Strategic Challenges in International Climate and Energy Policy (CICEP)

CICEP logoThere are two goals set for CICEP. First, the Centre will help identify and design realistic policy options and strategies that can effectively drive the transition toward a low carbon future. Second, it will build knowledge about the consequeces of plausible policy options for international and European energy and energy technology markets for major Norwegian industries and for government strategies.

The work is organized in five work packages (WPs). FNI is involved in three of these. WP 1 deals with 'Domestic policy development - driving forces and long-term trajectories'. WP 2 deals with 'Exploring effective and feasible international climate regimes'. WP 4 deals with 'European climate, energy and technology policies: Opportunities and constraints for Norwegian actors'. CICERO has the main responsibility for the first two packages while FNI has the main responsibilty for WP 4.


See the CICEP website for more information.


Project coordinator at FNI: Steinar Andresen
Leader of WP 4: Per Ove Eikeland

Project period: 2011-2016
