Green energy

One of Trysil’s main areas within sustainability is green energy. Here you can read more about what this means, what is being done today and what goals we have for the coming years.


Green energy is about reducing emissions, using less energy, and switching to renewable energy sources.
Reducing climate emissions is crucial for Trysil to continue to be an attractive ski destination. Because in the long run, pollution will lead to less snow and shorter winters.

Tourism is one of the industries in the world that consumes the most energy. Energy consumption is an area where Trysil can have an enormous impact. Tourists use energy and water with a greater intensity than the locals. By investing in green energy, we can have a direct impact on this consumption.

What is being done today?

  • Norway's oldest district heating system (fjernvarmeanlegg) heats the entire city center in addition to the Welcome Center and Radisson Blu Resort Trysil.
  • Radisson Mountain Resort (Fageråsen) has heating through its own local heating system (pellet plant). The facility is dimensioned to be able to heat nearby cabins and apartments as well.

  • All electricity Skistar uses is "renewable". The ski resort has an energy-efficient snow production facility.

  • The snow groomers are driven "cheaper" than elsewhere, due to GP- measurement and increased awareness of efficient driving among the drivers. This significantly reduces fuel consumption.

  • Modern and eco-friendly ski buses transport ski guests around the mountains and the city center.

  • Ski in and ski out from the cabin areas to the ski slopes. The car can be parked during the whole stay.

  • Less cars parked reduces the need to use space for parking.

  • Investment is being made in LED lighting, solar cells and energy-efficient snow cannons, and technology and GPS control are being used to prepare ski slopes as eco-friendly and efficient as possible.

  • Many companies are eco-certified and have through this work taken a number of good environmental and efficiency initiatives.

  • Pilot project with autonomous buses is being planned.

  • Reuse of water in the river.

  • Trysil municipality prepares an energy and climate plan in 2021 where it is pointed out that a long-term development of green competitiveness is dependent on private companies seeing the opportunities that lie in the green shift.

Goals towards 2030:

  • Each company must run eco-friendly with as low energy consumption and climate emissions as possible and utilize the opportunities in renewable energy sources.

  • When purchasing and planning for new investments in companies, sustainable choices must always be considered.

  • Realize goals in Trysil municipality's Energy and Climate Plan.


We are dependent on the renewable revolution to save the climate, and as a tourist destination also in the future, Trysil is dependent on the right climate.

Reducing climate emissions is a win-win situation for Trysil. The development of more charging stations, arrangements for more green energy and cleaner air are appealing to both guests and cabin owners. It can also be crucial for the choice of travel destination.

Focus on green energy makes the destination more attractive, nature becomes cleaner, noise is reduced, we conserve natural resources and at the same time we use energy-saving sources.
