Building green batteries and battery materials requires the cooperation of the Nordic countries and the energy technology companies.
The Nordic countries have strongly advanced the development of a sustainable battery value chain in Europe. The aim of the webinar is to discuss the added value of sustainability for the actors in the battery value chain and how Nordic Energy Capital is involved in enabling a sustainable battery value chain.
Vaasa is known for its energy cluster and it is the most innovative region in Finland. Energy technology and global business are especially strong in our city.
