– We recently conducted a survey that confirmed what we already know; The Telemark region is an attractive area for the development of new and sustainable industry and business. The challenge is to make this known outside our region. That is precisely why Powered by Telemark is so important, says project manager Siri Alfsen.

Powered by Telemark is a project that brings together the business community and the public sector to make Telemark visible. The project highlights good examples from the region of green and future-oriented industry and business. – By conveying the good stories from our region, we want to inspire and influence companies to establish themselves here, says Alfsen. – The industrial cluster, Industrial Green Tech, is working to make the Telemark region the world’s first climate-positive industrial region. In addition, there is a bustling business community and the University of Southeast Norway has several locations in the region. The combination of expertise and close cooperation is one of the region’s largest strengths. In addition, a good geographical location in Norway, and in relation to Europe, is a big plus. – We, as a region, may not have made ourselves so noticeable before. This is what Powered by Telemark wants to do something about. There is so much good happening in this region during the day, Alfsen concludes.
