#0167: Total Energy Efficiency

Gjest: Frode Hvattum

Chief of Strategy og styreleder

Ruter og WWF

Med Vert Silvija Seres

A discussion on how climate challenges affect the world's wildlife, this episode of #LØRN sees Silvija interact with Chief of Strategy at Ruter and chairman of The World Wide Fund for Nature, Frode Hvattum, on how we can deliver on sustainability and economic growth at the same time. They discuss how we can drive total energy efficiency by moving towards circular business models in mobility, including how WWF works to preserve natural values. Frodes passion is to drive positive change to society, focusing on mobility and environment

What are you doing at work?

Leveraging public procurement to accelerate electrification and searching for a way to steer public transportation on the societal value we create. Also, building a bridge between political visions and commercial investment in mobility and leveraging digital innovation to drive sustainable value.

What are the most important concepts in energy technology?

Electrification and the transition to a system change, and total energy efficiency through driving toward circular business models in mobility.

Why is it exciting?

Because the commercial business case is huge. The improvements we can do for the users of mobility is great and will be an important impact on reducing climate change and create a better world for the future.

What do you think are the most interesting controversies?

If we can deliver on sustainability and economic growth at the same time, if we can we transform ourselves to leverage the full potential of the circular economy, and if we find a way to understand the holistic consequence of our choices and make better decisions.

Your own favourite projects in energy technology?

Sustainability driven customer centric mobility platform. It reduced total energy use by reducing the number of produced vehicles and increasing the use of each vehicles while increasing the user experience.

Your other favourite examples of energy technology internationally and nationally?

Otovo’s way of scale usage of solar panels on roofs of private households.

How do you usually explain energy technology?

For me as an economist, its digital or physical technology that helps produce, distribute and use energy to serve a purpose for an individual, an organisation or the society as a whole.

What do we do particularly well in Norway of this?

We are superusers of self-servicing digital services, big on hydropower and electric vehicles, and we are strong on circular economies in certain areas like waste.

A favourite energy technology quote?

If technology is the answer, what is the question?

Most important takeaway from our conversation?

Circular economy is the new big challenge and opportunity, the potential is huge, but we must think differently and collaborate more and smarter.

Den store kampen nå handler om klimautfordringene og dyrene som dør ut på grunn av den. Hvert år dør to prosent av artene og hvis disse artene dør ut, så dør også deler av økosystemet — økosystemet som vi også er en del av.
