FNI FOCAL POINTS OF RESEARCH

European Energy and Environmental Politics

EuropeFNI is a long-term analyst of European energy and environmental policy both within and outside the framework of the EU.

FNI research under this umbrella focuses on policy development and implementation, both at the domestic and EU level. FNI also studies the relationship between the EU, European states, Norway, and organisations and industry in the areas of energy and environmental policy. Priority is given to understanding EU climate change policy, herein the greenhouse gas emissions trading system and renewable energy and energy efficiency policies. Other key policy areas studies include transboundary pollution and marine issues.

FNI's energy research furthermore focuses on European energy market regulations and responses by energy sector actor. This includes energy companies' environmental and social responsibility (CSR) strategies.


Selected ongoing projects:
 The EU Energy and Climate Package: Causes, Content and Consequences (ECPack).
 Europeanization of Energy-Technological Innovation Systems: Drivers, Consequences and Strategic Challenges for Norway (ETIS).
