Keeping the lights on in Europe this winter
90% of all electricity in Norway comes from rain and snow. That makes Norway Europe’s biggest producer of hydropower, and number six in the world. Norway also has half of Europe’s reservoir storage capacity. However – Norway has just had its driest 12 months in 26 years. Is Norway about to shut down its energy sharing? Just when Europe needs help to keep the lights and heating on during the toughest winter in decades?
