The EnergyVaasa network is again on the hunt for a new Energy Ambassador. The person chosen for the Energy Ambassador position will work for leading cleantech companies exporting their products and solutions all over the world. During September-October 2013 the Energy Ambassador will travel to ten countries to see how Finnish cleantech companies work with global energy solutions.

The Energy Ambassador’s mission is to travel to destinations chosen by the employing companies and share his/her experiences through a blog, a video blog and social media. Through these channels the public have a great opportunity to find out what effects the solutions have on the environment and even on the lives of people living in the target countries. The position offers an outstanding opportunity to look into international energy technology companies and to network with global top organizations. The application period ends May 5th 2013.

Last year the Vaasa region hired, together with the regions’ energy technology companies, an Energy Ambassador, who exceeded all expectations in his task to communicate about the region´s energy cluster. Today the knowledge of the region’s role as the Nordic leader in energy technology is widely spread. However, only a few recognize EnergyVaasa’s role as one of the most important drivers of the Finnish exports. That is why EnergyVaasa is again looking for an Energy Ambassador. After all, countries like Finland cannot manage without exports, and this is why EnergyVaasa is so important.

The companies that are involved in the Energy Ambassador campaign export up to 98,8 % of their products and solutions. EnergyVaasa stands for 12 % of the Finnish technology exports and 30 % of the Finnish energy technology exports. The demand for energy solutions is growing all over the world and Finnish companies respond to that demand by investing in innovations. Today, the Vaasa region has the best employment situation in all of Finland, and companies in the region recruit constantly more competent employees.
