Energy Transition Norway (previously Norwegian Energy Solutions) is an energy transition cluster based in Stavanger, the energy capital of Norway. Our overarching purpose is to lead the transition to renewable energy solutions and low emission energy solutions.
Energy Transition Norway (ETN) comprises more than 130 members and partners. The members embrace a wide range of companies, such as operators, suppliers, start-ups, investors, research and academia, and authorities. The broad range of members covers the complete value chain for oil and gas and places the cluster in a unique position.
The cluster works on the transition for companies to succeed in new value chains. Collaboration across the segments and the member companies fosters an environment for innovation and technology developments. The core of the cluster’s activity is to initiate innovative industrial energy projects.
Energy Transition Norway is an arena for networking, technology transfer and collaboration. It provides the opportunity for members to present and discuss challenges and solutions outside their traditional network.
In the years 2015 - 2017 a process was initiated by Rogaland County Council, Innovation Norway, Stavanger Chamber of Commerce and the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise to establish a new technology cluster.
The industry was called upon to participate. The most central contributors in this early phase were Equinor, the University of Stavanger, Norske Shell, IRIS, Greater Stavanger and Validé.
Energy Transition Norway as established in 2018 as Norwegian Energy Solutions to further develop and restructure the oil and gas industry towards future-oriented and renewable energy solutions. In 2019, ETN was included in the Norwegian Innovation Clusters program as an Arena cluster. On 1 January 2022, ETN became an Arena Pro cluster.
