In Norway, the parliamentary process has resulted in a broad public debate on what consequences an affiliation with the EU’s energy union and the energy agency ACER may have for Norwegian resource management.

  • What exactly is ACER’s function and responsibility?
  • What does it mean in practice that the national regulatory authorities shall act independent of the national government?
  • What particular challenges arise for non-EU Member States, such as Norway?
  • Which challenges and opportunities do the EU legislation entail for the Norwegian power sector?
