Rogaland - an integral part of the Nordic battery region 

Norway, and particularly Rogaland, is positioning itself as a prime destination for battery businesses to thrive.

With an abundance of clean energy, raw materials, a world-class processing industry and unrivalled access to used EV batteries, Norway is the ideal place to develop battery production for a zero-emission transport sector. Norwegian industry already produces substantial amounts of precursor materials for batteries, chiefly aluminium, and silicon, in addition to refining nickel, cobalt, graphite and copper – and Norwegian industry is known for being clean, innovative and efficient. We have a lot, but there is room for more. 

The world’s cleanest battery production

Norway offers the unique opportunity to make batteries and precursor materials using exclusively renewable energy. Norwegian hydropower provides clean, stable, and affordable energy for factories all over the country, making it an ideal place to locate energy-intensive production of batteries and their precursor materials.

A rapidly growing battery eco-system

Plans for several substantial battery cells factories in Norway are already in the works.

Norway is developing into a hotspot for knowledge and infrastructure related to battery production. This makes Norway an important player in EU’s effort to build an independent, sustainable European battery value chain.

Electric mobility ecosystem

Norway has long been the definitive world leader in electric mobility, with the world’s highest proportion of EV vehicles. Norway’s electric revolution is not confined to the roads, either: Norway is also the home of groundbreaking technological developments in electric maritime transport. In turn, this has spurred the development of a vibrant ecosystem for electric mobility solutions – with Norwegian companies and industry clusters at the forefront when in areas such as electric transport infrastructure, autonomous vehicle systems, electric ferries and effective charging solutions for cars and maritime vessels. This provides fertile ground for developing, testing and scaling battery solutions for electric mobility.

Pioneering circular value chains

The EUs Green New Deal stipulates that battery production must be sustainable and circular. With record-breaking EV numbers, companies in Norway are in a unique position to develop, test and scale solutions for reusing and recycling batteries.

Rogaland has emerged as an exceptional destination for battery production and recycling

Rogaland benefits from an abundance of renewable energy sources, including hydropower and wind. This clean energy supply is a cornerstone for sustainable battery production, ensuring that the manufacturing process itself aligns with eco-friendly principles. In a world increasingly focused on reducing carbon footprints, Rogaland's access to green energy is a substantial advantage.

Rogaland also offers an efficient logistics and transportation network, including proximity to major ports, making it an ideal location for battery import and export. This strategic location streamlines supply chain operations, reducing costs and ensuring timely deliveries.

Furthermore, Norway as a whole prioritizes environmental sustainability and technological advancements. This commitment extends to battery recycling, offering opportunities for the circular economy and minimizing waste.

Abundant renewable energy

Rogaland enjoys a surplus of renewable energy sources, ensuring sustainable battery production.

Skilled workforce & research

The region houses a specialized workforce and top-notch research institutions dedicated to battery technology.

Strategic location

Rogaland's proximity to major ports and transportation networks streamlines logistics for battery businesses, facilitating efficient import and export.

Access to European markets

Norway's strategic location in Northern Europe provides easy access to the European market, which is a significant consumer of battery products and renewable energy solutions. Being located in Norway can facilitate trade and export opportunities to European Union (EU) member states.
