Commercial Enterprise fear power shortage

The lack of enough power can mean the regions goal of enticing new enterprise establishment will fail.

Regional developer in Ryfylke IKS, Ketil Barkved, thinks our politicians need to wake up.
– Power capacity is already critical in some areas. This means that commercial enterprises needing power will not be able to establish themselves here. This has an impact on the municipalities in regard to employment and revenue. For instance, for Hjelmeland this means the municipality will have to decline energy -intensive companies wishing to set themselves up in the area until the power grid is upgraded, says Barkved.

Globally we´re going electric – in most areas. That means an increased need for power. Although South-West Norway produces a substantial amount of Norwegian electricity, it has little consequence for the regions power capacity.

    08. May 2019

    The past few years have seen more and more stressed out, burnt out, and struggling people turn to celebrities and psychologists for direction leading to record sales of self-help books. The cynics amongst us might groan internally at this news, although I suspect that many do not have a true understanding of what ‘self help’ constitutes or what it can offer. I myself prefer the term self curiosity or self reflection, rather than self help. It opens up my mind to possibilities rather than closing it down at the expectation of pop-psychology and quick, but short lived, “fixes”.
