The Journey Ends

All good things come to an end, and so does this year’s summer project. It is surreal that 2 months have passed by so quickly, and even harder to realize that we now will split up and once again be in different parts of the world. It has been some intense last weeks, yet thrilling…

The journey continues

It’s incredible how fast time flies by when you’re working intensively, experiencing new cultures and trying to save the world, all at the same time. A lot has happened since our last update, and good gracious what a couple of weeks it has been! We started off with our first validation board in our third…

Full of exploration

It is hard to believe that the 2nd week of our Summer project in India has already passed by. This has been a week filled with new thoughts, challenges, progress and fun. On Monday we split our team into four task forces to mix up our working method and focus on several topics at once….

The Indian adventure has begun!

Namaste! Another week has flown by since we arrived in India last Monday, and it has been a week full of impressions, experiences and new learnings. We started off on Monday going straight from the airport to the Statkraft offices in New Delhi. There we were introduced to the employees and showed around the office…

Getting started – Powering a Green India

We just finished the first week of our summer project “Powering a Green India” – a truly exciting time. Over the next 8 weeks, we will develop new ideas on how Statkraft can become a key player in the Indian energy market, and how to prepare and get ready for this. Before starting the project last Wednesday, we were already eager to meet each other as we are a diverse team, both…

Goodbye, for now!

As I am writing this I can feel the butterflies in my stomach go crazy. Why, you wonder? Because today is the day before our final presentation of the project. The day is (almost) finally here where we get to present what we have been working on for the past seven weeks, which is super…

The Challenges and Opportunities of Diverse Teams

Diversity causes friction, which is a good thing! Diverse teams seem to be the new trend. Why is that? The challenges associated with gathering a group of people who differ along a range of variables can cause conflict, communication difficulties and many other challenges. “Diverse teams feel less comfortable, and that’s why they perform better .”…

What is the Climate Crew up to?

As a hydroelectric power producer, Statkraft’s commitment to providing clean energy is clear. However, the simple fact that the company plays an important role in mitigating climate change is less explicit. That’s where we come in. How should a company like Statkraft communicate about the climate issue and its own contribution to fighting it? To…

Paradise Island

As a student from Germany, who has never spent a long time in Norway, it was obvious to me that I would spend my week of vacation not in Oslo, but somewhere else to discover the nature of the country. Unfortunately, because we have been very busy the last weeks I didn’t have time to…

Meet the Climate Crew

So you have already been introduced to the Future Ways of Working team, but there is more! This year Statkraft has not one, but two summer projects. We are the ones working on Setting the Climate Agenda, a task where we look into climate change. Our goal is to find the best way for Statkraft…

A day at work – Future Ways of Working

We are now almost done with our third week here at Statkraft, and time is flying! As we have now settled in to somewhat of a routine here at the office, we thought we would share what a normal day at work looks like. Our morning meeting starts at 8:15. We set the agenda for…
