For 120 years Statkraft has developed and managed Norwegian hydropower resources. Over the past 25 years, the company has increased its international footprint, and is today Europe's largest producer of renewable energy.
The ambition to grow beyond the Norwegian borders has evolved gradually, one step at a time. Every point in the journey is covered in this book. From the early energy export in the 1990s to full-scale projects across three continents - the emergence of Statkraft as an increasingly international company has been inevitable.
Once an exclusively Norwegian business, Statkraft now has operations in more than 20 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America, and just over one-third of the companys 3700 or so employees work outside of Norway. «Beyond borders» tells the story of Statkrafts process of internationalisation from the time when the first plans to export electricity to the continent were made, around 1990, to the companys broader international operations today, 25 years later.
This book is also published in Norwegian, under the title «Mot nye horisonter».
