Power Generation and Market

The Norwegian power industry represents significant value creation for the country and employs a large number of people. The hydropower sector is the backbone of the industry, but a number of new sectors and stakeholder groups are gradually emerging. This includes onshore and offshore wind power, solar and bioenergy.

Production of power requires various permits, and the legislation sets a number of requirements that producers must comply with. Trading on the Norwegian and Nordic power markets is also heavily regulated. Cost-effective operations are crucial for profitability, and ensuring proper regulatory compliance and reducing legal risk are key elements in this.
