Morrow’s ambition is to develop and manufacture the world’s most cost-effective and sustainable battery cells. The company’s vision is to enable and accelerate the green energy transition through the production of sustainable batteries.
Based in the southern parts of Norway, Morrow is currently in the process of establishing its 43 GWh Giga-factory which utilizes 100% renewable hydroelectric power to manufacture batteries with the lowest possible CO2 footprint.
The factory will be operational from Q4 2024. To accelerate development and qualify its products for key market segments, Morrow is building an industrialization center which support the company’s vision to create sustainable batteries.
With these facilities, Morrow and the company’s partners are establishing ‘the Battery coast’ – a sustainable eco system built around the battery value chain.
Morrow Batteries was founded in 2020 by strong and committed owners. The two leading investors are Agder Energi Venture, a wholly owned subsidiary of Agder Energi, and NOAH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Gjelsten Holding.
