Ambition: Accelerating the energy transition
eNordic aims to be a leader in the Nordic energy transition by building a multibillion sustainable energy platform
The world requires an energy transition of unprecedented scope, depth and speed. Consumer demand is increasing, corporations are cleaning their supply chains, and the fast technological developments starting to provide the solutions – rapidly.
The Nordic energy market is ahead of the curve in terms of the energy transition. The region’s well-functioning electricity market, strong grids and vast potential in cheap and clean energy is not only sufficient to cover the region’s current energy demand but also provides a competitive location for new industries.
This is why we have created eNordic: first sustainable energy platform in the Nordics. We invest and consolidate opportunities in the energy transition. In addition to “green assets”, we also invest in “transition assets”; those traditional energy assets with the potential to be transformed or managed in a sustainable way. We are an active owner, continuously developing the value creation potential and sustainability of our assets.
Our mission is to enable the transition of the Nordic energy sector by becoming the preferred partner for those who develop or operate sustainable energy projects in the Nordics. We are the go-to Nordic team for developing, M&A and managing the assets.
