The Norwegian Parliament is currently considering whether the EU’s Third Energy Package should be implemented in the EEA Agreement and incorporated in Norwegian law. The parliamentary process has contributed to a broad public debate on what consequences an affiliation with the EU’s energy union and the energy agency ACER may have for Norwegian resource management.
- But what exactly is ACER’s function and responsibility?
- What does it mean in practice that the national regulatory authorities shall act independently of the national government?
- What particular challenges arise for non-EU Member States, such as Norway? And what challenges and opportunities arise from the EU legislation for the Norwegian power sector?
These questions and more will be addressed through in-depth discussions at this free-of-charge seminar.
