Switch - To a Smarter Future
Jan Oivind Johansen - Norwegian Ministry of Energy
"With good cooperation, we can optimize the benefit to all"
"We have a strong tradition of public ownership in Norway"
"50% of the world’s underground hydro stations are in Norway"
"Renewable energy provides more than 60% of the total energy consumption in Norway"
"On average, electricity cost in Norway is 3 to 4 US cents per kilowatt hour"
"We have waterfalls everywhere, so it was quite obvious we would start developing this resource"
"Hydropower is stabilizing the grid for intermittent sources"
"Most is done through remote control"
"Intermittent sources work well with plug-in vehicles"
"It’s responsible for 99% of electricity generation"
