Federal Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle and Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Støre are keen to increase the use of renewable energies. The two ministers are to open a German-Norwegian expert workshop looking at this issue on Friday, 22 October in Bonn.
Norway holds 50% of West European oil and gas reserves and is Germany’s second largest energy supplier. The foreign ministers of both countries launched the German-Norwegian energy partnership in 2006 to provide momentum for the further development of renewable energy sources. Friday’s workshop will focus particularly on wind power.
