    Norway: Statnett's study highlights need for grid investments

    December 5, 2022 - M-Brain Nordic News


      Norwegian grid company Statnett's has published a report called "Consumption, Offshore Wind and Grid in Southern and Eastern Norway", stating that there will be a significant demand for power from the industry over time. Offshore wind power may contribute to cover this demand to a great extent. While consumption in the region is expected to nearly double to 3,500-5,000 MW, new offshore wind energy from the South North Sea II project may generate 3,000-4,500 MW in 10-15 years, Statnett's Executive Vice President Gunnar Løvås says. However, there is need for large grid investments. Gunnar Løvås highlights the need for a new 420 kv power line between the Arendal area and Bamble. In addition, the grid between Bamble and Flesaker and further to Oslo and Østfold must be upgraded to 420 kv.
