Does the electrification of Johan Castberg save carbon emissions, and is it an efficient climate measure? »
An often discussed measure for reducing carbon emissions in Norway is the electrification of oil platforms. In this context, THEMA has evaluated the effect of electrification of Johan Castberg on carbon emissions, and estimated the abatement costs under which electrification of Johan Castberg can be said to be efficient in socio-economic terms.
In the public debate, the rapid growth in wind and PV capacity is often blamed for low spot market prices. Fact is, while renewable developments contributed somewhat to the price decline, the main reason for low power prices on the Continent and in the Nordics are reduced fuel and carbon prices.
