new energy solutions

Decarbonisation leads to demand for several new technologies, representing substantial business opportunities.To build options for future growth, Statkraft will explore, build, and scale value-creating businesses in prioritised new energy solutions, aiming to own and operate or to spin off. Within green hydrogen, Statkraft aims to build a position as an industrial developer of green hydrogen.
