CREE is one of 11 Centres for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME) supported by The Research Council of Norwegian.
CREE will collect and develop knowledge on the effects of framework conditions in the energy market and on technological development, including innovation and the diffusion of technology for renewable energy, energy efficiency and carbon capture and storage. The centre provides a basis for better framework conditions and policy instruments designed to reach the energy and climate goals established nationally and internationally. CREE will also strive to develop the methodological framework required to reach these goals. Our portfolio is divided into five working packages studying international climate and energy policy, innovation and diffusion, markets and regulation, evaluation of policy measures, and development of numerical models.
