In total, the Norwegian state will receive around NOK 27.6 billion in revenue in taxes and dividends from Statkraft for 2021.
The information was revealed in the Finance Ministry’s written response to parliamentary representative Marius Arion Nilsen (FRP) and in response to the Red Party’s Sofie Marhaug, E24 writes.
According to the Ministry of Finance, that is twice as much as usual, and between 2010 and 2020, these revenues averaged NOK 11.4 billion.
However, Trygve Slagsvold Vedum’s ministry emphasized that the estimates are uncertain, that they must be interpreted with caution, and that the increased revenues are somewhat offset by the fact that electricity costs to the public sector are also rising sharply due to expensive electricity prices.
