Powered mostly by electricity produced in hydroelectric dams, Norway currently has an installed wind power capacity of 3.6 Twh, he added, only a fraction of neighbouring Sweden’s volume.

OSLO: Norway’s wind power production capacity may exceed 10 terawatt hours (Twh) by 2020, the country’s energy minister Terje Soeviknes said.

Powered mostly by electricity produced in hydroelectric dams, Norway currently has an installed wind power capacity of 3.6 Twh, he added, only a fraction of neighbouring Sweden’s volume.

“By 2020, it is likely that we will have more than 10 terawatt hours of wind power developed in this country,” said Soeviknes in a speech late on Thursday.

Sweden’s annual production capacity for wind last year stood at about 17.3 Twh, the Swedish wind energy association estimates showed.
