The Energy Park is located in Øygarden, outside Bergen. Here you will find Norway's best location for the establishment of climate-friendly industries. The area is centrally located along one of Norway's main sea routes.
About the Energy Park
A unique location in an industrial-friendly municipality, along one of the countrie's main sea routes. At the Energy Park we locally create climate solutions.
The Energy park is located in Øygarden, which is an industrial-friendly municipality in Vestland county. The area is about 45 minutes away from Bergen city center. The Energy Park is closely connected to Ågotnes, where the public port of Bergen is to be located.
At the Energy Park you will find establishments working to form the basis of achieving Norway's climate goals through sustainable business areas. The presence of Norway's future CCS plant at the site will allow industrial actors who develop CO2 to deposit this locally at the lowest possible carbon footprint. This will also be Norway's best location for large-scale hydrogen production based on natural gas with integrated capture of CO2.
Through the establishments of CCS and the hydrogen production plant, vast opportunities will emerge. Those in need of depositing CO2 or in demand for H2 or waste heat will benefit greatly by settling in our Energy Park.
