Carpe GEM!

Transport is undergoing the greatest trans­formation in a century. Electric transport does not only involve electric cars and batteries. It also constitutes a change in the entire field of energy generation and infra­structure. It involves a variety of alternative power sources that utilise electricity: hydrogen, methane and synthetic fuels. The demand for electricity – and green electricity in particular – is increasing rapidly.

There is huge potential in the market for the green elect­ri­fication of transport. The Lahti region offers your business the best conditions to take advantage of this potential!
