Energy & Climate Change

The energy sector is in transition and requires cross-sectoral expertise. While Norway remains a reliable producer of oil and gas also the Norwegian renewables industry represents significant value creation and employs a great number of people. The hydropower sector represents the core of the business, but new sectors and businesses are emerging. This includes on- and offshore wind power, solar and bio energy. Realization of the world's and Norway's climate ambitions necessitates a large-scale electrification of the society. This will require significant investments in grid infrastructure, charging solutions and development and commercialization of smart solutions to ensure flexibility and robustness in the power system.
