NUPI’s Energy Programme is an independent, interdisciplinary research programme that deals with international politics and economics related to energy issues. The programme was established in 2006.
The Energy Programme aims to serve as a forum for analyses of geopolitics. In addition, it examines Norway’s international role and the importance of oil and gas for Norwegian foreign policy. The intention is to function as an arena and meeting place for various groups, in Norway and abroad, working on related issues. The Energy Programme seeks to involve the departments at NUPI and other institutions in order to strengthen the understanding of Norway’s role as an energy power in a global perspective and to generate debate on international energy politics
