We are delighted to welcome E.ON to the Cleantech Scandinavia member base. E.ON produces and delivers energy to the Nordic market in all forms to about 1 million customers. There are many exciting corporations ahead with E.ON so stay tuned to learn more.
With a base in Ludvika city, Sweden, and with partners such as ABB Power Grids, STRI-High Voltage Testing and Consulting, VB Energi and others, High Voltage Valley is the place to be if you are in Electric Power Engineering. As the cradle for High Voltage Power, HVV provides a great acceleration opportunity for cleantech companies and an interesting hunting ground for investors and developers.
Cleantech Scandinavia has since 2007 reported on investments into Nordic cleantech companies. We saw significant growth both in private investments and public funding up until 2010. After that investments, particularly made by VCs, have declined. Interestingly the number of investments has continued to go up, leaving a clear picture that it is the large VC investments that have left the stage.
We can also see a tendency that individual private investors are becoming more engaged, both in terms of business angels and family offices, but also in increased activity on alternative trading places, where more and more cleantech companies are established each year.
In an attempt to explain how the Nordic cleantech sector is actually developing we have written this first Nordic Cleantech Growth Report focusing on actual growth and profit/loss. Through this work we see a thriving sector and would not be surprised if the significant upturn that we saw in 2014 was the start of a new golden era for Nordic cleantech.
This report is exclusive for Cleantech Scandinavia members and can be found here.
