A seminar on large scale integration of wind power was held in Oslo in September, another sign that Norway is getting serious about wind energy. The event, which attracted 53 delegates from utilities, universities and the public sector, was chaired by Frank Nielsen from utility Oslo Energi. With only 8 MW of wind capacity installed so far, several large Norwegian companies and utilities -- among them Statkraft and Norsk Hydro -- are considering building large wind projects. The government is expected to introduce some form of economic support for wind power development before the year's end.
