This report represents the national case study of Norway for the EIE-project “Monitoring of Energy Demand Trends and Energy Efficiency in the EU – ODYSSEE-MURE”. It presents the recent energy efficiency trends in Norway on the basis of indicators extracted from the ODYSSEE database. Total energy consumption (not including energy as feedstock) has increased from 16.6 Mtoe (195 TWh) in 1990 to 19.2 Mtoe (226 TWh) in 2007 and has been relatively constant the last ten years. Energy consumption in manufactur-ing industry has increased by 10 % from 1990 to 2007, but is lower in 2007 than in 1998. Final energy use in households has increased from 3515 ktoe (41 TWh) in 1990 to 3826 (45 TWh) in 2007. The climate corrected energy use has been at approximately 4000 ktoe since the mid 1990s. It seems to be an inter-rupt in the increase of energy use in households, despite the growth of all common used drivers in this sector. Energy efficiency policies and measures implemented since 1990 have con-tributed to improve the efficiency by 13 %, or 0.7 % per year; this means that if these policies and measures would not have been implemented, the final en-ergy consumption would have been 13 % higher in 2007 (or approximately 1.9 Mtoe or 22 TWh).
