FREYR Battery, a developer of clean, next-generation battery cell production, is pleased to confirm that the company will welcome the Minister of Trade and Industry to launch the Norwegian Government’s National Battery Strategy at FREYR’s planned gigafactory location on June 29th in Mo i Rana, Norway.

FREYR’s Chief Executive Officer, Tom Einar Jensen, remarked, “We are exceptionally proud that the Norwegian Government has selected FREYR’s planned gigafactory site in Mo i Rana to make this historic announcement. We look forward to extending a warm welcome to the delegation from the Ministry of Trade and Industry, and we appreciate the Norwegian Government’s support as we advance our aspirations to establish FREYR as a global champion of clean battery production.”

The news release from the Norwegian government on the battery strategy, includes the following:

On Wednesday 29 June at 10.30 am CET, Minister of Trade and Industry Jan Christian Vestre will present Norway's first battery strategy at FREYR Battery in Mo i Rana.

Vestre will present 10 measures for how Norway will develop a coherent and profitable battery value chain, from sustainable mineral extraction to battery recycling. The goal is for Norway to be an attractive host country for profitable activity throughout the battery value chain and to attract large battery investments and gigafactories.

The need for batteries globally towards 2030 is increasing very rapidly, and Norway has good prospects of gaining market share along the entire battery value chain. The battery strategy is part of the government's green industrial boost that will help create new jobs throughout Norway, strengthen investments on the mainland, increase exports outside oil and gas by 50% by 2030 and cut 55% of greenhouse gas emissions by the same year.

The battery strategy is launched by a player who has come a long way with the ambition of establishing the first battery cell factory in Norway.
