Signed by 21 organisations from both countries, the Joint Norwegian-German Declaration  was presented in high-level events in Oslo and in Berlin, in April-June 2013.

It was the outcome of an intense civil society dialogue that I initiated in my function as SEFEP Programme Director. As a result, we achieved an unexpectedly broad consensus on a clear set of messages. This created a new basis for a broad acceptance for the measures needed to balance large amounts of wind and solar generation in Central and Northern Europe and in the North Sea area.

On the Joint Declaration’s website, you can find extensive information materials in English, German and Norwegian.
