With an impressive 28-year career in renewable energy, Fossum has broad experience from leadership positions at THEMA Consulting, Econ and EY/Arthur Andersen. He has specialized in financial and strategic advisory services in the power industry, with expertise ranging from valuations and due diligence to strategy and business development processes for both owners and company management.

In his new role at Akershus Energi, Espen Fossum will spearhead the company’s strategy, digitalization and energy trading initiatives, playing a pivotal part in executing the group’s long-term strategy towards 2035.

“I’ve had 14 fantastic years at Thema Consulting and now look forward to new challenges at Akershus Energi. It’s a company I know well with major long-term growth ambitions that I’m excited to contribute to realizing in my new position,” said Fossum.

In 2023, Akershus Energi launched its new vision “More Energy. More Future. More in Return” reflecting an overarching ambition to become climate and nature positive, as well as the aim to facilitate 3 TWh of new renewable energy by 2035 and develop local energy solutions for business customers in the region.

“Akershus Energi is in an exciting phase with significant opportunities for growth and innovation,” said Eskil Lunde Jensen, CEO of Akershus Energi. “With Fossum at the helm of our strategic initiatives, we’re better equipped to seize those opportunities. As Director of Strategy, Digitalization and Energy Trading, he will work closely with me to ensure our strategy aligns not only with internal goals but also factors in the external environment. This is essential for navigating and succeeding in an industry undergoing constant evolution.”
