|Energy Innovation AS is a joint stock company founded in 2016 by Egersund Energy Base AS. In 2016, an emission was performed and the share capital of Rogaland County Council was increased by 40 %, German BZEE GmbH 20 %, German SkyWind GmbH 20 % and Egersund Energy Base 20 %. Wind power is the focus area in the initial phase, based on extensive ongoing development and activity, both in the region of South-West Norway, and in the rest of the country. |
Energy Innovation has also worked on several initiatives related to potential development projects in both solar energy, bioenergy and energy efficiency. Energy Innovation’s business concept is the development and establishment of a centre for operation and maintenance, research and development and training in renewable energy, on- and offshore. The centre has been named Egersund Energy Hub, and is to be established at Langholmen in Egersund. Energy Innovation has three visions:
Egersund Energy Hub will be the leading HSE, training, research and development centre for wind technicians, both on- and offshore in the region.
Egersund Energy Hub will be Norway’s leading innovation centre in wind power, and potential also other forms of renewable energy and green technology.
Egersund Energy Hub will establish a strong cluster of collocated technology companies, organisations and public education sharing both facilities and competence.
HSE and training centre: Egersund Energy Hub will offer education through the public education system in cooperation with Dalane Uper Secondary School/ Rogaland County Council as well as courses and certification to the commercial wind power industry with BZEE and GWO certification. Innovation: Egersund Energy Hub will facilitate innovation and development projects. The centre will organize and run projects on behalf of others, initiate projects themselves and gather relevant companies and environments for cooperation. Figur 1 Energy Innovations business model In May 2018 we will install a 30 metre high, very well equipped wind windspecific training tower at Langholmen In Egersund harbour. We then start to offer wind specific training for the industry. Energy Innovation has two employees at the moment, but the owners also put in a considerable amount of work. Several people will be hired when the centre is up and going.
