Norwegian hydroelectric power is referred to as Europe’s green battery.
Internationally, there is an ongoing discussion of how to achieve a binding climate agreement to drastically reduce harmful CO2 emissions. The world needs more energy, and it needs to be sustainable.
With an increasing share of power production dependent on sun and wind, the need for flexibility is increasing. Hydroelectric power helps to secure this flexibility. This energy can be stored in reservoirs and used when the need is greatest, creating stability and balance. These are properties that other renewable sources such as wind and solar energy do not possess. Norwegian hydroelectric power is green and renewable!
