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.
