This area is notably represented by Bergen, the second-largest city in Norway, renowned for its historical significance and natural beauty.

Implementation of smart metering in the west

Consistent with EU regulations, Norway has rolled out smart metering across the country, including in the NO5 zone. These meters are vital for providing detailed electricity consumption data. In the western region, characterized by varied weather conditions and topography, smart meters aid in efficient energy management.

Residents of the NO5 zone, particularly in Bergen, utilize the data from these meters to optimize their electricity usage. This technology plays a key role in the region's approach to energy conservation and sustainability.

Renewable energy in the NO5 zone

The NO5 zone is committed to renewable energy, with a significant portion of its electricity generated from sustainable sources. While hydroelectric power dominates, the region also explores other renewable energies to diversify its energy portfolio. This approach underscores Norway's dedication to reducing environmental impacts and promoting green energy solutions.

Western Norway's landscape offers unique opportunities for harnessing renewable energy. The NO5 zone leverages these natural resources to maintain a stable and eco-friendly energy supply.

Electric vehicles in Bergen and surrounding areas

Bergen, within the NO5 zone, is actively embracing Norway's push towards electric vehicles (EVs). The region supports this transition with a growing network of charging stations and incentives for EV users.

Questions and answers about electricity

What determines the electricity spot price?

Supply and demand determine the price of electricity in Europe. If there is a high production of electricity from power plants and demand is low, the price will fall. If, on the other hand, the production of electricity is small and demand is high, prices will increase. Therefore, the price of electricity is often highest in winter, as the need for electricity for heating is highest.
