28 June | 13:30 - 15:30 | Kristiansand | Open for all

Helen Campbell, EU Ambassador to Norway, talks about challenges and opportunities in relation to EU energy policy.

A major supplier of oil, gas and electricity, Norway is a key energy partner to the European Union. As a member of the European Economic Area Agreement it has adopted EU energy market rules through its national legislation. The recent focus on energy security has further strengthened the EU’s energy partnership with Norway. This early afternoon event seeks to cover a range of policy developments in Norway and the EU in order to take stock of the EU-Norway energy cooperation, including the implementation of EU energy rules in Norway and cooperation on technology.
