Tokyo, Japan
In Gothenburg and western Sweden, two battery gigafactories will be built in the coming years. Meet us at Battery Japan to learn more about business opportunities in Gothenburg, Sweden, a European hotspot for electromobility, innovation and sustainable development.

Business Region Göteborg is exhibiting together with Business Sweden. We will be represented by Henrik Einarsson, our director of business establishment and investment services ( // +46 31 367 61 27). 

An engine for Swedish growth and innovation

Gothenburg is Sweden’s leading region for business R&D and the automotive and mobility capital of Scandinavia. It offers good opportunities for innovative businesses within the battery industry.

Two gigafactory projects underway

In Gothenburg, Northvolt and Volvo Cars, via the joint-venture company Novo Energy, are establishing a new 50 GWh battery manufacturing plant which will commence operations in 2025. The joint venture also includes an R&D centre in Gothenburg, which is already in operation. The aim is to develop and produce batteries for Volvo Cars and Polestar’s fully electric models.

In addition, the Volvo Group, which makes trucks, buses and construction equipment, is building a large-scale production plant for battery cells in Skaraborg, just outside of Gothenburg.

A hub for electrification

Gothenburg is a hotspot for electrification with progressive brands including Volvo, Volvo Cars, Polestar, Einride, Stena, Heart Aeropspace and Novo Energy having their HQ and/or R&D activities here. 

The region’s fast growting ecosystem features, for example, the Swedish Electric Transport Laboratory, a test centre for R&D in field of electromobilty, as well as one of Europe’s top technology universities, Chalmers.

Contact Henrik Einarsson to pre-book a meeting and learn more about business opportunities in Gothenburg, Sweden's second largest city.
