The Norwegian Wind Energy Association (NORWEA) is the voice of the Norwegian wind and ocean energy industry. NORWEA has, since it was established
in 2006, promoted the utilization of renewable energy from wind in Norway.
We are ideally situated in the heart of Oslo ensuring close proximity to Norwegian decision makers. With approximately 130 members: developers, contractors, electricity providers, wind turbine manufacturers, component suppliers,
research institutes, finance and insurance companies, lawyers, consultants and
research institutions, NORWEA represents the entire value chain of the industry. We are the industry’s key meeting place for wind and ocean energy academics, political discussions and industrial collaboration.
NORWEAs lobbying helps create a suitable legal and financial framework within which members can successfully develop their businesses.
NORWEA analyses, formulates and establishes policy positions together with
the wind and ocean industry on key issues.
NORWEA produces a large variety of information tools and manages campaigns aimed at raising awareness about the benefits of wind and ocean renewable energy, dispelling the myths about wind and ocean energy and providing
easy access to credible information.
NORWEA organizes numerous regular events: conferences, seminars and
workshops, together with and for the industry.
This makes NORWEA the most powerful and successfull network for wind and
ocean energy in Norway.
