About us

NIDECO AS (Norwegian International Development Company AS) was founded in February 2014, and is based in Oslo, Norway.


Our vision is to contribute significantly to the use of Sustainable Energy (SE) in developing countries and thereby contributing positively to sustainable development in urban and rural areas.


We provide products and solutions to people, the commercial sector and to the industry. Where no markets exist today (typical in rural areas) we have solutions for developing markets.



  • Target the need for modern energy services;
  • Offer scalable products and solutions;
  • Aim at replacing the use of fossil fuels and unhealthy energy practice with the production and use of Sustainable Energy.


Core Values

Trust is a fundamental value in NIDECO, and it is guiding for all aspects of the business.
