At Statkraft we are committed to the delivery of affordable renewable energy through the development of projects that are suitable and appropriate for the local area. Our vision is that our projects will not only deliver renewable energy to the national electricity grid but will also help local communities to become more sustainable.
Sustainable energy can be defined as meeting the needs of the present without compromising future generations.
The need to deliver a sustainable future is vital. We must address the issues of climate change and energy security. To do so, developing more secure and sustainable sources of renewable energy is essential.
Recent reports show the risks associated with securing energy from overseas, while the increasing cost of fossil fuel-based energy has been felt by households across the country. The answer to these issues is sitting on our doorstep and just waiting to be realised.
NISA can allow us to access our own source of secure, affordable, clean and sustainable energy.
Not only is this project developing a sustainable form of energy, the development of the project is also guided by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The sustainability of the project is strengthened by delivering climate action, by ensuring a responsible supply chain and by engaging in essential and meaningful stakeholder engagement with the local community and the resident fishing community.
