Energy Consumption and Efficiency
Energy Consumption in Norway
This area shows development using all energy products in all sectors in Norway. Energy products can be divided into seven main groups; electricity, district heating, oil, coal, gas, bioenergy and gasoline/diesel.
Eco-design and Energy Labelling of Products
The eco-design and energy-labelling directive are two measures initiated by the EU and aim to reduce the environmental impact of energy-related products throughout their life cycle, enabling consumers to choose the most energy-efficient product on the market.
Energy Labelling of Buildings and Housing
The energy-label shows the housing or buildings energy condition through an energy category and a heating category. It is the owner’s duty to energy-label. The label should be used when selling and renting; and for large technical facilities, it should be hanged visible to the users.
In buildings with air conditioning, and heating using oil and gas, there is a duty to do regularly an energy assessment of the facilities.
