Domestic Politics and Wind Energy |  We are ready for an open discussion on energy policy in Rana with Arv Ulrichsen and Motvind Norge with many other participants in the session

Rana SV called an open discussion session at Mo Samfunnshus on Thursday 20th April. The panel discussion will be led by Rana SV Leader, Ingrid Lorentzen Kjeldal. Rana SV mentioned the background to the discussion as follows:

“Over the past 10 years, the climate issue has become the single most important issue globally, and there is a binding international agreement on reducing global carbon emissions. At the same time, the shift to more carbon-neutral energy use could put more pressure on nature and biodiversity. Since the development of new renewable energy in our region is likely to be one of the central issues in the election campaign this fall, it is important to highlight energy policy from different points of view.

Lorentzen Keld will present the discussion, and Francisca Kapfgel Herbst, leader of the AP’s Sami Political Council, will present an appeal. It will also be open to questions from the public.

In the press release leading up to the discussion session, Rana SV reports that on the list of key questions that the discussion meeting will address are the following:

• What strength do we need in northern Norway to move forward?

• What realistic industrial facilities can be envisioned in the next few years, and what does this mean for energy demand?

• How big is the energy efficiency potential?

• What will the growing need for carbon neutral energy mean for nature and the environment?

• Should one invest in less future growth as part of the strategy?
