New website showing Nordic energy solutions
Nordicenergysolutions.org is the web page which envisages the Nordic Region becoming a leading exporter of sustainable energy solutions. The site i a showcase for Nordic sustainable energy solutions and includes research and development and public policy.
In 2007, the five Nordic prime ministers agreed on a joint approach to promoting sustainable energy solutions. The website “Nordic Energy Solutions” will serve as a window to the world for Nordic solutions in renewable energy technology, research and development, as well as political approaches to sustainable energy use.
The project is part of the Nordic globalisation initiative that forms the basis for innovative partnerships on the climate, the environment research and education. By showing the Nordic advantages on renewables, the project aims at contributing to international efforts to create sustainable energy systems.
The foundations for future international work on the climate will be laid in 2009. The website is one of a number of joint initiatives designed to disseminate information about Nordic experiences that compliment national strategies in this important area. The project is funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers and co-ordinated by Nordic Energy Research on behalf of the Renewable Energy Working Group.
Representatives of the Nordic energy authorities and ministries have been actively involved in the development of the website, as have other relevant working groups and institutions. The website will be expanded later on to cover energy efficiency solutions.
