Statkraft struggles with distant investments

Although Statkraft notes increasing earnings due to positive Nordic electricity prices, the company still faces challenges from investments far away from its hometown Oslo.

Statkraft's international energy production, which mainly covers hydropower in South America, Eastern Europe, and Turkey, took a dive in net earnings of more than 25 percent in the first quarter. The division only made NOK 187 million (EUR 19.8 million), compared to earnings in the same quarter last year of NOK 255 million.
