The Norwegian Wind Energy Association (NORWEA) is the voice of the Norwegian wind industry, actively promoting the utilization of wind power in Norway and the Nordic countries. The Association is situated in the heart of Oslo, ensuring close proximity to the Norwegian decision makers.

NORWEA has more than 125 corporate members, which demonstrates that this Norwegian industry is ready to “take off”. In addition, NORWEA works closely with the other Nordic wind energy associations and together all this makes Scandinavia’s most powerful wind energy network. NORWEA also work with promoting renewable energy production offshore (wind, wave and tidal) where Norway has a great future potential.


NORWEA has strong collaboration with the European Wind Energy Association in order to communicate EU policy to its member companies and decision makers. NORWEA provides services to support members’ requirements including interconnection between member companies, high profile seminars and information on the latest research, analysis and regulatory decisions.


In terms of energy resources Norway is in an outstanding position. Norway, a pioneer within the development of hydro power, is alone accounting for more than 45% of the total European hydro power production. Norwegian hydro power has created the basis for a security of supply unique to the European energy market. With the enormous potential within wind power, Norway has the means of becoming a major player in the European transition into a low-carbon energy future.


Norwegian wind power will play a substantial role in the European approach to a sustainable future. Not only will the mix of our hydro and wind power provide Europe directly and indirectly with clean renewable energy, but it will also become a part of Norway’s energy success – environmentally, economically and socially. And as the Norwegian success story so far has been limited to oil and hydro, the country is about to create the perfect energy triangle made up of economic growth, security of supply and finally and outmost, sustainability from the power of wind.
