The Cleantech sector in Southern Sweden is dynamic and experiencing fast growth. With a highly competent and supportive infrastructure of education and industrial know-how, Skåne provides one of the most attractive business environments in the world for Cleantech start-ups and large-scale businesses. Skåne is also part of Green Valley, the world-leading region for Cleantech enterprises, which extends from Southern Sweden to Northern Germany.
Skåne’s Cleantech cluster already contains most of the key development areas, which are represented by promising companies and innovative technologies. These areas include Energy, Sustainable Healthcare, Waste, Water, Air, Transport and Agriculture. In several of them we already have regionally born world leading competence, sitting alongside established world leaders such as Vestas, E.ON and Enercon.
This competence has attracted global attention and further inward investment. The strong collaboration between the Cleantech cluster, the regional Universities, the public and private sectors is securing Skåne’s leading position in Cleantech. It is also inspiring innovations that help to significantly speed up time-to-market for companies within the cluster.
Primed for global success
Many of the companies have a unique technology base, and are well established both regionally and nationally. They are in a prime position to grow and become international, but because of the large home market they struggle to find the time to expand and go global. There is a strong need for new establishments, partners and venture capital to support their ground breaking work.
Our future is sustainable too!
Sweden and Skåne have a long history of environmental awareness and sustainable thinking. Skåne Regional Council is also setting up some challenging environmental objectives for the future such as by 2020, 100 % of heating will come from renewable sources and 100 % of all transportation will take place using renewable fuels.
