Büchner added that “Norway is a very special partner for Germany’’.

He said the cooperation was a “prime example” of a strategic partnership in many important areas.

“Without the extensive and reliable supplies from Norway, the situation in Germany would be a lot more difficult this winter,” Büchner said.

Germany’s Economy Minister, Robert Habeck, planned to travel to Norway on Wednesday evening, where he will hold political talks and meet business representatives on Thursday and Friday.

Topics to be discussed on the trip include marine-based wind energy, the role of hydrogen as an energy carrier, the expansion of the infrastructure for renewable energies and the underground storage of CO2.
