Background on the government’s offshore wind initiative:
The government has an ambition to award areas that has potential for 30,000 MW of offshore wind production by 2040. In 2020, the first areas on the Norwegian continental shelf were opened for offshore renewable energy production, and the authorities have since worked to further develop the regulatory framework in close cooperation with the industry and other users of the sea.
