The event is held in the growing Nordic energy cluster. The cluster has many active companies and actors working together with innovative projects such as the development of the Finnish batteries ecosystem, hi-tech products and new education programs for the industry. Meet the actors, driving forces and potential partners from Finland and all over the world! NES will take place in the Vaasa City Hall. At the heart of the event is the exhibition hall where exhibitors can showcase their activities and products. Participants have an opportunity to reserve conference rooms to hold meetings.
