Total Energy consumption

Total energy consumption per capita is almost twice the EU average (5.1 toe), driven by an electricity consumption per capita that is four times the EU average and the highest in the world, at 23 250 kWh (2019).

The country's total energy consumption has remained stable at normal climate between 2012 and 2017 (around 28-29 Mtoe), but has been decreasing by 3%/year since then; actual ...

Renewable in % electricity production

Norway and Sweden have a common green certificate market since 2012 with the target to raise electricity generation from renewables by 28.4 TWh (equally divided between the countries) over the period 2012-2020. This renewable obligation contributes to the combined target of 40 TWh in 2020 of renewables and energy savings.

In June 2020, the government proposed tighter rules for onshore ...
