The Conservative Party does not want to limit the export of electricity, nor does it want to introduce a maximum price, the party’s energy politician Nikolai Astrup stated.

In recent months, several parties and the trade union movement have advocated a maximum price for electricity. 

Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre (AP) recently told NTB that he is skeptical about the measure but added that the government is investigating two variants of the maximum price.

Astrup, who sits on the Energy and Environment Committee in the Norwegian parliament (Storting), says that he does not want a maximum price.

“A maximum price for electricity could, in the worst case, lead to an even worse situation with electricity rationing. It can lead to us not having light in houses,” Astrup told the newspaper Klassekampen.

  1. So the Conservative Party supports sending weapons into the Ukraine War to continue it and – with Norway’s electricity exports unlimited – the scarcity and price of electricity to continue to worsen
    Is the Conservative Party a Norwegian political party, or is its ultimate loyalty ideological and elsewhere?
