Henrik Karlstrøm IEA DSM Task 24 Norway’s energy story

  1. 1. Norway’s energy story Three policy cases and the reasoning behind them
  2. 2. Case overview • Smart metering (Demo Steinkjer) • Buildings (Myhrerenga BRL) • Transport (Nobil) • SMEs (Finnfjord)
  3. 3. Case I: Smart metering • Pilot for smart meter rollout – 700 households initially, 4500 projected. 66 SMEs • Smart meters allow for supplier control of “low priority consumption such as hot water heating and underfloor heating cables” • Hourly billing and increased monitoring will be provided to customers.
  4. 4. Smart metering • Rationale: “The ultimate aim of the demo is that after ten years Steinkjer will have a community of active, aware and adaptable energy customers.” • This is how they will be activated and adapted:
  5. 5. Time series analysis
  6. 6. Reasoning • Consumers unsure what to do with it • Suppliers very keen • National roll-out in 2017
  7. 7. Case II: Building retrofits • Retrofitting of a housing cooperative outside Oslo to passive house standard • 168 households in seven buildings, from 1967 – Two types: single bedroom and two-bedroom
  8. 8. Retrofits • Result of complaints about draft, poor indoor climate and high electricity bills • Thicker insulation, heat pumps, new water heaters, 44 solar heaters • Projected yearly consumption change: 300 to 80 kWh/m2
  9. 9. Notables • Initiated by inhabitants themselves – Resourceful and active (not like the people of Steinkjer?) • Supported by willing agency – Works only for experimental projects? • Relies on willingness to large outlay with long payback time
  10. 10. Case III: EVs • Nobil, an online database of all charging stations for EVs nationwide (currently more than 4000), provides real-time information on their status • Combines GPS data with an online API, for both web and mobile
  11. 11. Norway and EVs • World’s largest EV fleet in relation to population • Very favourable incentive structures – Tax breaks, use of car pool lanes, free parking • Stated goal of increasing EV adoption
  12. 12. How is this efficiency? • Facilitation for large EV fleets – Urban environments (taxis) – Car pools • Centralisation of emissions
