Langkaia 1, Oslo @ 29. November

Living Lab Økernbyen

Økern Centre is situated in the heart of Hovinbyen, one of Oslo’s newest and most ambitious city development areas. Hovinbyen has a potential growth of 30 - 40 000 new residents and will accommodate a total of 100 000 people in addition to its 2.5 million m2 area for industry and trade. Økern Centre will be the central hub of Hovinbyen.

From 2020, Steen & Strøm and Storebrand will create an urban, sustainable and innovative 163,000 m2 urban centre including an indoor aquapark, a cinema, housing facilities, cultural venues, offices, hotels and a leading commercial centre. With this living lab we invite companies, businesses and SMEs and partners in Northern Connection to help us develop Økern Centre with innovative clean-tech solutions.

How can hydrogen and fuel cells be relevant? We believe that companies and institutes have innovative ideas, but this could  be within zero emission construction machines, transport of goods and people to and from the construction sites, buiding infrastructure that may be used for regular transport users when the construction phase is finished, solutions for backup power and energy storage - and several other things.
