Swedish Renewable Energy Award

Norsk Hydro winner 2019!

The Swedish Renewable Energy Award was announced at the VIND Conference’s 10-year anniversary dinner in Stockholm on Wednesday evening. Tor-Ove Horstad, Senior Vice President and Head of Energy Commercial at Norsk Hydro received the statuette made from recycled glass by artist Jonas Torstensson.

…and the motivation reads

“Through long-term Power-Purchase Agreements (PPA), Norsk Hydro has enabled investments of around €13 million in Swedish wind power projects which will produce nearly 4 TWh per year combined. This is equivalent to the annual output of half a nuclear reactor and will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by around 2,4 million tonnes annually. The potential for a competitive and secure energy supply is great. Norsk Hydro has both identified and seized this opportunity, is leading by example, and challenging the Swedish heavy industry to follow suit”.
