Do you want to be part of a growing city?
Skellefteå is currently investing more in its infrastructure, per inhabitant, than any other Swedish city, and is undergoing a major urban transformation. Large establishments such as the battery manufacturer Northvolt allow us to take advantage of the green energy produced by our rivers and wind farms. Add a climate-neutral wooden culture house and you will understand what a cool journey you could be a part of.
Several incoming business establishments, together with large investments, new residential areas, and a focus on sustainability make the future look bright for Skellefteå. Skellefteå is currently investing more in its infrastructure, per inhabitant, than any other Swedish city, with at least SEK 60 billion being invested in the private and public sectors. We are also seeing major investments along the entire Norrland coast.
One of the winners of the 2020sEverything points to Skellefteå becoming one of Sweden's foremost growth zones during the 2020s. The arrival of several businesses with a focus on sustainability, and an increasingly apparent trend where people understand the benefits of medium-sized cities, are just two of the reasons why Skellefteå's investment climate is the most favorable it's been in a hundred years.
Renewables access creates unique growth opportunitiesWith a robust electricity network, and almost unlimited access to renewable energy, the municipality attracts electricity-intensive industry and new industries. Christoffer Svanberg at Node Pole believes that Skellefteå is a completely unique place in Europe right now. This is the start of a whole new era.
Behind every success is an idea. And behind that idea is always one or more creators. Here in Skellefteå, we welcome creators and visionaries who generate ideas, both big and small, those dreamers who can realize their visions in our growing city.
What makes a simple life?
We have defined the simple life based on four different qualities we think characterize our way of life. Right now you are looking at one of them - but are you not just a little curious about the other qualities?
