You will also become a part of our brand-new CEO-led Future Board – an advisory board made up of trainees and young professionals at Statkraft who will advise and challenge our CEO on key issues and topics.

Trainee in Hydrogen Business Development 
Location: Oslo 

As a trainee in hydrogen business development you will be an integral part of delivering the energy transition. 

Statkraft is committed to developing new businesses to enable the green shift, and one of the key activities in this area is to develop renewable hydrogen. We are aiming to be a significant player in the Nordic markets and have developed a substantial project portfolio which will be further developed to reach that target.  

The Hydrogen Team is responsible for growing Statkraft’s renewable hydrogen activities. Hydrogen will play a role within the hard to abate sector like heavy transport and industry, and our job is to develop hydrogen projects in these areas from the initial idea towards commissioning. To realize this, we need to work together with partners in the value chain, negotiate commercial agreements, acquire funding, and mature the projects technically. This also involves getting access to land, applying for permits and arranging grid access. Each project takes years and we must work hard to overcome technical, administrative, legal, and commercial hurdles, and make our projects well received by local communities and examples for best practice.  

The Hydrogen Team currently consists of 7 highly competent and passionate employees with diverse backgrounds, located in Oslo and Stockholm. The team is growing, and we are now looking for a dedicated trainee to further strengthen our team!  

As a Trainee, you will help the team originate and mature business opportunities within renewable hydrogen. You will help driving renewable hydrogen projects through internal decision processes and engage with both internal and external stakeholders.
