The cluster works on the transition for companies also to succeed in new value chains. Collaboration across the segments and the member companies will foster an environment for innovation and technology developments.

Norwegian Energy Solutions is an arena for networking, technology transfer and collaboration. It provides the opportunity for members to present and discuss challenges and solutions outside their traditional network. The collaborate approach will merge the right parties for the respective projects.
