The future is electric
This is Statnett's assessment of the power situation in various areas of Norway in this season. The assessment is based on statistical data regarding inflow to reservoirs in the various regions, reservoir fill rate, anticipated consumption and import capacity.
Nearly all electricity generated in Norway comes from hydropower plants. The hydropower plants' opportunities to produce power largely vary according to the level of precipitation from year to year. During years of heavy precipitation, we may generate far more than what is consumed in Norway, while we may depend on imports from neighbouring countries during dry years.
