Energikontor Väst is the regional energy agency of West Sweden and a part of Innovatum Science Park.
The agency leads and takes an active part in projects on a regional, national and European level.
The projects promote sustainable energy, renewables and energy efficiency in all sectors, in both technology and market development, as well as innovation management and regional coordination and support within sustainable energy and climate.
Innovatum Science Park, and thus the energy agency, has long experiences of European projects and cooperation.
The main target groups are the 49 municipalities (with about 1,7 million inhabitants), the regional authorities and the market actors.
We are also regional coordinator for initiatives within the areas of: biogas, solar energy, wind power, energy efficiency and electrification (grid, supply, storage, EV charging infrastructure…).
Being part of the regional structure of innovation intermediaries and Science Parks, the energy agency strives to interlink innovation actors and actions with the public and private sector to boost the transition towards a fossil-free and sustainable energy system.
Within the Science Park as well as the energy agency, we have a lot of regional contacts, cooperations and networks with both leading larger industries, SMEs, and the public sector. Together with partners within research and development we identify, initiate, and implement strategic actions to strengthen industrial development and sustainable development, for example within the energy and building sectors.
