Green energy from the sea
Norway has Europe's largest population of kelp. An estimate is 50 million tonnes. Kelp has very good growing conditions along our cold coast. Energy demand in the world is expected to increase by 100 percent. If the kelp can be a source of sustainable bioenergy, then Norway should be well placed to be the host for such an industry, said Minister of Fisheries and Coastal Affairs Lisbeth Berg-Hansen when she opened the seminar: Kelp - green energy from the sea?
