Wind power is the most climate-friendly form of energy and the one with the smallest ecological footprint. We contribute to electrifying the transportation sector and a low-emission society.
Energy efficiency improvement is the most cost-effective way to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. However, in order to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the International Energy Agency (IEA) say that significant amounts of renewable energy will have to be produced. Both the IPCC and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) rank wind power as the technology solution that provides the best climate impact and the smallest ecological footprint of all the renewable and fossil ways of producing electric power.
Many people have strong opinions regarding wind power in Norway, but are they based on the right facts?Read more
Wind and hydro power complement each other. They interact in the delivery of the most emission-free, energy-efficient and cost-effective electric power there is. It is a myth that these two unique sources of energy are in conflict with each other – in fact, it is quite the contrary.Read more
The governement have suggested increased taxes for the industry by implementation of a resource rent tax on wind power, an increased production fee and an extraordinary tax on the energy sold for a price that exceeds 70 øre per kWh.t, and a doubling of the production fee.
