The Inland Norway Energy Agency is a part of a broad network of european energy agencies (photo: iStock).The Inland Norway Energy Agency was the first in Norway to receive funding from the EU programme Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) for its intial three years. The agency is part of a broad network of regional and local European energy agencies.

The main goal for this cooperation is exchanging knowledge and experiences, and to communicate state of the art technology and good practice from Europe to Norwegian municipalities and businesses.

International cooperation is important to keep the Agency and its target groups up to date on the technological development within energy efficiency and the conversion to renewable energy in Europe.

Cooperation with Swedish Energy Agencies

Our neighbouring country Sweden have several longstanding and experienced energy agencies. The Inland Norway Energy Agency is therefore profiting in terms of shared experiences and cooperation with Swedish energy agencies.

The Agency had a Swedish mentor energy agency assisting us in the start-up phase, and we have a wide and positive cooperation on several projects with our Swedish colleagues.

European Networks

Energy Management Agency - Intelligent Energy EuropeManagEnergy is the European Commission initiative for local and regional actors promoting energy efficiency and renewables. ManagEnergy is a technical support initiative of the Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) programme of the European Commission which aims to support actors from the public sector and their advisers working on energy efficiency and renewable energies at the local and regional level.

The Inland Norway Energy Agency is also a member of FEDARENE,the European Federation of Agencies and Regions for Energy and the Environment. This membership gives the Agency access to project databases, conferences and seminars, as well as a network for exchanging experiences and knowledge with other energy agencies.
