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.The seminar on the Nordic Electricity Market in the EU’s Energy Union will addess the following questions:
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.
