Location

Skellefteå, located at the beautiful coast of Northern Sweden, is a place where creativity and innovative ideas are given room to develop. Growing up in an environment where good ideas are appreciated has prepared the ground for many successful entrepreneurs and internationally recognized companies, resulting in a mix of successful global leaders, high-tech expertise and cutting-edge technologies. The leading position in the field of renewable energy dates back to the early 1900s. At that time, the establishment of water power-plants signaled the take-off for the development of technologies and production methods which, over the years, have also come to include wind power and bioenergy. Judicious investments and close collaboration with cutting-edge research departments at universities have allowed the name of Skellefteå to stay synonymous with renewable energy development.
