Even though Finland, Sweden, Switzerland and France have all issued warnings about potential power rationing this winter, the Norwegian Water Resources and Energy Directorate (NVE) is certain this won’t happen in Norway. At least not until the transition from April to May next year. Transmission system operator Statnett has announced that the situation in southern Norway’s power system is ”tight”, meaning that the risk of rationing is somewhere in the interval 5-20%.

”There will be no rationing in the middle of winter, at the coldest time of year. If there is to be rationing, it won’t be until late spring, in April or May. People shouldn’t be afraid that electricity will go away this winter,” NVE writes on its website.
