Energy consumption per capita in Norway is among the highest of the OECD countries. Norway´s energy generation is dominated by hydropower. However, the country has also been focusing on the development of other forms of renewable energy generation. A major reason for this is that the country possesses abundant cheap hydropower resources. The presence of an energy intensive industrial sector has also boosted energy demand in the country, although Norway continues to be a net exporter of electricity, as energy consumption is less than generation.
Energy production in Norway is not restricted to hydropower alone, and the country possesses substantial reserves of oil and gas, which it produces and exports to other nations. Thermal power generation in the country comprises gas-
and oil-fired power plants.
