How can environmental and energy policy concerns best be combined? This was the main question that GOVREP wanted to answer by producing knowledge and policy recommendations that could improve political and administrative practices designed to achieve more sustainable electricity production in Norway and Sweden.

During the last decade we have seen several changes in energy and environmental policies concerning mitigation and adaptation of climate change and management of water resources stemming from different political levels (global, European and national). There is a growing need for electricity in Europe, and it remains a challenge to identify appropriate means for realizing new renewable production capacity while at the same time taking into account environmental and social concerns.
