Promoting the Norwegian battery industry
Through Battery Norway, the collaboration platform, the Eyde Cluster wants to increase the knowledge about opportunities within material supply for Lithium-ion batteries. The goal is to contribute to the development of the battery value chain for batteries, build competency and infrastructure, as well as lifting the Norwegian battery industry on a global level.

Lars Petter Maltby, Head of the Eyde Innovation Center and CTO in Eyde Cluster, welcomes Hagal to the network:

– Hagal, representing the “second life” part of the battery value chain, is a valuable collaboration partner. Reuse of batteries and longer life cycles are critical to the environment.

It is exciting that a Norwegian company is in the vanguard of the battery technology race, he says
