German government: Norway is the most important energy resource for Germany
The German government has praised Norway as being Germany’s most important energy supplier.
“Norway is for Germany a very special partner,” said German deputy government spokesman Wolfgang Buechner, in Berlin, on Wednesday, noting that cooperation between the two countries is a exemplary example of strategic partnership in many important areas.
“Without the comprehensive and reliable supplies coming from Norway, the situation in Germany would have been a little more difficult this winter,” Buechner added.
German Economy Minister Robert Habeck plans to go to Norway, where he will hold political talks on Thursday and Friday, and meet representatives of the Norwegian economy.
The visit of the Minister, who also holds the position of German Vice Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Norway, will revolve around issues including offshore wind energy, the role of hydrogen as an energy source, expanding the infrastructure for renewable energy sources and storing carbon dioxide underground.
