France is a growing market for green solutions and has defined ambitious national climate plans, including a roadmap to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.
Team Norway France, consisting of the Norwegian Embassy, the French-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce, Innovation Norway (IN) and NORWEP, has identified clean energy as a priority area and has developed a shared strategy that defines offshore wind, hydrogen and CCSU as the most significant aspects of their joint energy work. Green mobility on land and at sea is also an important priority for Team Norway.
IN Paris has recently published a series of reports on green shipping and river transport, electric vehicles and smart charging, smart ports, offshore wind and hydrogen. As part of the research for these reports, IN Paris has been in contact with a range of French stakeholders, and there has been great interest on the French side to learn more about Norwegian policy models and to follow up with concrete business opportunities in these areas.
Team Norway France launched its Green Future Solutions webinar series in 2021, bringing together French and Norwegian experts and solution providers to discuss challenges and opportunities for growth.
In 2023, we are launching a new edition with the following webinars:
Synergies between Hydrogen & Offshore Wind – 13/04/2023
Batteries – Date TBC
The webinar is free of charge and open to all.
Each seminar consists of a 60 minutes webinar/debate, followed by a 60 minutes B2B session involving key French and Norwegian stakeholders.
We look forward to a year of exchanging knowledge and experience as we work together for the green future of France and Norway!
