 The European energy union is important to Norway

February 25, 2015
The European Commission today presented a communication on a European energy union.

The aim is to ensure secure, sustainable, competitive and affordable energy for citizens and businesses.

The EU energy policy is of high importance to Norway.

The EU is Norway’s most important market, and much of the legislation affects them directly through the EEA agreement. But as a large energy producer, Norway is also important to the EU.

“I am glad to see that the Commission wants to further develop the partnership with Norway. I intend to follow-up on this, and will also participate in the further discussion on the energy union”, says Minister of Petroleum and Energy, Tord Lien.

In February, the Norwegian Minister participated at a high-level conference on the European energy union in Riga.
