Norwegian Energy's work within Safety, as previously collated under the Environment and Safety, is now taken in under the Industry Department and Department for District heating.

The Department for Environment handles important fields of expertise for Norsk Energi, such as environmental auditing, analysis, environmental management, environmental impact assessments and emission disbursement modelling. The International Department works within many of the same areas, but primarily on behalf of international financial organizations and Norwegian authorities, in regions such as Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Africa.

Common for the two departments have been the focus on issues related to environment, climate change and renewable energy. Expertise and experience from evaluation projects on behalf of public clients in Norway and abroad is also a common feature. With this backdrop, Norsk Energi has decided to merge the two departments. The new department holds the name Environment and Climate Change, and is managed by Endre Ottosen.

- The establishment of the Department for Environment and Climate Change is the right decision given the many overlapping disciplines, and ongoing collaboration between the two former departments. I think both employees and customers will benefit from having all this expertise and experience from Norway and abroad gather under one banner. The aim is to become even more proficient, and develop our services within environmental and climate related issues in a time of many exciting and important challenges, says Endre Ottosen.

The new department consists of a group of highly qualified senior consultants and principal consultants, who together possess many years of valuable experience in counseling and assessments for the industry sector, district heating and public authorities.

Here's a more detailed presentation of the employees.
