Sturgeon highlights offshore wind and CCS sectors in Norway partnership

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has told Norwegian business leaders that Scotland and Norway are “natural partners” for helping each other achieve net zero emissions.

Addressing the Confederation of Norwegian Enterprise conference in Oslo on 8 January, Sturgeon highlighted offshore wind and carbon capture and storage (CCS) as sectors where the two countries are at the forefront of developing technologies.

She said she hoped the North Connect project – a 600km cable transporting electricity between Scotland and Norway – would progress in the near future following positive analysis by both the UK and Norwegian regulators.
