Why Statkraft?

Beginning with a Norwegian waterfall in the 1890s, we’ve built our business on providing clean, green energy that protects our environments and the communities we operate in. And we have stayed committed to that mission from the very start and never deviated – staying 100% renewable. Through harnessing more power from hydro, solar, wind, and biowaste, we’ve helped to lift societies out of poverty, provided thousands of jobs for people around the world, and given people access to the clean electricity they need to thrive. But there’s more work to be done – which is where you come in.
