Å Energi has five business areas; Hydropower, Renewable management, Grid, Customer and digital solutions as well as New industry.
The business areas are supported by the group functions; People and communication, Finance and business management, Technology, innovation and safety as well as Operations and sustainability.
Hydroelectric power is the cornerstone of our business. The Hydroelectric Power business area is responsible, through the company Å Energi Vannkraft, for operating our hydroelectric resources as efficiently as possible and developing our hydropower portfolio through new investments and growth in Norway and the Nordic region.
We have 73 wholly- and part-owned power stations, which generate 11.3 TWh of clean, renewable energy per year. That is equivalent to the energy consumption of over 700,000 average households.
Our goal is to increase our hydroelectric power generation in Norway and become the country’s third biggest producer of hydropower. We also aim to become Norway’s most efficient hydroelectric power company by introducing new technology and modernising our portfolio, as well as by growing our business in Norway and the Nordic region.
Health and safety is a key priority for the operation of our hydroelectric power stations, as is protecting the countryside and river environments.
