RGI welcomes new Member: Statnett

RGI warmly welcomes our newest Member, Statnett - Norway's transmission system operator.

Joining as a new RGI member, Statnett is Norways's transmission system operator and is owned by the Norwegian state through the Ministry of Petroleum and Energy.

Their mission is securing power supply through operations, monitoring and preparedness, facilitating the realisation of Norway's climate objectives, and facilitating creation of value for their customers and the society in general.

Statnett plays a key role in the green transition in Norway by facilitating electrification and contributing to the goal of zero emissions by 2050. According to Statnett's analyses, current power consumption of around 140 TWh could rise to up to 260 TWh in 2050.  Significantly increased capacity in the grid and increased power production will be necessary in the near future to meet the consumption increases required by society's various goals. To respond to this large expected increase in power consumption in the coming years, they are currently finalizing a new strategy. This will prepare the company, so that it can ensure continued good security of supply and facilitate sustainable value creation based on an energy system that delivers on the target of zero emissions in 2050.  Find out about existing and planned projects on Statnett's website.

Hilde Tonne, CEO, on Statnett joining RGI:

"The long-term effort of RGI in advancing renewable energy in Europe is widely recognized. At Statnett we appreciate the value of RGI as representing a multi-stakeholder platform, and we are looking forward to working with other companies and NGOs to develop sustainable solutions. We believe that joining RGI will help us support our increased ambitions on climate and nature action to accelerate the green transition in Europe."

We welcome Statnett to the RGI family and look forward to collaborating on our many shared interests!
