Norway Energy Hub

The next step for Norway as an energy nation

Norway Energy Hub

Norway Energy hub is Equinor’s industrial plan for Norway’s future energy industry, placing Norway at centre stage in accelerating the energy transition. The plan can lead to 350 billion NOK in investments from the private sector. Equinor estimates that we will invest around 100 billion NOK under this plan.

Equinor aims to be a leading player in the energy transition. This also means that we will shoulder our share of the responsibility for making Norway, as an energy nation, a hub for the rest of Europe. 'Norway energy hub' is an initiative from Equinor, with a clear encouragement to cooperate in combating climate change and ensuring value creation in the energy transition. The opportunity to act is now.

Equinor is ready to contribute:

We want Norway to retain its position as an important and stable exporter of energy to Europe. Together with partners, we are investing 50 billion NOK in emissions reductions on the NCS, developing offshore wind, CCS and early phase hydrogen projects. Now we’re raising the bar with a further ~100 billion NOK in investments.

To get there. Together
