Norway becomes ‘largest’ energy supplier to Germany

Norway is now Germany’s largest energy supplier. The Scandinavian country is a “very special partner” for Germany, a government spokesman in Berlin said on Wednesday.

In his eyes, the cooperation is a “perfect example” of a strategic partnership covering several key areas. “Without the sustained and reliable contributions from Norway, the situation in Germany would be significantly more complicated this winter,” the spokesperson added.

German Economy Minister Robert Habeck is due to visit Norway on Wednesday evening. Several political interviews are scheduled for Thursday and Friday as well as meetings with economic representatives.

On the menu for discussion: offshore wind energy, the role of hydrogen as an energy vector, the extension of the infrastructure for renewable energies, and the underground storage of CO2.
