Kevin Johnsen graduated from the Energy Master in 2016, and immediately started working for Nordic Energy Research based in Oslo. He held a presentation for the Bergen Energy Lab on the 31st of January 2017.

Kevin presented work done through Nordic Energy Research to identify challenges faced by Nordic countries to achieve goals of decarbonisation by 2050.  

The project was based on international reports from the IEA as well as national reports from Nordic countries on future energy scenarios. Some challenges were pointed out to be electrification of the primary energy supply, renovation of existing buildings to become more energy efficient and long distance transportation like air traffic.
