With more than a century of experience in renewable energy, Hydro is one of the top three operators of power production in Norway, and a significant market player in the Nordics and Brazil.
We are responsible for developing new business opportunities for Hydro within both renewable energy, hydrogen and batteries, and we provide support to the rest of Hydro’s business areas on contracts, security of supply and energy framework conditions.
Our ambition is to create a fair and circular society. We will do this by producing and sourcing responsibly, offering zero carbon aluminium, circular solutions and more renewable energy. We will be able to make near zero carbon aluminium in 2022 and will cut our global carbon emissions by 30% by 2030.
In February 2018 the region of Barcarena in northern Brazil suffered from flooding following two days of heavy rainfall. The areas flooded included Hydro’s Alunorte alumina refinery, which refines bauxite into alumina which is then used to produce aluminium.
