A centre for education, training, R&D and operation & maintenance for renewable energy
About Energy Innovation
Energy Innovation AS is owned by the Managing Director and with Aria Asset Management as main shareholder, owned by the Norwegian Artemes Group who also own Caera, a nationwide supplier of professionals in electrical and mechanical engineering for the onshore and offshore industries.
Most offshore wind projects in Northern Europe will be based on bottom-fixed technology over the next 10-15 years, but floating offshore wind will also be important. By 2050, investments of more than 1,200 billion euros in offshore wind developments in Europe are estimated, and operation and maintenance to a value of approx. 300 billion euros. The EU's plan is for offshore wind to be their most important energy source by 2040.
There will be a great need for electrical and mechanical competence within the renewable energy development both on land and at sea. Electricians and automatics can be trained and retrained to become wind technicians through the education center which is already established in Egersund. Egersund Energy Hub and the collocation with the only wind technician education in Norway through Dalane Vocational College, provide a fantastic springboard for value creation for the export industry in Norway.
Energy Innovation was established in November 2016 as a privately-publicly owned company. In May 2021, Rogaland County Council sold out, and the other co-owners; SkyWind GmbH, Renewable Skills and Consultant GmbH and Espeland Gruppen, are now shareholders in Aria Asset Management together with the investment company Artemes Invest.
