Energiseminaret was first held in 2012 and the organization was officially founded in 2013. At that time the goal was to motivate and inspire energy-students and create networks between universities. Since then Energiseminaret has grown and developed.
The Energiseminaret logo was renewed and improved by Erlend Storaker from Storaker Design in 2014. The interaction between the organic and the technological parts of the development process of energy was emphasized. The blue-green colour represents renewable forms of energy and also Norway’s connection to hydropower.
The themes we have presented from 2015 to present day are «The Energy Nation Norway in Transition», «The Energy Race – With the Future as Our Goal” and “Power in Action”, with presenters like Marius Holm, Jørgen Randers, Rasmus Hansson, Kjell Børge Freiberg, Maren Esmark, Alf Bjørseth and Sigrid Hjørnegård, in addition to representatives from Statnett, Statoil, Norwea, Fosen Vind, Asplan Viak, IFE, Hydro, NVE, Ruter, Statkraft and Energigården – to mention some.
Energiseminaret is not only a place to learn and stay updated – it is also a place to get connections and new acquaintances. There will be students from all over Norway at the seminar, in addition to business representatives, high school students and people with different backgrounds, all of them sharing an interest for what happens in the world of energy.
Energiseminaret is the result of voluntary efforts of students at the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (NMBU). This year there are as many as 60 volunteers organizing the seminar! Energiseminaret has also experienced a large growth in the number of participants – there were 300 participants in 2017! We are hoping even more will come to learn, share experiences and bond in 2018. Therefore, we would like to invite not just students, but everyone with an interest for energy, climate and development to Energiseminaret 2018!
