Renewable Energy
& Environmental Technology

Thanks to our hydropower resources, we have produced renewable and clean hydropower for more than one hundred years, resulting in a share of renewable energy in Norway’s total energy consumption of about 60 %. This resulted in a skilled renewable industry at home, which later has become increasingly more international.

Norway has long placed an emphasis on environmental issues both through global cooperation as well as initiatives on the national, regional and local level. In Norway we have ongoing work regarding other renewable energy sources which have the potential to provide additional supply. This includes wind power on- and offshore, osmotic power, solar power and bio energy. 

Research, development and demonstration are essential elements in bringing down cost. The Government’s research and development budget for renewable energy has increased four-fold between 2007 and 2011.

It this issue we present you with an overview of the most important Norwegian environmental organizations as well as a series of articles to give you a more in-depth understanding of Norway’s present focus and activities. In the second half of the magazine you will find cutting-edge Norwegian companies within energy and renewable technology that provide their products or services on the global market.
