dc.description.abstractThe goal of this thesis is to highlight the Norwegian paradox of being a sustainability advocate and an oil producer at the same time. This paradoxical position is facing an increasing amount of pressure. In 2019 the European Green Deal was set in motion, and in 2022 Russia invaded Ukraine, altering the geopolitical playing field in Europe. With these recent developments in mind, the thesis maps out the Norwegian debate on Norway's role in the energy transition, using essays written by Norwegian experts as empirical. I find that there is no consensus among Norwegian experts in clarifying the Norwegian paradox by deciding on the Norwegian role in the energy transition. This is strange considering the theories on the geopolitics of the energy transition are clear in the forecasted decline of petrostates. The Norwegian experts also highlight collaboration with the EU as key. The European Green Deal and its implications for Norway are examined, and a Norwegian short-term focus versus a long-term European plan is discussed. More research on the transitional phase itself might be necessary to assist Norwegian decision-makers in deciding on a strategy in time to emerge as relevant following the energy transition.
