The Agder region has access to plentiful electricity generated from renewable energy sources, a robust and stable power grid and leading expertise at universities, Agder Energi and business clusters. That puts the region in a strong position to use its renewable energy as a foundation for creating value.
Electric Region Agder comprises Agder County Council, the chambers of commerce in Arendal and the Kristiansand region and over 50 enterprises.
From fossil fuels to renewable energy
Electric Region Agder will help to speed up the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy in the region, and it will attract enterprises that are big electricity users. The publication Elektriske Agder mot 2030 (Norwegian only) aims to showcase how some of our partners are working, thinking and helping to develop Agder into Norway’s first fully electric region.
Potential for electrification in Kristiansand
Thema Consulting Group has analysed the level of electrification in Kristiansand. This was done using an in-house model that can also be used for other municipalities and regions. The analysis showed that Kristiansand has great potential to become Norway’s first fully electric region.
