Hydro REIN

Hydro REIN offers renewable energy solutions for more sustainable industries.

Our goal is to help our clients succeed with the energy transition. We facilitate access to affordable renewable power, sourced from our portfolio of hydro, solar and wind projects in Brazil and the Nordics. We also provide industrial scale solutions to improve energy efficiency, reduce emissions and cut costs.

The transition from fossil to renewable-based energy systems plays an important role in tackling climate change. We have the legacy and capabilities to help industries getting access to affordable, cleaner energy in a responsible and sustainable way, helping them optimize their power consumption and reduce their footprint" Olivier Girardot, Head of Hydro REIN

Our business model is based on agility and the ability to leverage Hydro’s 100+ years of renewable energy and industrial development. Our diverse team has the expertise and the resolve to develop projects, services and solutions that make a difference for our clients and the societies they are part of.

We are building a highly skilled team that puts values first. Our team cultivates inclusion, innovation and different approaches to problem solving. We share an entrepreneurial spirit, uncompromising integrity, and a “can do” attitude.

Batteries

Hydro is establishing a Batteries business unit to develop our position in the fast-growing battery sector.

Battery

The Battery business unit will actively develop current assets and projects in the battery sector and explore new opportunities for Hydro in the battery value chain. Our energy team has engaged in several ventures within battery and energy storage in recent years. Our minority share in the global leader within marine batteries, Corvus Energy, has been a success so far with establishment of automated manufacturing in Bergen. We have also taken a small share in the Swedish integrated battery start-up Northvolt, and our battery recycling joint venture Hydro Volt was recently announced.  

The battery sector is expected to grow very fast globally and in Europe, mainly on the back of the ongoing automotive industry transformation from fossil fuel to electrical vehicles. There is a demand for a European sustainable battery value chain, and Hydro and Norway is well placed to take significant positions in this sector. The next steps to realize this potential are to establish a dedicated team that will systematically build competence through hiring of experts, and actively develop and expand Hydro’s battery footprint.  

We aim to explore new growth in areas where our capabilities match the global megatrends, says Hilde Merete Aasheim, CEO & President.

Energy

With more than 100 years of experience in hydropower, Hydro is one of the top three largest operators of power production in Norway.

Satisfied Hydro Energy Employee

We have substantial, self-generated power capacity to support our production of primary metal and are engaged in several initiatives to secure competitive power supplies for our aluminium operations.

Hydro Energy’s unit plays a vital role in this and consists of a highly competent cross-disciplinary team.
