A completely new ecosystem is being built in Skellefteå and it’s linked to one of Europe's largest industrial investments - Europe's first large-scale lithium-ion battery factory. The initiative presents both challenges and opportunities, where several societal stakeholders need to work together effectively to build a strong and viable business climate.

Skellefteå Science City works together with EIT InnoEnergy (The European Institute of Innovation and Technology) to create an industrial ecosystem for battery production in Europe.

The conference for a sustainable future!


The world needs new, smart and sustainable energy solutions for the future.

In 2021, for the second time, we will gather together important players from all over the world in Skellefteå to discuss and be inspired on new issues such as energy storage, electrification and smart energy solutions.

Energy ConFusion is arranged by North Sweden Cleantech.
