Smart ports and technological development




France and Norway are growing markets when it comes to green solutions and have outlined very ambitious national climate plans including a roadmap to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050.

Team Norway France has clean energy as a priority area and has developed a joint energy strategy that defines offshore wind, hydrogen and CCSU as the most important aspects of their joint energy work. Green mobility on land and at sea are also important priorities for Team Norway France.

Team Norway France includes the Norwegian Embassy in Paris, Innovation Norway (France), the French-Norwegian Chamber of Commerce and Norwegian Energy Partners.

Innovation Norway (France) has recently published a series of reports on green maritime and river transport, electric vehicles and smart charging, smart ports, and offshore wind. It appears that a wide range of French stakeholders are willing to learn more about Norwegian policy models and to follow up with concrete business opportunities.

Team Norway France therefore launches its Green Future Solutions webinar series, bringing French and Norwegian experts and solution providers together to discuss common challenges. Each webinar will consist of a 45-minute webinar/panel debate, followed by one hour of B2B involving central French and Norwegian stakeholders.

The theme for the webinar on May 27 is smart ports and technological development.
