license, RE and FTL
applications

Conflicting
roles
Statnett as TSO:
- Tie-in to the domestic grid as TSO
- Obligation for tie-in, but no time
limits....
- Assessment of grid implications
- Key input to Construction license,
REA and FTLA
NRA (NVE)
•grants construction licence, but reports
directly to MOPE
•focus on technical issues
•MOPE is the appeal body...
The key issues for permitting processes are the mixed roles of Statnett and the
conflict of interest of MOPE as owner and regulator
