Welcome to Statkraft’s industry seminar the 24 March 2022
Statkraft warmly welcomes you to our customer seminar on the 24 March. The seminar will take place at our headquarters at Lilleaker, Oslo.
Power markets have never been more volatile. Russia is using gas reserves as leverage in the conflict with Ukraine, while China’s ever-increasing need for energy is exhausting the markets. A renewables boom has made solar and wind cheaper than ever, but nobody controls the weather. Closer to home, the Norwegian power prices are at an all-time high. This has led to unprecedented regulations, political stand-offs, and plummeting sentiment for interconnected power markets.
- How did we get here, and is this the perfect storm?
- How can industry stakeholders benefit from increasing sustainability requirements?
- What will be the key drivers in the power markets moving forward?
Join us at Statkraft's Industry Seminar to hear industry experts talk about geopolitical developments, price projections in the Nordics, power market analysis and the future role of renewables in the energy mix. Admission is free of charge and lunch will be provided. We look forward to welcoming you!
