Time flies when you are having fun!

Our stay here at Statkraft is flying by at a speed that feels supersonic, and it is a bit hard to grasp the fact we’ve got less than two(!!) weeks left of the summer project. As we are now doing the finishing touches on calculations and modelling, as well as preparing for the final presentation,…

What I’ve learnt – halfway there.

After enjoying a week of summer vacation, we’re back and ready to tackle the last part: validating the EV-charging business ideas and creating a company management presentation. During the break, I reflected upon the internship and came to the realisation that never in my life have I learned so much as fast. Much of it…

The Future of Mobility

What’s the future of mobility, and what’s Statkraft’s role in this future? These are the questions we’ve been asking ourselves this week. We still don’t have the hoverboards we were promised in Back to The Future, nor do we have the flying cars from The Jetsons, but electric vehicles (EVs) made up 42% of new…

Oh, what a couple of first weeks!

Welcome to the (nearly) weekly blog about the Summer Project 2020! At the end of our 7 week period at Statkraft we will hopefully have developed feasible business cases for the EV Charging business, and we want to keep this blog updated on the progress. So here we go! This is our team, look how…

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 .”…
