Policy in 'Blue Battery'


Norway is a ‘green battery’ for Europe.

The development of the Norwegian hydropower system contributes to a faster decommission of fossil and nuclear fuel based generation in EU. All countries are collaborating and are shaping their energy policies to implement efficient measures towards achieving ambitious decomisioning goals.

Hydropower capacity upgrades are done respecting nature and with a minimum possible impact on the environment and on local communities. The path towards this future is early decided and shaped. However this scenario may extend to 2050 due to the tremendous work to be done.
