Norway joins energy grid

Feb 05, 2010 01:00 AM

The Norwegian Minister of Petroleum and Energy, Terje Riis-Johansen, has signed a political declaration on strengthening the regional cooperation on development of an offshore energy grid in the North Sea region.
This means that Norway, although not a member of the EU, now forms the cooperation on an electricity grid in the North Sea together with Germany, France, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Ireland and the UK.

The goal of the cooperation is to coordinate the development of an offshore grid in the North Sea and connecting installations on the mainland.
There are plans to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the continuing work on this initiative later in 2010.

"Norway has a great potential for offshore wind power. Therefore, this cooperation is both interesting and important for us."
"I am glad that Norway has been invited to participate in an initiative that will be an important cooperation project for the countries around the North Sea," said Norwegian minister of petroleum and energy, Terje Riis-Johansen.
