UK electricity supply is in danger
(MENAFN) According to Terje Aasland, Oslo's petroleum and energy minister, Norway may cut back on electricity exports to the United Kingdom because low water levels are endangering local hydroelectric power production.
Aasland reportedly informed the Norwegian parliament on Monday that Norway should prioritize filling water dams above electricity generation and exports since water levels in the nation's reservoirs were falling below the seasonal normal as a result of the dry weather.
According to Aasland, production of energy in southern Norway has already decreased by 18 percent from last year, and last week's output in the southwest was the lowest thus far the current year.
He was cited as having declaring. However, supply disruptions are anticipated for next April or May, the minister claimed, adding that rationing this winter is unlikely, “this results in historically high electricity prices and a situation where, for the first time in many years, we cannot completely rule out a period of electricity rationing in the spring.”
