Ambition: Renewable Energy

eNordic aims to be a leader in the Nordic energy transformation by building a multi-billion sustainable energy platform


The world requires an energy transition of exceptional scope, depth and speed. Consumers are asking for it and developments in technology are starting to provide the answers - rapidly.

The Nordic region is one of the first advanced markets to see the sustainable energy transition on a large scale. Here the world can see it is possible and here new solutions for the transition compete for greater adaption.

This is why we have created eNordic: the first sustainable energy platform in the Nordics. We invest and consolidate opportunities in wind, biomass, hydro and district heating, and also in those traditional energy assets with the potential to be transformed or managed in a sustainable way.

Our mission is to enable the transformation of the Nordic energy sector by becoming the partner for those who develop or operate sustainable energy projects in the Nordics. We are the go-to local team for developing, M&A and managing the assets.

Portfolio: Nordic Infrastructure
